WP7: Creating the SSH Open Marketplace

D7.5 Marketplace - Governance

This report aims at describing the governance model for the SSH Open Marketplace, especially in the perspective of its sustainability. A well-thought governance model is required to sustain the various components of this SSH discovery portal: from its technical development and ongoing future maintenance (aggregation and ingestion pipelines, integration of new resources, curation, and editorial components) to its more strategic design through the definition of governing bodies and roles.

D7.6 SSHOC Resources for Marketplace content description

This document presents the results of a survey on existing vocabularies in Social Sciences and Humanities (SSH) conducted by Task (T) 7.4 of the Social Sciences and Humanities Open Cloud (SSHOC) project funded by the European Commission under Grant #823782. T7.4 is part of WP7, in charge of creating the SSH Open Marketplace: a discovery portal crafted for the SSH research community, offering contextualised solutions to diverse research enquiries (e.g., tools or services) at every step of a researcher’s data life cycle.

MS42 Marketplace – alpha release

This document reports on the achievement of SSHOC Milestone 42, the alpha release of the SSH Open Marketplace. It explains the role of the first release in the development process of the application as well as the community efforts deployed to ensure the uptake of the SSH Open Marketplace by SSH research communities.

MS43 -Marketplace - beta release

Three different releases of the SSH Open Marketplace are planned during the SSHOC project. The three corresponding milestones (MS42, 43 and 44) ensure the progress and the coherence of the various tasks contributing to the creation of the SSH Open Marketplace. MS 43 “Marketplace - beta release” is the second one and is described as following in SSHOC Grant Agreement: “Marketplace implementing core functionality, deployed in an operational environment, populated with an extended set of data, open to the whole community to use and participate”.

WP8: Governance/ Sustainability/ Quality Assurance

D8.1 Governance and Sustainability Roadmap

This deliverable D8.1 addresses (i) the organisational structure needed to safeguard the availability, quality and maintenance of the results after the SSHOC project, (ii) the conditions for financial sustainability of the exploitable results and (iii) the actions needed to implement and sustain the envisaged organisational structure for the post-project collaboration and sustainability.

D8.2 Certification plan for SSHOC repositories


The distributed character of the data infrastructures in use by members of the SSHOC community means that an approach to assessing their trustworthiness and the quality of their data repositories needs to be developed. 

D8.3 Trustworthy Digital Repository status update and certification solutions for SSHOC repositories

Research data should be managed, curated, stored and shared in a way that lives up to the expectations regarding trustworthiness and quality, provides sustainability and preserves the investments. The Trustworthy Digital Repository standards which have emerged from the Open Archival Information System (OAIS) reference model offer a certification solution for repositories. CoreTrustSeal (CTS) offers baseline certification and supports the concept of outsourcing.

D8.4 Report on ethical and legal issues and implications for EOSC

Background: The main purpose of SSHOC is to create the social sciences and humanities area of the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC), thereby facilitating access to flexible, scalable research data and related services streamlined to the precise needs of the Social Science and Humanities (hereinafter SSH) community [1, 2]. The ambition of EOSC is to develop a ‘web of FAIR data and services’ for science in Europe, by building on existing research infrastructure and services supported by the EC, Member States and research communities.

WP9: Data Communities

D9.10 User community feedback and usage report

This report constitutes SSHOC Deliverable 9.10, which describes the first stage of testing of the Knowledge Graph (KG) for Electoral Studies that constituted Deliverable D9.9 (‘Delivery of user-validated Knowledge Graph, and Election Studies Analytics dashboard’).

SSHOC D9.1 Challenges that user communities face when attempting to contribute to SSHOC

This report identifies obstacles that different kinds of user- and data-communities encounter in relation to engaging with, using and contributing to the evolving EOSC/SSHOC infrastructure.
