*JRC, the EC’s Joint Research Centre, an important LR player: First to 
adopt the ISLRN initiative*

The Joint Research Centre (JRC), the European Commission's in house 
science service, is the first organisation to use the International 
Standard Language Resource Number (ISLRN) initiative and has requested 
ISLRN 13-digit unique identifiers to its Language Resources (LR).
Thus, anyone who is using JRC LRs may now refer to this number in their 
own publications.

The current JRC LRs (downloadable from 
https://ec.europa.eu/jrc/en/language-technologies) with an ISLRN ID are:

  * DGT-Acquis, ISLRN: 393-866-130-658-2
  * DGT-TM, ISLRN: 710-653-952-884-4
  * EAC-TM, ISLRN: 589-927-543-547-4
  * ECDC-TM, ISLRN: 476-596-396-497-8
  * English sentiment quotes, ISLRN: 574-735-957-886-6
  * JRC-Acquis, ISLRN: 821-325-977-001-1
  * JRC-Names, ISLRN: 328-863-023-410-2
  * Multilingual summary evaluation data, ISLRN: 762-292-165-648-8
  * Turkish Tweet Named Entity annotation, ISLRN: 764-177-227-350-7


The *International Standard Language Resource Number (ISLRN)* aims to 
provide unique identifiers using a standardised nomenclature, thus 
ensuring that LRs are correctly identified, and consequently, recognised 
with proper references for their usage in applications within R&D 
projects, product evaluation and benchmarking, as well as in documents 
and scientific papers. Moreover, this is a major step in the networked 
and shared world that Human Language Technologies (HLT) has become: 
unique resources must be identified as such and meta-catalogues need a 
common identification format to manage data correctly.
