Second Language Research Corpus (L2RC): This corpus is comprised of approximately 22,000 articles from 22 journals that primarily publish L2 research (~147M words). The corpus is currently being used to extract methodological features (e.g., sample demographics, statistical analyses and point estimates, validity evidence) to describe the field overall and over time.

Coffee & Cronbach
Coffee & Cronbach is a club (advisors: Jesse Egbert, Luke Plonsky) that has been meeting on monthly basis (since 2011) to discuss methodological issues relevant to applied linguistics research. Recent topics include probability and the handling of outliers. All are welcome!
