Do you need support to find, analyse, describe, or archive research data? The research-oriented infrastructure CLARIN-D for the Humanities and Social Sciences can help you with all language-related resources. The CLARIN-D centres cover a wide range of expertise: among others, from syntactically annotated text corpora to psycholinguistic experiments, from historical texts to lexical resources, from speech databases to highly interoperable speech technology tools and web-based services for language and speech processing. CLARIN-D helps you finding and accessing a wide range of data and tools as well as expertise from fellow scientists. CLARIN-D also helps you to cope with data management plans that help you manage the full life cycle of your research data. This includes dealing with ethics and legal questions as well as securing the long-term archiving of your data.
CLARIN-D is a digital infrastructure for language and speech resources for Humanities and Social Sciences, and it is here to stay. The CLARIN-D expertise is built on a network of specialist institutes of international repute.
CLARIN-D is user-centered: it provides Humanities and Social Sciences scholars with standardised resources and technologies, so that they can focus on answering research questions rather than cope with complex technological detail. CLARIN-D fosters the propagation of resources and tools so that fellow scientists can profit from prior research more easily.
