These pages provide access to publications related to the OBIS database - including papers, reports, and workshops. Access to web-links or PDF files are provided for your convenience after each citation whenever possible. Unfortunately, some links may require subscription or restricted access to the journal network hosting an article.

If you are the author of an article that mentions OBIS, or are aware of one, we'dlove to hear about it, and put a link, or at least the reference to the publication, on this page. Contact us through the contact form on this site, or by email at
