How to create a workflow in the SSH Open Marketplace?

The following workflow helps users understand what a workflow is in the SSH Open Marketplace and how to proceed to create one.

As described in the Marketplace’s guidelines: ”A research workflow is a (potentially complex/non-linear) sequence of steps to describe how to perform a task within the research data lifecycle (comparable to 'recipes' in and 'scenarios' in the Standardization Survival Kit). A workflow can be completed by using diverse tools and resources, connected to each step. As opposed to Training Materials, workflows are a series of steps (which can contain links to other resources) whereas the former are unique resources.”

This specific workflow guides users, step by step, in the creation of their own research scenario. Let's highlight first the three main reasons for which you, as a researcher, want to contribute to the SSH Open Marketplace with a workflow:

  • to make your research project align with the best practices in your community
  • to get peer review and visibility
  • to share a project in another form than the usual blog / article (a new way to disseminate your work).

The SSH Open Marketplace is maintained and will be further developed by three European Research Infrastructures - DARIAH, CLARIN and CESSDA - and their national partners. It was developed as part of the "Social Sciences and Humanities Open Cloud" SSHOC project, European Union's Horizon 2020 project call H2020-INFRAEOSC-04-2018, grant agreement #823782.
