title: What is the SSH Open Marketplace?
---
The Social Sciences and Humanities Open Marketplace, built as part of the [Social Sciences and Humanities Open Cloud project (SSHOC)](https://www.sshopencloud.eu/), is a discovery portal which pools and contextualises resources for Social Sciences and Humanities research communities: tools, services, training materials, datasets and workflows. The Marketplace highlights and showcases solutions and research practices for every step of the SSH research data life cycle.

## Key aspects
- **Curation** – This portal thrives on a curation process that makes it easy to
discover the most appropriate results for each request, so that researchers
can discover the best resources for the digital aspects of their work. The
curation process relies on three components: automatic ingest and update of
data sources; continuous curation of the information by the editorial team and
– most important – contributions from its users, the SSH research community.
- **Community** – The content available in the SSH Open Marketplace and its
contextualisation is the result of collaborative work that is characterised by
a user-centric view. Features that allow contributions, feedback and comments
are implemented – or will be soon – to ensure that the portal mirrors real
research practices.
- **Contextualisation** – The portal puts all items into context: each solution
suggested is linked to other related resources (e.g. a tutorial showing how to
use a tool, a tool used in a workflow, a publication presenting research
results produced using a given service). This contextualisation reinforces
serendipity and helps users to reuse the content of the SSH Open Marketplace.

## A Thematic Contribution to the European Open Science Cloud
### SSHOC & EOSC
SSHOC is one of the activities foreseen under INFRAEOSC 04-2018, which supports
the integration and consolidation of thematic e-infrastructure platforms in
preparation for connecting them to the
[European Open Science Cloud (EOSC)](https://sshopencloud.eu/sshoc-eosc). The
overall objective of the SSHOC project is to realise the Social Sciences and
Humanities part of EOSC.

The overall objective of the SSHOC project is to realise the Social Sciences and Humanities part of EOSC.
The SSH Open Marketplace, the discovery portal and aggregator of the SSHOC
project, is a direct contribution to EOSC. As a domain oriented portal, the SSH
Open Marketplace supplements the existing services offered by EOSC (e.g. EOSC
Catalogue & Marketplace) and aims to facilitate fluid exchange of tools,
services, data and knowledge.

### Lifting the SSH Open Marketplace into the Cloud
The SSH Open Marketplace will be fully integrated in the EOSC landscape, for
example by using EOSC Core services, such as the Federated Identity (AAI)
services or the EOSC helpdesk. A SSHOC task force is working on means to
harmonize views on common themes and foster contact with other European and
international organizations operating in the EOSC environment. Specific
attention will be paid to the integration of the Marketplace with other EOSC
catalogues and/ or marketplace(s). Beyond this task force, the SSH Open
Marketplace is built following recommendations and outputs of
[SSHOC WP3](https://sshopencloud.eu/publications/deliverables?field_wp_tid%5B%5D=14),
led by CLARIN, that aims at "Lifting Technologies and Services into the SSH
Cloud".
