DBLP is a computer science bibliography website hosted at Universität Trier, in Germany. It was originally a database and logic programming bibliography site, and has existed at least since the 1980s. DBLP listed more than 2.1 million articles on computer science in November 2012. All important journals on computer science are tracked. Proceedings papers of many conferences are also tracked. It is mirrored at five sites across the Internet.
DBLP originally stood for DataBase systems and Logic Programming. As a backronym, it has been taken to stand for Digital Bibliography & Library Project, however it is now preferred that the acronym be simply a name, hence the new title "The DBLP Computer Science Bibliography".
|Stable release||2.0b / September 6, 2006|
DBL-Browser (Digital Bibliographic Library Browser) is a utility for browsing the DBLP website. The browser was written by Alexander Weber in 2005 at Universität Trier. It is designed for use off-line in reading the DBLP, which consists of 910,000 bibliographic entries, as of July 2007.
DBL-Browser is GPL software, available for download from SourceForge. It uses the XML DTD. Written in Java programming language, this code shows the bibliographic entry in several types of screens, ranging from graphics to text:
- Author page
- Article page
- Table of contents
- Related conferences / journals
- Related authors (graphic representation of relationships)
- Trend analysis (graphics histogram)
DBLP is similar to the bibliographic portion of arxiv.org which also links to articles. DBL-Browser provides a means to view some of the associated computer science articles.

- FacetedDBLP provides a faceted search interface to DBLP, synchronized once per week with the DBLP database. In addition to common facets such as year, author, or venues, it contains a topic-based facet summarizing and characterizing the current result set based on the author keywords for individual publications. For the DBLP data, FacetedDBLP also provides an RDF dump (using D2R server technology) as well as an SQL dump based on the underlying mysql database.
