To be approved for Researcher or Semi-Researcher status, you must provide the
address for a web page that verifies your status. Please remember that even if
you aren't approved as Researcher or Semi-Researcher, you can still still use
the corpora -- just at a lower level of access (Level #1
The web page that you specify must meet the following conditions.
1. The web page must show
your name on that exact page that you specify.
If it is the home page
for a university, it will NOT list your name. Go to the web page that you
have specified, and look for your name on that EXACT page. If you don't see your
name there, then we can't either.
2. For Researcher status, the
web page must be from a university -- not Facebook, LinkedIn, etc.
3. The web page must be
publicly-accessible. Don't use a web page that requires users to log in to
4. If the web page is not in
Western script (i.e. if it is in Chinese, Korean, Japanese, or Arabic),
please include your name written in the other script, in the "Profile" box of
the registration form. This will allow us to search for your name on the web
Please note that 15-20 people
each day register for Researcher or Semi-Researcher status, and about half of
these do not
meet the conditions shown above (especially #1). In these cases, the higher
User Level is denied. Please help us by only
requesting Researcher or Semi-Researcher status if you know that the web page
meets conditions #1-4. Otherwise, it will waste both your time and ours.
