Data management

Fifty model survey questions, each with TWO foreign language versions, produced in a pilot study comparing Human-Aided Machine Translation and human translation methodologies.

Type:
Dataset
Service Catalogue Category:
Datasets

An open-access repository of survey questions aligned at the sentence level and to be transformed into domain-specific corpora to facilitate natural language processing, 

These domain-specific corpora will be made accessible to other users in Computer Assisted Translation (CAT) format. Based on this experience, general guidelines for incorporating survey specific parallel corpora into MT systems will be produced.

Type:
Dataset
Service Catalogue Category:
Datasets

Audio data in the form of voice recorded interviews from the Generations and Gender Survey, processed and analyzed by CLARIN using automatic speech recognition, speaker attribution, part-of-speech-tagging, named entity labelling, and other NLP tools.

Type:
Dataset
Service Catalogue Category:
Datasets

A package of training resources and exercises bundled together with guidelines for setting up a training intervention, and a standard evaluation form - for use at Train-the-Trainer bootcamps and in building cross-disciplinary cooperation within a shared framework. 

Type:
Training
Service Catalogue Category:
Training & support

A European network of expert trainers in social sciences & humanities data management working together to increase the trainer pool, to share and optimise learning resources, and to build expertise. CTA Link to training page

Processing & analysis

An innovative web service for the reality-based 3D annotation and large-scale collaborative documentation of heritage artefacts. For this service, the existing Aïoli platform 

will be significantly upgraded in terms of technical robustness, the collaboration framework provided, the management of controlled vocabularies, and compatibility with CIDOC-CRM. A facility for  visualising hypothetical reconstructions of archaeological sites will also be added.

Type:
Tool
Service Catalogue Category:
Data management

Based on a proof of concept for the cross-pollination of information between research infrastructures, the guidelines under development will describe how to design interview questionnaires to facilitate the capture of digital language data and its integration into the traditional data collection process.

Type:
Demonstrator
Service Catalogue Category:
Data management

A web application similar to CRONOS which, paired with a survey platform, will enable the centralised management of a cross-national sample for academic studies.

Type:
Tool
Service Catalogue Category:
Data management

A registry of (meta)data conversion services featuring the most relevant SSH (meta)data formats and encompassing links to services, format recommendations for increasing interoperability, software recommendations, and a software library. Selected conversion tools will be created where necessary.

Type:
Service Catalogue Category:
Data management

Based on the already functional CLARIN VCR, the SSHOC VCR service will enable researchers to create integrated, coherent sets of links to digital objects. These virtual collections will provide persistent identifiers and federated login. 

The collection metadata is openly available and accessible via the Virtual Language Observatory.

Type:
Software
Service Catalogue Category:
Data management

An extension of the current CLARIN Language Resource Switchboard, the SSHOC Switchboard will match language resources and tools to data types, automatically guiding researchers to the appropriate language analysis application, and enabling the publication, sharing and reuse of the resulting data via B2SHARE.

Type:
Software
Service Catalogue Category:
Data management

Emerging from use-case studies, an evaluation of existing platforms, and a pilot in which secure, safe-room remote desktop connections will be established and tested between partners, the specifications will include Data Use Agreements  and a schema for assessing disclosure risk in data.

Type:
Demonstrator
Service Catalogue Category:
Sharing & discovery

Recommendations for a GDPR Code of Conduct for the social sciences and humanities.

Type:
Framework
Service Catalogue Category:
Sharing & discovery

The repository will be built upon the community-driven open source Dataverse software platform. Its modular design facilitates integration with other data services such as DataCite or ROpenScience,  allows for distributed file storage, and supports the development of additional functionality and services.

Type:
Framework
Service Catalogue Category:
Sharing & discovery

This API will integrate a policy imputation algorithm into social surveys, which covers around 20 indicators including family policy, employment, labour markets, and pensions.

The API will be usable by all European survey infrastructures and the wider research community.

Type:
Demonstrator
Service Catalogue Category:
Sharing & discovery

Guidelines and software will be produced showing how to integrate Computer Assisted Translation (CAT) functionality into the Translation Management Tool (TMT) by connecting the two systems.

Type:
Software
Service Catalogue Category:
