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
*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
articulate 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 (
*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,
New Publication - Reproducible research in linguistics: A position statement on data citation and attribution in our field
