- 2015-06-18: 3 million publications
We are happy to announce that on Thursday, June 18, 2015, the dblp computer science bibliography indexed its 3-millionth publication. Thanks to the joint effort of the University of Trier and Schloss Dagstuhl, as well as the commitment and help of our dedicated users and data partners, dblp has grown to be the world's most comprehensive open bibliographic data service in computer science. And the service is still growing strong: In each of the past three years, more than 325.000 new publications have been added to the database.
Every month, more than 450.000 distinct users visit the dblp web pages. On average, five dblp pages are viewed per second, and every three seconds a new user session is started. The dblp team understands this ever-growing demand as an incentive to keep consolidating and improving our service.
dblp was built for the computer science research community. It is your tool, and we want it to meet your specific needs, e.g., when you are searching for articles, looking for bibliographic data, or browsing authors and publication venues of computer science. So if you have any ideas or suggestions about how we can improve the utility of dblp for your daily work, please let us know!

- 2015-03-03: Monthly snapshot releases
The dblp data set (found at dblp.dagstuhl.de/xml/) is studied or used as a benchmark in many scientific publications. However, due to the daily updates to dblp, it can be sometimes difficult to reproduce experimental results made on earlier versions. To remedy this problem, starting from today, dblp will provide and archive stable monthly snapshot releases of the dblp data set. We encourage you to use these snapshot releases for your experiments and to cite their persistent URLs in published articles to. You can find the archived dblp data snapshots at dblp.dagstuhl.de/xml/release/.
