University of Coimbra/OPERAS
The University of Coimbra (UC) is part of the Executive Assembly of the OPERAS Consortium. OPERAS is the European research infrastructure for the development of open scholarly communication in the Social Sciences and Humanities.
UC is also part of CO-OPERASS IN - an active GO FAIR implementation network. CO-OPERASS IN aims to build a bridge between SSH (Social Sciences and Humanities) data and EOSC (European Open Science Cloud), extending the concept of "research data" to include all types of digital research outputs linked to scholarly communication that, in the SSH, are part of the research process. The aim is to contribute to a better integration of SSH research objects in the EOSC.
UC in the editorial team of OpenMethods: OpenMethods - Highlighting digital humanities methods and tools, is a new DARIAH initiative created by the Humanities at Scale project in cooperation with OPERAS. Humanities at Scale is a DARIAH ERIC (Digital Research Infrastructure for Arts and Humanities) H2020 project.
UC leads OPERAS Special Interest Group - Multilingualism
The University of Coimbra leads the Special Interest Group (SIG) of the OPERAS infrastructure on the topic of Multilingualism.
The group works on the topics of translation, multilingual discovery tools and the importance of national languages. Currently, the Multilingualism SIG is collaborating with the TRIPLE project on the development of the GoTriple platform, an Open Access discovery platform for the Social Sciences and Humanities. GoTriple will be a multilingual discovery tool in 11 languages, with five innovative services for research and the possibility of collaboration with different researcher profiles on the European scale.
The Special Interest Group is also preparing for the OPERAS-Plus project, in which it will develop a design study for a translation service.
The UC-led group has been publishing white papers on the topic of multilingualism since 2018. Currently, the most recent versions of the SIGs' white papers are in a Living Book format, allowing for comments and the continuous updating and development of these papers.
