Open science and open access

All of my papers are openly available, and much of my data and code as well. Check out my projects on OSF or my github repositories.

I’m a series editor at Language Science Press, a visionary open access publisher based in Berlin. With N.J. Enfield, I edit the Conceptual Foundations of Language Science book series.

I’m a section editor at Collabra: Psychology, a mission-driven open access journal from the University of California Press. Submit your best work on human interaction and psycholinguistics!

I’m a member of the editorial board of Linguistics, where together with Caroline Rowland and Volker Gast I am shaping the open science strategy of the journal.

Software & web resources

Over the years I have contributed to several software projects and apps.

  • We’ve released SenseTest, a web app for testing cross-modal associations, as part of our National Survey of Language & Synaesthesia.
  • I’ve contributed to LingQuest, a public outreach app that helps players to discover similarities and differences in how languages sound. The game includes data on over 70 languages from around the world.
  • I led the team that designed the widely used Transcription Mode in ELAN, the annotation software developed at MPI Nijmegen (Dingemanse et al. 2012).
  • I developed the website for the L&C Field Manuals and Stimulus Materials, a collection of fieldwork tools used around the world.

Zotero tutorial

A reference manager made by and for scholars, free and open source. I do not supervise students who don’t use a reference manager, and frequently Zotero is the first one they hear about (to my surprise and to their delight). Here’s a tutorial that I often use as a gentle introduction:

The Ideophone is a blog I started in 2007. Top reads include my piece on Google Scholar, a critical take on Academia.edu, and my scan of Magritte’s Les mots et les images.
