LSA Symposium & Panel Discussion

Data Citation and Attribution for Reproducible Research in Linguistics

Thursday, January 5, 2017, 4:00-5:30 PM (Brazos Room, JW Marriott, Austin)

The notion of reproducible research has received considerable attention in recent years from physical scientists, life scientists, social and behavioral scientists, and computational scientists. Reproducible research aims to provide scientific accountability by facilitating access for other researchers to the data upon which research conclusions are based. This session grows out of our current NSF project, funded under grant number SMA-1447886, to develop standards for data citation and attribution in linguistics at the grassroots level, with the ultimate aim of creating a discipline-wide culture of reproducible research. Session participants have all been directly involved in the project, which began in 2015. The session will bring the conversation to the broader membership of the LSA for the first time, and will highlight both issues of wider concern and more detailed topics. Please note that discussion is our primary objective, and the panel discussion format as well as the poster session will encourage participation from the LSA membership more generally. A poster session will follow on Friday morning. [view extended abstract] Discussant: Richard Meier (University of Texas at Austin)
