OPERAS looks for collaboration to build GOTRIPLE, a unique social sciences and humanities database

06 July 2021

OPERAS, the research infrastructure supporting open scholarly communication in the social sciences and humanities (SSH) in the European Research Area, is working to develop a full catalogue of services via its platform GOTRIPLE to efficiently address the scholarly communication needs of European researchers in the field of SSH. OPERAS asks the EUA network to identify repositories hosted by universities, libraries or other networks in Europe, and share them with Suzanne Dumouchel or Arnaud Gingold.

GOTRIPLE is built within the framework of the TRIPLE project, funded under H2020 program (infraeosc-02-2019), as several added values that makes it completely useful and needed by the SSH community:

  • It is a multilingual service: 9 languages (French, Spanish, English, German, Greek, Portuguese, Croatian, Italian, Polish) are part of the platform and the vocabularies of the 27 SSH disciplines have all been aligned in each language (HALSHS - MORESS.xlsx).
  • It is a dedicated SSH service, that means the data model is especially adapted to the SSH and that the search is made on SSH concepts.
  • It links the results between data (& publications), researchers projects and researchers profiles in order to build a very strong picture of the topic in Europe.
  • It is plugged to several innovative services (visualisations, annotations, recommendation, crowdfunding service, etc.) that increase the reuse of the data and resources.

OPERAS targets mainly repositories of data, publications, researchers’ profiles and research projects with the SSH focus but if you have generic repositories where we can use only SSH resources, it can be used as well.
