LexBib wikibase

Welcome to LexBib wikibase at Elexis. LexBib is a digital bibliography project for the domain of Lexicography and Dictionary Research. General aims are LOD-ification of publication metadata, and content description of metalexicographic article full texts, as a service to the lexicographic community. LexBib wikibase brings together LexBib Zotero bibliographical data and a vocabulary of lexicographic terms, LexVoc. We are working on extending the scope of LexBib towards Dictionaries.

LexBib data, including full texts, is regularly exported to the Elexifinder discovery portal, where publication metadata and full text contents can be conveniently explored (link). Elexifinder offers searches and filters by author, source, or publication language, and full text searches for concepts obtained through wikification, combined with categories derived from LexVoc.

Publications and presentations about LexBib are listed here.

If you are looking for publication metadata for download to your own citation manager app, or e.g. as bibtex, go to LexBib Zotero. If you want to discover publications, by searching for authors, languages, or terms, go to Elexifinder. LexBib wikibase data can also be queried in a graphical interface, or accessed using its SPARQL endpoint; single entities and their relations can be downloaded as entity data RDF dump (example).

The following links lead to simple SPARQL queries in a graphical interface. Queries are executed on the fly by pressing the start button, and results always reflect LexBib wikibase content at that particular point in time. You can modify or combine the queries. If you are an author, a quick way to check which of your articles are already in the database is to find yourself through the main search above, and then click on "What links here" in the side pane menu. You can also search for yourself on LexBib Zotero or Elexifinder.
