WP3: Lifting Technologies and Services into the SSH Cloud

D3.9 Report on Ontology and Vocabulary Collection and Publication

This deliverable pertains to SSHOC Task 3.1 which was responsible for investigating and providing resources and tools to support the multilingual aspects of the future pan-EU SSH infrastructure.

Making data and services accessible and usable in SSH is very much also a matter of providing relevant translations, translation of metadata concepts, multilingual vocabularies, terminology extraction across languages, multilingual databases.

MS8 Choice of Vocabulary Publication platform for SSHOC

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.

MS12 Implementation plan SSHOC Switchboard and VCR Services

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”.

MS14 Inventory of existing (meta-)data format interoperability solutions

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.

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.

D4.11 Report on the experience with the automatic verification programme in SHARE wave 9

This document is the deliverable D4.11 of the Horizon2020 project “Social Sciences & Humanities Open Cloud”). It reports on the experience with the automatic verification checks implemented during the development phase of the questionnaire for SHARE wave 9. It describes the outcomes of the exercise, and it points out the critical issues to be addressed for further development.

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 report 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) developed and deployed as part of Task 4.5.

D4.15 Report on integrating API into GGP

Task 4.5 Social policy APIs for social surveys in the Social Sciences and Humanities Open Cloud project aims to demonstrate the application of social policy APIs in a social sciences survey infrastructure. A proof of concept was prepared by the Generations and Gender Programme and the WageIndicator Survey in the form of an experiment in which a Social Policy Module was integrated in the Dutch WageIndicator Survey. The experiment can be used as a template for future applications which aim to link social policy information with information of individuals or households.

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.
