The usage of DBLP

I saw people use DBLP to verify my publication. People have to pay attention that it does not index all the journals in its list and it isn’t very selective for conferences. You can send your conferences for being indexed. I do not know if they really select conferences. One thing is good is that they pay attention to make the record right. I sent a notice to them to point out that they merged the records of two authors due to they happened to have the same names. Some time later, I found the records are corrected. Unfortunately, one author can’t be searched by the same name now. They have to display all the authors to let people select.

  • DBLP is a great initiative. I think it would be easy to build upon it.

    For example, you could couple DBLP with weights for each conferences and build some kind of weighted pub list. I don't know.

    But I have no time for this, do you?
