This web page presents the Austin Principles of Data Citation in Linguistics (Version 1.0), a set of guidelines that enable linguists to make informed decisions regarding the accessibility and transparency of their research data. The principles and their accompanying web site aim to meet the needs of researchers and students, as well as data managers, editors and publishers, interested in complying with current trends and requirements regarding research data management.


This web page is developed and maintained by the Research Data Alliance (RDA) Linguistics Data Interest Group (LDIG), co-chaired by Helene N. Andreassen (UiT The Arctic University of Norway), Andrea Berez-Kroeker (University of Hawai’i at Manoa) and Lauren Gawne (La Trobe University).

LDIG plans to identify, prioritize, and get to work on data challenges across the Linguistics domain; data at all linguistic levels and for all of the world’s languages. Objectives include, but are not limited to, the development of a discipline-wide adoption of common standards for data citation and attribution, and improvement of research data management training in the discipline.

This interest group is aligned with the RDA mission to improve open sharing of data through forming transparent discipline-specific data citation and attribution conventions to be adopted by the international research community.
