SSH Open Marketplace

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), 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.


KerkoApp is a web application that uses Kerko to provide a user-friendly search and browsing interface for sharing a bibliography managed with the Zotero reference manager. It is built in Python with the Flask framework.

Although this application may be deployed as is on a web server, it is primarily meant to serve as an example on how to integrate Kerko into a Flask application.

Basic configuration options can be set with environment variables, but for more advanced customizations one should consider building a custom application (possibly using KerkoApp as a starting point), and configuring Kerko through its Python interface.


Zotfile is a Zotero plugin to manage your attachments: automatically rename, move, and attach PDFs (or other files) to Zotero items, sync PDFs from your Zotero library to your (mobile) PDF reader (e.g. an iPad, Android tablet, etc.) and extract annotations from PDF files.

OAPEN Open Access Books Toolkit

The OAPEN Open Access Books Toolkit covers specific topics related to open access books. Each article offers a quick and brief introduction to a particular aspect of open access book publishing. The toolkit also serves as a signposting tool: articles include a list of sources referenced, further reading and links to definitions of key terms.

For authors
This toolkit aims to help book authors to better understand open access book publishing and to increase trust in open access books. You will be able to find relevant articles on open access book publishing following the research lifecycle, by browsing frequently asked questions or by searching with keywords.


MiKTeX (pronounced mick-tech) is an up-to-date implementation of TeX/LaTeX and related programs.

TeX is a typesetting system written by Donald Ervin Knuth who says that it is intended for the creation of beautiful books – and especially for books that contain a lot of mathematics.

It is very easy to install MiKTeX on Windows. The MiKTeX Setup Wizard guides you through the installation process. You don’t have to be a computer expert. On a Mac, you can use the Drag’n’Drop installer to install MiKTeX.

A complete set of additions (programs, styles, fonts, …) are available to help you typeset your documents.
