LZI+DBLP: Consolidation of|the bibliometric basis|in Informatics


Funding science needs deliberate decisions but facing the increasing complexity and specialization of research, policy makers find this a daunting task. Looking at the publications of researchers and research groups is an established base for identifying fruitful research. However, the culture of publication within informatics is unique and traditional methods cannot be applied. For informatics the DBLP literature database provides a popular open-source gateway to literature. In a joint project, Leibniz Center for Informatics Schloss Dagstuhl–a world-renowned meeting place for international research groups–and DBLP have started a collaboration to strengthening the value of DBLP.


Cooperation Partners

The project LZI+DBLP is a cooperation between Schloss Dagstuhl – Leibniz-Zentrum für Informatik and the literature database DBLP, which is managed at the Chair for Databases and Information Systems located at the University of Trier.




Project Funding

The project is funded by the Senatsausschuss Wettbewerb (SAW) (Senate Committee Competition) of the Leibniz Association.


Project Duration

June, 2011–May, 2013.
