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.
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.
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.
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”.
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.
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’).
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 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.
