BibSonomy is a social bookmark and publication sharing system. It is developed and operated by the KDE group of the University of Kassel, the DMIR group of the University of Würzburg, and the L3S Research Center, Germany.
News & Contact
- The most important source of information is the BibSonomy blog where we announce and explain new releases and features. We try to release a new version of BibSonomy every month (on the Wednesday before the last Thursday of the month) and in the subsequent weeks describe new features in our feature of the week post series.
- You can also follow us on Twitter (@BibSonomyCrew or #bibsonomy) and become a member of our Google+ community.
- In addition, there are mailing lists for German and English speaking users.
- The responsible persons to contact are Prof. Dr. Andreas Hotho and Prof. Dr. Robert Jäschke.
The system has also been described in the research article The Social Bookmark and Publication Management System BibSonomy.
Integration with other Websites and Services
BibSonomy integrates well with other websites, content management systems, and reference managers. Furthermore, you can connect BibSonomy to your own software using one of our API (application programming interface) clients. This list describes ways to integrate BibSonomy with various systems and technologies - ranging from code snippets to complete and powerful, easy-to-install plugins or API clients.
BibSonomy is a Java-based web application, backed-up by a MySQL database and Apache Lucene for fulltext search.
- The development portal contains more information for developers.
- Please use the issue tracker to report bugs and request new features.
- The source code of BibSonomy is available in this repository.
- licenses of the different modules
- All those modules are also available in a public Maven repository.
- In addition, there exist many other repositories that contain code for integration with other tools and programming languages, e.g., Python, PHP, JabRef, Firefox, TYPO3, ...
- The API documentation describes the
basic functionality of the REST-API. It presents the XML schema and
contains examples. Newer features, like synchronization, are not
described, yet. For that have a look at the classes in the package
org.bibsonomy.model.logicin the bibsonomy-model module and use their implementation in the REST client.
- You can have a look at some Java code samples or have a look at the bibsonomy-tools project which is also another good source of code samples. Users of other programming languages can also have a look at the REST client to see which URLs are called.
- The BibSonomy post filter and a (yet to be finished) Python REST client for the BibSonomy API might be other good sources to play around with.
- Every six months we release a snapshot of all public posts in BibSonomy which you can get from the data sets page.
- Data from BibSonomy was used in the ECML PKDD Discovery Challenges 2008 and 2009 in classification and tag recommendation tasks (lessons learnt).
- There are some BibSonomy-related publications of the KDE group, in particular the article The Social Bookmark and Publication Management System BibSonomy.
- Publications that have used the BibSonomy dataset can be found by the Google Scholar search "BibSonomy dataset".
