What is RefBank?

RefBank brings different goodies to different people.


RefBank is a website, where you can search for references.
No registration is required (everyone can upload and edit).
Results can be converted in different styles and formats.


RefBank is a great way to store the references.
No single point of failure.
No single authority in control of the data.
Regular updates and backups behind the scenes.


RefBank is a distributed, coordinator-free network of independent servers (nodes), akin to a peer-to-peer architecture.

Each reference string is identified by its MD5 hash. Duplicates are detected and prevented.
