European project TRIPLE delivers its final output: the GoTriple platform
Tue 14 Mar 2023

The main output of the TRIPLE project that the EU has funded via the Horizon 2020 programme for 3 years is GoTriple, a multilingual discovery platform for the Social Sciences and Humanities.

GoTriple is part of the OPERAS service portfolio and will live on beyond the project’s lifespan which ends in March 2023.

Since 2019, 22 partners from 15 countries have worked on developing the multilingual discovery service GoTriple which covers 11 languages (German, French, Slovenian, Ukrainian, Spanish, Portuguese, Croatian, Polish, English, Italian, Greek) and 27 disciplines from the Social Sciences and Humanities. The platform is part of the OPERAS service portfolio and, through its innovative features, offers opportunities for discovery and collaboration alike: a recommender system suggests publications, authors and projects based on former search queries, and the Trust Building System enables users to connect their social circles, the scientific crowdfunding service supports researchers develop communication strategies and gain initial funding for their projects. Via Pundit, an online annotation tool, users can annotate publications online and share their annotations with other users. Users can explore and analyze their search results with two visualization options (Streamgraph and Knowledge Map).

To better enable the research community to connect with one another, GoTriple is dedicated to supporting building academic networks, fostering communities of practice and strengthening the connection between society and research. After registering on the platform, GoTriple users are able to display their expertise as well as the projects they are involved in and contact each other via an integrated chat system.

Over the course of the project, several other results have been achieved that promise to be of use to the Open Science community. This includes the multilingual vocabulary that has been developed for the platform and is based on the Library of Congress Subject Headings (LCSH), the TRIPLE Training Toolkit, Deliverables and scientific articles published by members of the consortium.
