Center for the Promotion of Collaborative Research

The Center for the Promotion of Collaborative Research was established as a facility for collecting, organizing, and preserving research literature (in the Research Library) and research materials (in the Research Materials Room) in Japanese language, linguistics, Japanese language education and related fields. The center also facilitates their shared use by researchers by making them available to visitors to browse in person as well as electronically on the Web.

(3) Promotion of Other Collaborative Research

    [Organizing and participating in events]
  • To promote the shared use of research literature and materials and encourage applications for collaborative research projects, we host events such as shared-use seminars, participate in academic conferences and events, and engage in public relations.

    [Electronic distribution of datasets] https://mmsrv.ninjal.ac.jp/
  • To promote the use of datasets owned by NINJAL, we grant licenses such as CC BY to the dataset and distribute them electronically.
