Announcing a free service for the archiving of linguistic data and statistical
code at http://opendata.uit.no/: the Tromsø Repository of Language and
Linguistics.

Many linguists are now publishing articles based upon data analysis, creating
a need to safeguard the corresponding data and statistical code and make it
available to colleagues and to the linguistic community at large. 

The Tromsø Repository of Language and Linguistics, also known as “TROLLing”,
is a free professional service. 

TROLLing:
-is an international archive of linguistic data and statistical code;
-shares the platform of the Harvard Dataverse;
-is compliant with CLARIN (Common Language Resources and Technology
Infrastructure in the EU) standards for digital data storage;
-assigns a permanent URL to each post;
-collects metadata that are searchable through the site;
-is professionally managed by the university library in Tromsø and an
international Steering Committee.

Authors of scholarly works are welcome to deposit their data in TROLLing,
along with citations of their publications. Conversely, authors can reference
their data by citing their TROLLing posts in their publications. 

Instructional videos, a user guide, and the TROLLing banner can be accessed
at:
http://site.uit.no/trolling/getting-started/ 

Here is what researchers are saying about TROLLing:
“In the age of Big Data, the creation of a general repository of datasets and
statistical models for linguistic research is a welcome development. It will
stimulate more research and new analyses.” 
- Maria Polinsky, Director of the Polinsky Language Sciences Lab at Harvard
University.

“TROLLing will revolutionize research in linguistics and drive the discipline
forward: making data publicly available significantly reduces the risk of
bogus results, avoids duplication of efforts and facilitates large-scale
analysis of meticulously annotated datasets.” Dagmar Divjak, University of
Sheffield

“TROLLing is crucial for the field of linguistics as it takes the next steps
towards becoming more empirical. For the first time, it will be possible for
researchers to deposit their primary linguistic data (the foundation for all
research) in a central freely accessible on-line repository so that colleagues
around the world have access to the same data. This invaluable resource will
promote on-going academic exchange on an empirical basis.” - Hans Boas, The
Raymond Dickson, Alton C. Allen, and Dillon Anderson Centennial Professor in
the Department Germanic Studies and the Department of Linguistics at the
University of Texas at Austin, Director of the Linguistics Research Center,
German FrameNet and the Texas German Dialect Project

“TROLLing is exactly what our field needs - with the potential to become the
most useful data resource in linguistics.” - Marit Westergaard, Professor,
Center for Advanced Study of Theoretical Linguistics, UiT The Arctic
University of Norway

“I strongly believe that sharing of data and methods for analysis can play a
key role in the growth of cognitive linguistics. It will be beneficial for the
community of linguists to have a single searchable repository rather than
having data scattered about in many places.” - Laura A. Janda, Professor, UiT
The Arctic University of Norway
