LexBib wikibase

Welcome to LexBib wikibase at Elexis. LexBib is a digital bibliography project for the domain of Lexicography and Dictionary Research (about LexBib). General aims are LOD-ification of publication metadata, and content description of 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.

LexBib data, including full texts, is regularly exported to the Elexifinder discovery portal, where it can be conveniently explored (link). Elexifinder offers full text searches for concepts obtained through wikification, combined with categories derived from LexVoc.

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).
