Quantifying Everyday Ecologies: Principles for Manual Annotation of Many Hours of Infants' Lives

Jennifer K. Mendoza, Caitlin M. Fausey
2021 Frontiers in Psychology  
We identify principles, and share implementation examples and tools, to help theorists achieve scalable solutions to challenges that are especially fierce when annotating extended timescales.  ...  These realities make manual annotation a frequent barrier to discoveries, as theorists instead opt for narrower scoped activities.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS We thank Catherine Diercks and Christine White for contributing to data collection, team management, and open science material preparation.  ...

2020 Behavior Research Methods  
Audio data, particularly real-world audio recordings, are of particular interest to behavioral scientists because they provide high-fidelity access to subtle aspects of daily life and social interactions  ...  This article is also accompanied by an Open Science Framework Ethics Repository that includes informed consent resources such as frequent participant concerns and sample consent forms.  ...  Since tools for automatically extracting speech information from raw audio are still quite limited, it would be desirable to have more manually annotated data which is easily shared so that speech technology  ...
