WP2: Communication, Dissemination, and Impact


MS5 SSHOC web platform continuous marketplace integration with SSHOC service offer

As defined in the SSHOC workplan, task 2.3 SSHOC web presence will cover all activities related to the design, development, roll-out and continuous update of the SSHOC web presence. An evolved SSHOC web platform will ensure a service-oriented approach to the SSHOC marketplace developed in WP7 and will act as the main project entry point providing a multi-view of the SSH landscape, according to the main research lines of the ERICs involved, namely Art and Humanities, Social Science, Linguistics.

WP3: Lifting Technologies and Services into the SSH Cloud


D3.1 Report on SSHOC (meta)data interoperability problems

This deliverable is a report on SSHOC metadata and data interoperability problems. It pertains to Task 3.5 under responsibility of CESSDA/FSD. In addition to an inventory of data and metadata interoperability problems, this deliverable includes choices for SSHOC recommended formats and priorities for providing conversion services and planning solutions.

D3.2 Inventory of SSH citation practices, and choice for SSHOC citation formats and implementation planning

This report delivers a comprehensive overview of data citation methodologies in use within the social sciences and humanities, and lays the groundwork for defining a common citation mechanism designed to render SSH data both findable and actionable.

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.

D4.12 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.

D4.16 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. 

D4.18 SSHOC Reference Ontology (beta version)

This report describes the SSHOC Reference Ontology (SSHOCro), a common meta-level schema based on CIDOC CRM, to provide a semantic interoperability framework for the description of the data life cycle used by Social Science and Humanities researchers. The SSHOCro is provided in RDF/S in the file titled “D4.18 SSHOCro_v.1.0_beta.rdf”, which is submitted as an attachment to this report.
