What is GoTriple?
GoTriple is an innovative multilingual discovery platform for the social sciences and humanities (SSH). It provides a single access point for discovering and reusing research artefacts that are relevant to the wide variety of disciplines under the umbrella domain of SSH: Publications and research data, project descriptions and researcher profiles are automatically imported from aggregators and source providers, semantically enriched and linked in GoTriple.
The platform enables users to:
- discover and reuse open scholarly SSH resources in nine European languages (Croatian, English, French, German, Greek, Italian, Polish, Portuguese, Spanish), which are currently scattered across local and discipline-specific repositories;
- find and connect with other researchers and projects across disciplinary, cultural and language boundaries;
- make use of innovative tools and services to support research, visualisation of search results, web annotation, personalised recommendations and social networking;
- explore new ways of funding research such as crowdfunding.

GoTriple is developed as part of TRIPLE, a project financed under the Horizon 2020 Framework Programme with approx. 5.6 million Euros for a duration of 42 months (2019–2023). It will be the Discovery Service of OPERAS, the Research Infrastructure supporting open scholarly communication in the social sciences and humanities in the European Research Area, and it is designed to be integrated into and thus to enrich the services of the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) for the SSH communities.
What to expect in this Beta Release?
With already more than 6 million items ingested (currently publications), the first prototype of the GoTriple platform is now ready for exploration!
GoTriple currently allows multilingual searches, which means that you can find publications in a specific language by using keywords in one of the nine languages supported by the platform.
Other available features in the Beta Release are: searching for publications and authors, filtering the results by type of publication author, year and discipline, as well as accessing the original page of the document to download available items.
You can also get an early glimpse of some of the innovative services of the platform, namely:
- the Visual Discovery System, which enables you to get an instant overview of your search results and to analyse research trends,
- a first version of the Recommender System, which currently provides users with personalised recommendations on publications related to their search queries.
How can I get involved?
GoTriple will be open for usability testing before the end of the year, and all members of the SSH community will then be warmly invited to review the platform and provide feedback.
If you would like to be informed about opportunities to become a GoTriple tester, join the TRIPLE User Community and subscribe to the TRIPLE Community Mailing List.
What are the next steps?
The Beta+ Release, expected to be launched in March 2022, will have a more stable front and back end, allowing searches for datasets, research projects and researcher profiles on top of publications. GoTriple will also offer more features related to the innovative services of the platform, such as the Annotation System, the Trust Building System and the Crowdfunding Platform.
In the coming months, we will be publishing further updates on the platform specification, the plans for content ingestion and the innovative services. Stay tuned!
