Launch of the Final Version


SSH Open Marketplace Timeline - SSHOC


The final version of the SSH Open Marketplace is now live and users are warmly invited to check in and take a look around!

Better still, contribute your own tools and know-how and help us enrich and develop the final product! 

We’ve followed an agile methodology to this point and we’re still convinced that when it comes to further refining and expanding the SSH Open Marketplace, our users know best.

To get involved:

SSH Open Marketplace Explained

  • The SSH Open Marketplace is one of the key services to be developed by the SSHOC project.
  • The SSH Open Marketplace is a sustainable contribution to the social sciences and humanities area of the EOSC.
  • To support SSH researchers at every step of the research data lifecycle, the SSH Open Marketplace pools and harmonises their key:
    • tools and services
    • datasets
    • training materials
    • workflows and publications


..... and makes them available in a discovery portal as “contextualised solutions” to research problems.  

Contextualised Solutions to Research Problems

Contextualised solutions are responses to user queries which present the best information available and then go a step further to broaden the user’s perspective.

For instance, a researcher looking for a textual analysis tool will find not only a very comprehensive treatment of the most pertinent tools in current use, but also associated resources such as user guides, reviews of the tools by fellow researchers, and perhaps even a case study.on how to use such tools.
