TROLLing (the Tromsø Repository of Language and Linguistics)

The field of linguistics has taken a quantitative turn in recent years. The majority of conference presentations, articles, and books in our field now involve some kind of quantitative analysis of language data, and results are often measured using statistical methods.

Poljarnyj vestnik acknowledges the need for Slavic linguists to archive their data in  a safe place – and to share the data with their colleagues. Authors of articles for Poljarnyj Vestnik are therefore requested to archive their data and code at TROLLing (the Tromsø Repository of Language and Linguistics).

TROLLing is a professionally maintained, designated website created for this purpose. It promotes open access and is free.
