Abralin has been a pioneer in the Open Science movement by adopting an open access policy, encouraging the publication of preprints in public platforms, and sharing analysis data sets, instruments, statistical analysis scripts, scripts, and additional materials in open repositories. Moreover, the evaluation process of all Abralin’s publications is double-unblinded: the author(s) and the reviewers are not anonymous to each other. However, being part of the Open Science movement has inspired us to reflect on the consequences of such practices. It is of paramount importance to discuss and adequately respond to ethical and copyright issues, challenges to replication, and issues of originality and innovation, as well as costs (publication, availability of access and data, financing of research). The problems encountered in the field of linguistics extend to other areas of the humanities, and are not limited to Brazilian researchers. Therefore, we propose discussing the “Challenges of Linguistics in Open Science,” and accordingly, Abralin will place Brazilian linguistics at the forefront and in a leading position in the international academic community.
All InterAb12 activities will be broadcast on Abralin’s YouTube channel with free and open access to everyone.
Abralin members will propose the program of the event by submitting proposals for the event. The proposers can apply to organize a panel session or give oral presentations and digital video posters. Papers for oral presentation and video posters will be selected by Abralin’s thematic committees. The participants can also take part in panel sessions. Moreover, The Abralin award will take place during InterAb12.
Although the main theme of the event is “Challenges of Linguistics in Open Science,” proposals in any of the areas of linguistics will be considered. Papers that are directly related to the theme of the event will be considered for the keynote talks.
A panel session proposal should be submitted only by the person who will moderate it. A panel session will be composed of a moderator and three participants. The moderator only moderates the activity. Participants must be from different institutions. Submit your proposal!
- Abstract (max 3,000 characters)
- Three keywords
- Moderator’s name, affiliation, and email
- Name, affiliation, and e-mail, and short biographies of the three participants
The paper must be formatted strictly according to this template. Papers that are submitted in any other formatting will be rejected. Submit your paper!
- Name, email, and affiliation of the presenter (first author of the paper)
- Title of the paper
The maximum duration of a video poster is five minutes. There is no specific presentation format, and we encourage you to think creatively for your video poster. We have prepared a PowerPoint template that can be used in your video poster. Send your poster!
- Name, email, and affiliation of the presenter (first author of the poster)
- Link to the video (Make sure that the link is working correctly, is not restricted, and does not expire. Any failure in the link during the reviewing process will result in the elimination of the proposal).
The scientific committee of each thematic area will evaluate and select the proposals. The evaluation process is double-unblinded.
