Harvesten der SSOAR-Metadaten über OAI-PMH-Schnittstelle möglich


From the very beginning, our aim has been to develop SSOAR in cooperation with institutions, academic committees, journals, publishers, research groups and individuals. Concrete agreements relate to making documents available, to quality assurance and editing. The purpose of such cooperation is to ensure the widest possible dissemination of scientific findings, thus increasing their impact.

  • Cooperation with the Special Subject Collection Social Sciences, USB Cologne  

SSOAR cooperates with the Special Subject Collection Social Sciences at the University and City Library of Cologne. The Special Subject Collection (SSG) Social Sciences at the Cologne USB has the mission to collect, archive, index and provide access to scientific literature (in all its forms) relevant to the social sciences as thoroughly as possible. Thanks to the cooperation with the Cologne USB, SSOAR users can - amongst others - currently access over 2.000 social science full texts which were indexed for the search by the Cologne USB (SSG Social Sciences). In addition, Cologne USB obtained the necessary mirroring rights for SSOAR mirroring.

  • Cooperation with the German Family Panel (pairfam)

The 2008-launched German Family Panel pairfam (“Panel Analysis of Intimate Relationships and Family Dynamics”) is a multi-disciplinary, longitudinal study for researching partnership and family dynamics in Germany. The annually collected survey data from a nationwide random sample of more than 12,000 persons of the three birth cohorts 1971-73, 1981-83, 1991-93 and their partners, parents and children offers unique opportunities for the analysis of partner and generational relationships as they develop over the course of multiple life phases. The focus of pairfam is on the complex processes of partnership formation and development, starting and expanding a family, parenting and child development, and intergenerational relationships. Particular attention is paid to the social embeddedness of these processes. In addition, the comprehensive survey also touches on various issues from other life domains. The German Family Panel is a cooperative effort linking the University of Bremen, the Chemnitz University of Technology, the Friedrich Schiller University of Jena, the University of Cologne, and the Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich. Since 2010, pairfam has been funded as long-term project by the German Research Foundation (DFG). It is accredited as a research data center by the German Data Forum (RatSWD).
