TROLLing User and Usage Statistics (November 2017)

However, as of today the archive software does not provide any aggregated statistics for the entire TROLLing archive. We have pulled out this kind of statistics manually. Here are some overall numbers:

As of November 18 2017, there are 60 published datasets containing 560 files in TROLLing, and there has been a total of 3 503 downloads of entire datasets or single files in the TROLLing archive. At average, this means that each dataset has been downloaded 58 times.  The most frequently requested dataset has been downloaded 329 times.

The data in TROLLing cover a wide range of fields within linguistics, such as phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, and lexicon, studied from different perspectives (synchronic, diachronic, acquisition, language technology, sociolinguistics).

The types of data include tables, charts, audio, video, scripts, and experimental methods.

Laura A. Janda has been nominated for SPARC Europe’s Open Data Champion.

Laura is a professor of Russian Linguistics at UiT The Arctic University of Norway. In 2013, she took the initiative to develop The Tromsø Repository of Language and Linguistics (TROLLing), an international archive for sharing linguistic data and statistical code. TROLLing, launched in June 2014, was developed – and is run – through a collaboration between the linguistics community and the UiT University Library. Laura tirelessly promotes open access to research data by presenting the advantages of TROLLing at numerous conferences and workshops, and by urging editors of scientific journals and other stakeholders to make data sharing a part of their policy. For more information about Laura, see here homepage. For more information about TROLLing, see the TROLLing homepage, and the About section on this blog.

As part of the nomination for SPARC Europe’s Open Data Champion, we have interviewed Laura about open data in linguistics. The interview is available on YouTube, and you may also read a transcribed version here:
