PVAF – Publication Venue Authority File.

A publication venue authority file is an index of authority records, where each record representing a publication venue is composed of a heading to be used as the publication venue label and a list of variant labels also used to refer to the publication venue, called cross references. The headings and the cross references can be used by a search system to answer queries related to a publication venue. Our authority file contains information about journals, conferences, and workshops. For each publication venue, the authority file stores the variant forms of writing the current title and acronym, title and acronym formerly, when the publication venue changed its name, and merge of, when the publication venue was originated from the fusion of two or more other publication venues. It also stores some extra information, such as issn, publisher, web site and bibliometrics.
