UBC Research Data Management Survey: Health Sciencesby Barsky, Eugene; Brown, Helen; Ellis, Ursula; Ishida, Mayu; Janke, Robert; Menzies, Erin; Miller, Katherine; Mitchell, Marjorie; Vis-Dunbar, Mathew

In 2016, the Canadian federal funding agencies introduced the Tri-Agency Statement of Principles on Digital Data Management, which advocates for developing data management plans (DMPs) and making data available for future research. A data management plan addresses questions about: research data types and formats, metadata standards, ethics and legal compliance, data storage and reuse, assignment of data management responsibilities, and resource requirements. With anticipation that DMPs will be increasingly required in grants applications, librarians at University of British Columbia surveyed researchers about their RDM practices and needs in three phases, each of which targets different disciplines: 1) the Sciences and Engineering (fall 2015), 2) the Social Sciences and Humanities (fall 2016), and 3) the Health Sciences (spring 2017). The surveys illuminate disciplinary differences in RDM, and will inform the University in developing infrastructure and services to support researchers in RDM. This report describes findings from the third survey at UBC targeting researchers in the Health Sciences.

Multi-Language Conversational Telephone Speech 2011 -- Turkishby Jones, Karen; Graff, David; Walker, Kevin; Strassel, Stephanie


Multi-Language Conversational Telephone Speech 2011 -- Turkish was developed by the Linguistic Data Consortium (LDC) and is comprised of approximately 18 hours of telephone speech in Turkish.

The data were collected primarily to support research and technology evaluation in automatic language identification, and portions of these telephone calls were used in the NIST 2011 Language Recognition Evaluation (LRE). LRE 2011 focused on language pair discrimination for 24 languages/dialects, some of which could be considered mutually intelligible or closely related.

LDC has released the following as part of the Multi-Language Conversation Telephone Speech 2011 series:

  • Slavic Group (LDC2016S11)
  • Turkish (LDC2017S09)


Participants were recruited by native speakers who contacted acquaintances in their social network. Those native speakers made one call, up to 15 minutes, to each acquaintance. The data was collected using LDC's telephone collection infrastructure, comprised of three computer telephony systems. Human auditors labeled calls for callee gender, dialect type and noise. Demographic information about the participants was not collected.

All audio data are presented in FLAC-compressed MS-WAV (RIFF) file format (*.flac); when uncompressed, each file is 2 channels, recorded at 8000 samples/second with samples stored as 16-bit signed integers, representing a lossless conversion from the original mu-law sample data as captured digitally from the public telephone network. The following table summarizes the total number of calls, total number of hours of recorded audio, and the total size of compressed data:
