This report recapitulates the work done in SSHOC Task T9.3, the Data Community Project for Electoral Studies. Its purpose was to develop a pilot of a Knowledge Graph (KG) in the field of Electoral Studies. The first sections of the report recapitulate the background of and motivation for this purpose, and the manner in which the pilot-KG was developed. Section 4 discusses a number of overarching insights that derive from the work done and the experiences that were gained in the process.
Three of the Tasks in WP9 (Data Communities) are associated with particular user communities. These are Ethnic and Migration Studies (associated with T9.2), Electoral Studies (associated with T9.3), and Heritage Science (associated with T9.4). Each of these three tasks has as a major part of its remit the production of services, tools, procedures and data of direct relevance for their respective user communities.
This report presents information about how tools produced in the context of WP9 (Data Communities) have been received in their intended user communities. This emphasis on usability and usefulness is applied to, respectively to the following tools:
This report describes the Ethnic and Migrant Minorities (EMM) Survey Registry, an online, publicly available database and tool that displays compiled, survey-level metadata of existing quantitative surveys undertaken with ethnic and migrant minority (EMM) populations in Europe.
This document is a deliverable of the Social Sciences and Humanities Open Cloud (SSHOC) project. It is a report assessing the feasibility of setting up, as part of the CESSDA ERIC-led European Question Bank (EQB), a collection dedicated to the questionnaires and question items included in quantitative surveys on Ethnic and Migrant Minorities’ (EMMs’) inclusion and/or integration identified as part of the creation of the EMM Survey Registry (i.e. the SSHOC Deliverable 9.4 Database with the metadata of surveys to EMMs across Europe1).
This report is Deliverable D9.6 of the SSHOC project. It provides a precondition for subsequent reports D9.7 (Design and Planning of a Knowledge Graph), and D9.9 (Production of a user validated Knowledge Graph). Knowledge graphs are infrastructural tools, in the form of models of knowledge in a substantive domain that connect otherwise isolated silos of information about, for example, publications, data-sets, events, people, tools, etc. They allow the identification of relationships between the objects in these different silos that would otherwise be difficult to detect.
This report constitutes SSHOC Deliverable 9.7 Design and Planning of Knowledge Graph in Electoral Studies. It describes the approach as well as the implementation plan for the SSHOC Pilot project in the field of electoral studies, which will constitute Deliverable 9.9.
This report constitutes SSHOC Deliverable 9.8, which describes the planned User Community Involvement in the Development of a Knowledge Graph for Electoral Studies. The report links up closely with the reports of Deliverable D9.6 (‘Demarcation Report of Electoral Studies User Community’) and Deliverable 9.7 (‘Design and Planning of Knowledge Graph in Electoral Studies’).
The SSHOC project Deliverable D9.9 Delivery of User Validated Knowledge Graph and Election Studies Analytics Dashboard, describes the implementation of the SSHOC Pilot project in the field of Electoral Studies. It describes the efforts to create a domain specific Taxonomy, capable of modelling experts' knowledge in the field, in order to weave an integration layer between the various contributions on the domain of Electoral Studies.
