Talking points

Changing the way linguistics approaches the sharing and citing of primary data means changing traditional thinking about the role of data in research and their scholarly value. Here are FAQs and talking points for conveying a helpful and hopeful message to colleagues.

Position statement

“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.” (p. 1-2)
