This page lists existing refbase installations:
We have installed a few demo databases where you can login and play around. Please feel free to use them as sandbox to discover the features of refbase.
- The official refbase demo database is based on the latest stable release version (currently, refbase-0.9.5): http://demo.refbase.net/
- There's another demo database that's based on the latest SVN version: http://beta.refbase.net/
- For a multibyte-aware demo database which uses a Unicode/UTF-8 encoded MySQL database, please check out: http://refbase.textdriven.com/beta/
We are aware of several hundred installations worldwide, a few of them are listed below, some more can be found via Google. If you maintain your own publicly available installation, you're welcome to add it to the list!
- The public literature database at http://www.refbase.org/ allows you to manage and share your academic literature online. This database is meant for people who cannot (or don't want to) install their own refbase server. It's freely available to everybody, but if you'd just like to test out refbase please use one of the above mentioned demo databases instead.
