The Opening Scholarly Communication in Social Sciences project OSCOSS

Mayr, Philipp / Lange, Christoph


This paper outlines the main ideas and objectives of the DFG-funded project “Opening Scholarly Communication in the Social Sciences” (OSCOSS). The paper makes up with a problem statement discussing the traditional scholarly publication process and the shortcomings of the portable document format (PDF) as publication format. In the following, the main use cases of the project are introduced: readers, authors and reviewers of scientific publications. The main part of the paper is describing the project objectives and the architecture of the intended project software infrastructure. Project objectives are: 1. establishing electronic papers as the focal points of scholarly communication, 2. integrating social science research data and the paper in a closer way, 3. keep up the high layout and formatting standards and 4. provide publishers with a technical infrastructure.
