If a database is truly collaborative, the workflows need to be accessible for everybody. The Concepticon database  (List et al., 2019) invites contributors to include their own data sets. This requires a transparent description of the contributing process.

The key task which this algorithm solves is to take aligned data as input and to compute explicit sound correspondence patterns from the alignments.
