What is the meaning of the colors in the publication lists?

dblp's classification of publications is still far from being perfect, but we try to improve it.

The color boxes in front of a publication entry is an indicator of the type of publication. We use the same color scheme throughout all of our website:

Books and Theses
Journal Articles
Conference and Workshop Papers
Parts in Books or Collections
Reference Works
Data and Artifacts
Informal and Other Publications
