Subject: RSS (38)  From: Eliza Papaki Subject: TRIPLE User Research Survey (62) -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Date: 2020-05-07 13:47:43+00:00 From: Francois Lachance Subject: RSS Willard Appealing to the collective knowledge of Humanist to sort out how to read RSS (Real Simple Syndication) feeds. I have noticed that many digital humanist sites and projects offer Twitter, Facebook and Instagram feeds. Some continue to offer RSS (which to me seems to lie outside the proprietary and surveillance channels of the big three). Wikipedia ( Accessed May 7, 2020 ) informs me that browser support has declined: [quote] Several major sites such as Facebook and Twitter previously offered RSS feeds but have reduced or removed support. Additionally, widely used readers such as Shiira, FeedDemon, and Google Reader have been discontinued having cited declining popularity in RSS. RSS support was removed in OS X Mountain Lion's versions of Mail and Safari, although the features were partially restored in Safari 8. Mozilla removed RSS support from Mozilla Firefox version 64.0, joining Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge which do not include RSS support, thus leaving Internet Explorer as the last major browser to include RSS support by default. [/quote] I am inquiring if folks have experience with RSS plugins for browsers and have any recommendations?

Click here to access the Survey: https://surveys.ekt.gr/index.php?r=survey/index&sid=819254&lang=en The questionnaire is specifically targeted at researchers and academics from the Social Sciences and Humanities (SSH) at any stage of their careers - from Master student to full professor - who are currently working in a European country. The TRIPLE project was launched on 7 October 2019. It will be one of the dedicated services of OPERAS (https://operas.hypotheses.org), the Research Infrastructure supporting open scholarly communication in the Social Sciences and Humanities in the European Research Area (https://ec.europa.eu/info/research-and-innovation/strategy/era_en). At the heart of the project is the development of the TRIPLE platform, an innovative multilingual and multicultural discovery solution. The results of the User Research Survey, which will be published in the "Report on User Needs" in November 2020, will help us tailor the services and tools of the TRIPLE platform to the needs of the SSH community. We are therefore curious to find out what exactly you need and prefer as a potential future user of the TRIPLE platform. In particular, we would like to know more your work practices relating to digital technologies. This includes information on your - use of tools for discovery used to explore, find, access and reuse material such as literature, data, projects, researchers' profiles etc. that they would need for their own research work - use of tools for the management and retrieval of material - use of tools for conducting research (including data collection and annotation) - use of tools for networking with colleagues or other stakeholders - digital literacy and general discovery practices - hardware devices used in the research cycle The survey is open until 30 June 2020. It is in English, and it should not take more than 10 to 15 minutes to answer the 21 questions. Click here to access the Survey: https://surveys.ekt.gr/index.php?r=survey/index&sid=819254&lang=en Your data will be collected and stored in a fully anonymised form and will only be accessible to the project research team. You can find more information on how your data will be handled in the consent form on the second page of the Survey. Should you encounter any technical difficulties, or should you require further information about the Survey, please contact Dr Stefano De Paoli ( email@example.com) or Dr Paula Forbes (firstname.lastname@example.org). We are looking forward to your input! Thank you for your cooperation and time!
