It is important to understand the general framework of use for a vocabulary publication platform for the SSHOC project. In SSHOC, it is crucial to support better discovery of SSH research data in order to ensure better access and reusability. This will be made possible through support for multilinguality. In infrastructures, metadata aggregation platforms are provided that map metadata to a shared common ontology usually in English.
The report contains a global workplan for SSHOC Task 3.6 with respect to SSHOC Switchboard and Virtual Collection Registry integration and extension.
The milestone MS12 is described in the SSHOC GA as an “Implementation plan SSHOC Switchboard and VCR services”, verifiable by: “A flexible planning for the extension and integration of SSHOC Switchboard and VCR”.
This document reports on the SSHOC project Milestone 14 inventory process and results. Earlier work of task 3.5 delivered D3.1 Report on SSHOC (meta)data interoperability problems, which provided an inventory of metadata and data formats used by the SSHOC communities, recommendations for metadata standards and data file formats, and priorities for providing conversion services.
