Linguistics Data Interest Group online asynchronous ‘meeting’

30 Aug 2017
Groups audience: 

Dear RDA LDIG members,
We are holding our first online asynchronous group ‘meeting’ of the Linguistics Data Interest Group (LDIG) from today until the 6th of September. We hope to hold these meetings 2-4 times a year, as a way for you to help shape the direction of the group and its work, and to ensure the experiences of a wide range of linguists are reflected in the LDIG outputs. The meeting document is an editable online Google document, and has four aims:
1. Get feedback on the Austin Principles of Data Citation
2. Find specific examples with which to illustrate the Austin Principles
3. Get feedback on other issues and ideas to take to the RDA’s 10th Plenary in September
4. Keep LDIG members up to date on what we are working on
There are three possible ways to participate:
1. Enter text or add a comment to the meeting document. Make sure you include your name and list yourself as a meeting participant (with your email address) at the end of the document.
2. Email feedback to Lauren Gawne (***@***.***), which will be incorporated into the final version (anonymously if requested).
3. Add your feedback in this Google Form, which asks the same questions as the meeting document. Your feedback will be incorporated into the final version (anonymously if requested).
Please encourage your colleagues to join the LDIG by joining the RDA (it’s free!). If you are able to attend the RDA event in Montreal later in September, we hope to see you there. Otherwise, please feel free to attend the 11th RDA plenary event in Berlin in March 2018 as we work towards improving data citation standards within linguistics.
We look forward to seeing your feedback,
Lauren Gawne, Andrea Berez-Kroeker & Helen Andreassen
(LDIG Co-Chairs)

    Dear RDA LDIG members,
    As this first meeting is generating some good conversation, we have decided to keep it open another week. You can add your feedback until the 15th of September - right up until we take it to the RDA 10th Plenary to finalise a version to share with the wider community of linguists.
    There are three possible ways to participate:
    1. Enter text or add a comment to the meeting document. Make sure you include your name and list yourself as a meeting participant (with your email address) at the end of the document.
    2. Email feedback to Lauren Gawne (***@***.***), which will be incorporated into the final version (anonymously if requested).
    3. Add your feedback in this Google Form, which asks the same questions as the meeting document. Your feedback will be incorporated into the final version (anonymously if requested).
    We are looking for the broadest representation of linguistic data that we can, so please take the chance to add your perspective,
    Cheers,
    Lauren Gawne, Andrea L. Berez-Kroeker, and Helene N. Andreassen
