WP1: Project Management and Administration

D1.1 SSHOC Project Management Plan

The SSHOC Project Management Plan is the main project management document and describes how major aspects of the project are managed, monitored and controlled. It is intended to provide guidance and direction for specific conduct, planning, and control activities such as schedule, efforts, internal communication, reporting procedures, adjustments, etc.

D1.2 Quality Assurance & Risk Assessment Plan

“Social Sciences & Humanities Open Cloud” (hereinafter also referred to as “SSHOC”, project reference: 823782).

D1.3 First Annual Progress & Activity Report

This deliverable is the first annual progress report for the SSHOC project, and as such, one of three planned progress reports to be delivered during the project lifetime. It states the progress and status of work in the first year of the SSHOC project (M1-M12). The information gathered here will be updated after six months, (and thus form the official EC periodic report); the next progress report will follow in 2021. The report starts with a general plan for the SSHOC project in Year 1 (2019), and lists the main objectives set up to be achieved.

WP2: Communication, Dissemination, and Impact

D2.1 SSHOC Overall Communication and Outreach Plan

The purpose of the present document is to define the strategy and foreseen activities for communication and outreach for SSHOC WP2, “Dissemination, Communication and Impact”. In particular, a drill-down on the stakeholder groups and channels utilised is enclosed.

Given the cross-cutting theme of the WP, the ideas and guidelines sketched out in this document affect the creation of all content within the project.

WP3: Lifting Technologies and Services into the SSH Cloud

D3.1 Report on SSHOC (meta)data interoperability problems

This deliverable is a report on SSHOC metadata and data interoperability problems. It pertains to Task 3.5 under responsibility of CESSDA/FSD. In addition to an inventory of data and metadata interoperability problems, this deliverable includes choices for SSHOC recommended formats and priorities for providing conversion services and planning solutions.

D3.2 Inventory of SSH citation practices, and choice for SSHOC citation formats and implementation planning

This report delivers a comprehensive overview of data citation methodologies in use within the social sciences and humanities, and lays the groundwork for defining a common citation mechanism designed to render SSH data both findable and actionable.

WP4: Innovations in Data Production

D4.1 A sample management system for cross- national web survey

The European Social Survey ERIC (ESS) experimented with the world’s first cross-national probability-based online panel, named CRONOS, recruited off the back of ESS Round 8. One of the biggest challenges of the project was the coordination and harmonised management of the sample in the three different European countries taking part in the project (Estonia, Slovenia and Great Britain.

SSHOC D4.12 Guidelines for the integration of Audio Capture data in Survey Interviews

This report pertains to Task 4.4 under Work Package 4 Innovations in Data Production, and documents the design of a computer assisted module which enables digital language data to be captured from recorded interviews carried out during social surveys.

D4.14 Policy API Tool

This document sets out the rationale, design and guidelines for use of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development’s (OECD) Family Policy Calculator Application Programming Interface (API). The API was developed and deployed as part of Task 4.5 in the Social Science and Humanities Open Cloud. The task looks to bring existing, widely used data sources into the European Open Science Cloud, increase their interoperability and integrate them within the data processing of existing Social Science Research Infrastructures.

D4.16 Specification of the new features of the Aïoli platform

This report is the first deliverable of the Task 4.6 “Semantic annotation of Heritage Science Data” within the WP4 “Innovations in Data Production”. The focus of this task is the development of an innovative web service for the reality-based 3D annotation of heritage artefacts within the SSHOC infrastructure. The report contains specifications for appropriate upgrades to the Aioli platform which will provide the base for this service.
