SSH Open Marketplace for Social Sciences and Humanities Workshop
dr. Edward J. Gray
About workshop: The SSH Open Marketplace is a portal that aggregates and contextualises resources from the social sciences and humanities research communities. Tools, services, learning materials, databases, publications and workflows are available to users.
The SSH Open Marketplace is the result of the Horizon 2020 funded SSHOC project and is maintained by three ERICs: DARIAH, CLARIN and CESSDA. The Marketplace is a priority for the DARIAH network, as it publishes national contributions from DARIAH members. The Marketplace API also feeds the DARIAH Tools and Services Catalogue. Together, the two platforms can therefore be used to valorise the tools and services made available to the DARIAH community.
The workshop is designed in two parts. In the initial part we will introduce what the Open Marketplace is and how it is used. In the second part, participants will be invited to write and document a scenario of their research work based on the tools and research methods they use in their daily work and upload these scenarios to the Marketplace.
