The BABAR Publications Data Base (PubDB) is used to
store information for all forms of public documentation and publications
The web-based interface to the PubDB allows anyone to search for and
view these documents.
The interface to the PubDB is at
There is also a version without frames at
The PubDB currently holds the following types of documents:
Journal papers [BABAR-PUB-yy/nn]
Conference abstracts [BABAR-ABS-nnnn]
Conference submissions [BABAR-CONF-yy/nn]
Conference presentations and proceedings [BABAR-TALK-yy/nn and
BABAR theses [BABAR-THESIS-nnnn]
Public plots or figures [BABAR-PLOT-nnnn]
BABAR Notes [BABAR-NOTE-nnnn]
BABAR seminars, colloquia and review talks
Each entry in the PubDB typically corresponds to more than one
For example, an entry for a journal paper consists of both a pdf and
compressed postscript version of the paper, as well as postscript files
for each figure.
[BABAR-ABS-nnnn] The publication type named "Abstract" contains
abstracts submitted to conferences such as the EPS, DPF and APS
[BABAR-CONF-yy/nn] A "conference submission" is the paper that
BABAR submits before a conference.
It usually describes a single analysis and does not necessarily
correspond to any particular talk at the conference.
It is a resource for speakers giving reviews at conferences and provides
publicly available (through the e-print
archive) documentation of a BABAR analysis.
[BABAR-TALK-yy/nn and BABAR-PROC-yy/nn] A "conference talk" is the
presentation that is made by a single BABAR collaborator.
There may be a corresponding "conference proceeding", which is the
writeup of the talk.
If there is a written conference proceeding corresponding to a talk, the
proceeding is assigned the same number (yy/nn) as the talk.
This category includes seminars and colloquia given at major laboratories.
The "seminars, colloquia and review talks" category includes some of the
personal seminars, colloquia and review talks that have been given by
[BABAR-THESIS-nnnn] Although BABAR theses are not reviewed
by the Collaboration and are not considered BABAR publications, they are
included in the PubDB for the convenience of the author and those who
would like a copy of a particular thesis.
[BABAR-PLOT-nnnn] The "public plots and figures" category contains
figures that are approved by the Collaboration but do not appear in a
public document such as a journal paper or conference submission.
Plots in this category include detector performance plots, PEP-II performance
plots, and compilations of results from different analyses within BABAR
(e.g., mixing frequency) or from different experiments (e.g., sin2beta).
