'Just What Do You Think You Are Doing, Dave?' A Checklist for Responsible Data Use in NLP

2021
Authors: Anna Rogers, Tim Baldwin, Kobi Leins
Findings of EMNLP

A key part of the NLP ethics movement is responsible use of data, but exactly what that means or how it can be best achieved remain unclear. This position paper discusses the core legal and ethical principles for collection and sharing of textual data, and the tensions between them. We propose a potential checklist for responsible data (re-)use that could both standardise the peer review of conference submissions, as well as enable a more in-depth view of published research across the community. Our proposal aims to contribute to the development of a consistent standard for data (re-)use, embraced across NLP conferences.
