Role & Function

In accordance with our project philosophy to directly and actively involve the future user community in the development and design process, the TRIPLE Advisory Board (TAB) provides strategic direction and support during the duration of the project (2019-2023). The focus of our work with the TAB is on specific technical issues such as the use of the MORESS categories to classify SSH disciplines, the TRIPLE data model and the thesaurus.

The TAB is meant to be a flexible, dynamic and rather informal group of experts that works in an open, agile format. The contributions happen upon request from the TRIPLE Work Package Leaders Team and depend on the members’ availability and specific expertise with regard to their discipline and/or language(s). In this regard, the role of the TAB is a bit different from traditional advisory or scientific committees. Their work involves, for instance, answering specific questions via email, taking part in short surveys or attending (online) meetings to discuss and decide on current issues.

The TAB’s core mission is to support the technical development of the discovery platform GoTriple with its innovative services by providing advice and answers to specific technical questions any TRIPLE work package may have.

The TAB members also use opportunities to spread the word about TRIPLE within their own scientific and/or regional communities in order to find potential beta testers of the future platform GoTriple to gather their feedback on the design, the functionalities, usability aspects and their overall user experience. Upon completion of the project, the TAB member may also act as mentors for other users.

TRIPLE Advisory Board


At the end of October 2020, we had issued a call for European experts from the social sciences and humanities (SSH) who would like to join the newly established TRIPLE Advisory Board (TAB). The TRIPLE Advisory Board (TAB) is currently comprised of twelve members working in seven different European countries (Spain, Italy, France, Portugal, Netherlands, Cyprus, Austria). Their disciplinary backgrounds include philosophy, history and art history, information science, archaeology, philology, linguistics, sociology, digital humanities.
