The SSHOC cluster project (Social Sciences and Humanities Open Cloud) is a contribution to the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC). It particularly addresses the requirements of the Social Sciences and Humanities (SSH) research community. An important goal of the project is to deliver the SSH Open Marketplace (https://sshopencloud.eu/ssh-open-marketplace) as discovery portal and comprehensive information hub for the SSH research community comprising tools, services, training materials and other resources. Our involvement in the cluster project helps DARIAH communities to build one of the four pillars of the DARIAH Strategic Plan 2019–2026 by “building the Marketplace as a humanist-friendly component of the European Open Science Cloud”.
Since the beginning of the SSHOC project (in January 2019), important steps have been achieved, like the definition of the system specification for the SSH Open Marketplace, and community needs were central concerns in this process. SSHOC follows an agile development approach with user feedback from the very beginning and feedback loops in-between. An alpha release of the portal was released in June 2020 and will be followed by the beta release of a fully-functional SSH Open Marketplace in December 2020. The operational version of the portal will be launched in December 2021.
This DARIAH public demonstration is one in a series of events implementing a participatory-design approach and aims at encouraging and enabling valuable feedback for the refinement of the concept and development of the SSH Open Marketplace. The audience of the DARIAH Annual Event – humanities scholars and/or DARIAH Working Group members, NCCs, members of DARIAH Scientific Board – is a perfect multiplier for us to receive feedback from the Arts & Humanities research community at large.
