The Language Repository of Switzerland (LaRS) is a national platform for the publication of linguistic research data. LaRS uses SWISSUbase as its repository system. SWISSUbase facilitates access to research data and projects across different disciplines and provides Swiss research institutions with a reliable data infrastructure.
SWISSUbase is operated in partnership between FORS and the Universities of Zurich and Lausanne. Three Data Service Units (DSUs) use SWISSUbase, and additional partners and DSUs are welcome:
Researchers in linguistics at PhD level and above can publish and archive data free of charge. The requirements are institutional representation in the CLARIN CH consortium and a SWITCH edu-ID.
LaRS allows you to publish and archive data collections in file form. You can publish all types of data (text, audio, video, image, programming scripts etc.) as long as their format is suitable for long-term storage.
In addition, you must comply with data protection regulations. The publication of sufficient documentation material is recommended and required by research funders. Please refer to the LaRS Policy
