The Tromsø Repository of Language and Linguistics (TROLLing) is designed as an archive of linguistic data and statistical code. The archive is open access, which means that all information is available to to everyone. All postings are accompanied by searchable metadata that identify the researchers, the languages and linguistic phenomena involved, the statistical methods applied, and scholarly publications based on the data (where relevant).
Linguists worldwide are invited to post datasets and statistical models used in linguistic research. The TROLLing Steering Committee is responsible for the scientific content of the archive, whereas the University Library provides quality and relevance control, in addition to user management. The University Library also oversees the technical and legal structure of TROLLing.
TROLLing is built on the Dataverse Network, a SW originated from Harvard University, and developed in coordination with CLARIN (Common Language Resources and Technology Infrastructure, a networked federation of European data repositories).
