Hello Data Citation WG,
Please note the upcoming activities around data citation in the recently-endorsed RDA Linguistics Data IG. Would there be a good representative from your group to join the Linguistics IG citation conversations?
Please let me know if I can be of any assistance. Many thanks for all you do!

Subject: [linguistics_data] New Publication - Reproducible research in linguistics: A position statement on data citation and attribution in our field
Dear LDIG Members,
Happy new year to all! We have a few pieces of LDIG-related news to share.
First, we would like to draw your attention to a new publication that was part of the founding motivation for setting up the Linguistics Data Interest group.
Reproducible research in linguistics: A position statement on data citation and attribution in our field
The abstract is below. The article is Open Access, so please share with your networks and cite in your data training and publications.
This paper is a position statement on reproducible research in linguistics, including data citation and attribution, that represents the collective views of some 41 colleagues. Reproducibility can play a key role in increasing verification and accountability in linguistic research, and is a hallmark of social science research that is currently under-represented in our field. We believe that we need to take time as a discipline to clearly art! iculate our expectations for how linguistic data are managed, cited, and maintained for long-term access.
Share and Endorse the Austin Principles
If you haven't had the chance, please share the Austin Principles of ! Data Citation with your research groups, students, publications and archives (www.linguisticsdatacitation.org) and endorse the principles (http://site.uit.no/linguisticsdatacitation/endorse/)
LDIG in 2018
The Linguistics Data Interest Group will spend 2018 promoting the Austin Principles and helping to drive the conversation about the role of data in linguistics. We plan to attend both RDA Plenaries (https://www.rd-alliance.org/plenaries) and will use the opportunity to start working towards data citation formats. This will work best if you bring your colleagues, publishers and grants bodies into the conversation. If you have your own linguistics data ! aims, the group can also help you work with the right people on them.
Many thanks for your continued participation in LDIG.
All the best,
