DARIAH-CH workshop “Creating workflows in the SSH Open Marketplace”

Updated: Apr 11


The Social Sciences and Humanities Open Marketplace (SSH Open Marketplace) - - is a discovery portal which pools and contextualises resources for Social Sciences and Humanities research communities: tools, services, training materials, datasets, publications and workflows.

The SSH Open Marketplace showcases solutions and research practices for every step of the research data life cycle. In doing so, it facilitates discoverability and findability of research services and products that are essential to enable sharing and re-use of workflows and methodologies.

Workflows and the DARIAH-CH workshop

Workflows are a specific content type in the SSH Open Marketplace and are defined as

Sequences of steps that one can perform on research data during their lifecycle. Workflows can be achieved by using diverse tools, resources and methods, and the useful resources are connected to each step.” (SSH Open Marketplace 2023).


  • are built, within the SSH Open Marketplace, on use cases that bring into light recommended tools, formats and methods, and are reusable for other researchers.

  • represent “the living memory of what should be the best research practices in a given community

  • are a good way to point to tools and services that researchers are using. This will help others in understanding which digital methods may serve their needs the best

(Barbot and colleagues, 2024, Contextualizing Research Tools & Services through Workflows in the SSH Open Marketplace. Journal of Open Humanities Data)

The DARIAH-CH workshop is thus a great opportunity to help tool and data creators, data management staff and service providers in disseminating their offer and contextualising their resources for the benefit of the arts and humanities communities.
