Survey of current reproducibility practices in linguistics journals, 2003-2012 Report uri icon


  • This is a survey of current practices in linguistics journals with regard to the two parameters for transparency that we deem important to reproducibility in linguistics publications: transparency about methods used in creating, collecting, and analyzing source data, and transparency about source data for linguistic research. We also discuss transparency in the citation of individual examples and transparency with regard to the storage and archiving of linguistic data. The aim of this study is to encourage discussion, although the results will probably come as no surprise. If we are to gain greater clarity of the extent to which the research community values reproducibility in linguistics, we need to have a deeper understanding of the barriers that are present in current practice.
