Audio Commons Datasets

During the development of the Audio Commons project we have created a number of data collections of interest for research purposes. The complete list of these data collections with information about their availability and preservation policies can be found in our Data Management Plan. This includes 33 entreis covering a wide range of topics. What follows is a selection of those entries that can be of more general interest and are openly available. Please check the Data Management Plan for full details.

  • Requirements survey: Responses to a survey we launched to collect user requirements for the design of AudioCommons services. This includes the responses of 600+ participants. Available in Zenodo.
