Our Commitment to Openness
We believe that open science practices are a critical part of scientific progress. Accordingly, we are committed to releasing code, data, and materials for our research by default and whenever possible. PDF links on the publications page are typically accompanied by a link to the related github repository for materials. If you are looking for materials, code, or data but do not find them, please contact us.
For more project code and the most up-to-date materials (including on unpublished projects), please see our lab github page. Our videos are hosted through a databrary page.
In addition, we have created several tools for browsing open data repositories related to our projects:
- Wordbank, an interactive database of children’s vocabulary growth across languages (using data from MacArthur Communicative Development Inventory forms)
- MetaLab, interactive meta- and meta-meta-analysis tools for child language
- WordBirths, visualization of data from the Human Speechome Project
The remainder of this page hosts permanent materials links for older projects.
