The SSHOC League of Data (SSHOC LoD) is a pilot gamification of the CESSDA Data Management Expert Guide® (DMEG) developed within the Social Sciences and Humanities Open Cloud (SSHOC) project. The game supports and motivates researchers to publish their research data by providing guidance for the publishing process.
The game takes a researcher through various concepts, fears and challenges associated with publishing data in an interesting and fun way. The goal is to check the knowledge gained. The game can be used as an addition to the educational process or as a self-assessment tool.
The SSHOC LoD is a pilot version for the CESSDA DMEG chapters on archiving, publishing and protecting data.
