European platform invites the SSH community to co-design workshops

GOTRIPLE will provide a single access point for open resources, connection to projects, innovative tools and funding in the SSH

Funded by Horizon 2020 and one of the services of the OPERAS infrastructure, the TRIPLE project - Transforming Research through Innovative Practices for Linked Interdisciplinary Exploration - is promoting workshops for the co-design of its discovery platform with potential users. The idea is to actively involve the community in the design of the GOTRIPLE platform, which is expected to be fully functional by 2023.

The platform, based on the Isidore search engine, developed by the French National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS), will provide a single access point for users (researchers, institutions such as universities and libraries, but also enterprises, consultancies, media and service providers) to many activities and services. These will be: allowing the discovery and reuse of open resources from the Social Sciences and Humanities (SSH), such as research and publication data that are currently dispersed in local repositories; to find and to connect with other researchers and projects across disciplines and language boundaries; to make use of innovative tools to support research (for example, visualization, annotation, recommendation and trust-building systems; and to discover new ways of funding research (e.g., crowdfunding).

The sessions will take place between the end of March and the beginning of June, and each one will focus on a specific functionality or page of the platform. The workshops will take place remotely - using interfaces like Zoom, Teams or Google Meet - and will last between two and three hours.

Among the planned sessions there are:

- Public User Profiles. Each registered user on GOTRIPLE will have a public profile, where all relevant information will be available to other users. Participation in this workshop will help in the development of the page, when participants will define what is important to be shown and the best way to show the relevant information.

- "MyGOTRIPLE" annotation tool. Participants in this workshop will help with the design of the platform's annotation tool, indicating what is important when commenting and highlighting textual content.

- Private User Dashboard. Participants in this workshop will help defining what is important to display and how to display all the relevant information.

- GOTRIPLE Dashboard. Dedicated to the GOTRIPLE general Dashboard, this workshop aims to understand how the general page can be useful for users and what should be displayed on it.

- Disciplines Dashboard. The wide range of Social Sciences and Humanities disciplines are at the heart of the user experience at GOTRIPLE; this dashboard is where they will be available. Workshop participants will help GOTRIPLE team to understand the importance of the disciplines and how to present them on the page.

- Trust Building System (TBS) GOTRIPLE. TBS will be used to detect reliable partners for SSH researchers. The TBS can be applied to a vast array of applications such as interdisciplinary collaboration, funding opportunities and partnerships, helping to provide a win-win situation for all stakeholders within and outside the SSH community. A TBS prototype is ready to be tested and improved with input from participants. The participant in this co-design process need to have a real request to solve, and to believe that his/her private network of trusted peers could help them.

To register for one or more workshops: send an email to the workshop organiser. The contact details, as well as the details of the sessions, are available on this page.

The project lasts 42 months and its ultimate goal is to integrate the GOTRIPLE discovery solution, which will be fully operational in 2023, to the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) marketplace.

A prototype of the platform will be launched in the fall of 2021.
