Access to lexicographic research is highly important for lexicographers when conceptualizing and compiling dictionaries, and preparing their publications for presentation to the lexicographic community. There have been several attempts to offer a systematic record of lexicographic scientific output, and advanced search of it, but most of them are no longer updated, focus only on bibliographic data, and do not include works from other fields related to lexicography. The tool called ELEXIFINDER has been developed within the European Infrastructure for Lexicography (ELEXIS) project in order to facilitate knowledge exchange in the lexicographic community and promote open access culture in lexicographic research.
