In 1998 I decide to use the World Wide Web technology to make a searchable web page for DEA publications. Since then and until the end of 2001, these pages and the DEA database were placed in an Internet server at Instituto Politécnico da Guarda in Portugal (http://www.ipg.pt/dea). I would like to express many thanks to the Instituto Politécnico da Guarda for allowing me to have used its computer systems during the past 3 years. Also, I would like to thank the many contributions of several DEA researchers to this DEA database. To have an idea of the current dimension of the DEA bibliography database, in figure 1 some statistics can be seen. In section 2 (p. 3), a more specific analysis to these numbers is given. v Consists of 3,203 publications: ü 1,259 journal papers: ⇒ Total of almost 18,000 pages; ⇒ Average number of pages per paper is 14.1 (st. dev. is 9.4 pages); ü 115 research papers; ü 1,469 event papers; ü 50 books; ü 171 dissertations; v Written by 2,152 distinct authors: ü Average number of authors per publication is 2.0 (st. dev. is 1.0 authors); ü Known contact information ranges around: ⇒ 49 countries; ⇒ 295 cities; ⇒ 305 institutions (213 universities, 73 departments, etc); v Characterized by 1,242 distinct keywords: ü Average number of keywords per publication is 3.8 (st. dev. is 1.3 keywords). Figure 1: General statistics about the DEA bibliography database. One interesting point is why I decided to put so much effort in the event papers. In the DEA database there are 35 papers published in journals that have been presented in conferences prior to their publication (with the exact same title). In average, these 35 papers were presented almost after 2 years. This number corroborates the fact that the state of the art of any field cannot ignore this type of work. The majority of the event papers have been published in conference proceedings. The events with the most contributions to this document were: • The INFORMS national and international meetings; • The EURO annual meetings; • The Operations Research Society annual meetings; • The biannual North American Productivity Workshop and • The biannual European Workshop on Efficiency and Productivity Analysis.  P AGE 2 RRR 01-2002 In this bibliography, there are 2,152 DEA authors. The list of DEA references of each one of these authors can be seen in section 4 (p. 135). In section 4, the known email addresses of the authors are also given. Further, the number of different types (i.e., journal paper, event paper, book, book chapter, dissertation, special journal and working paper) of publications is also distinguished for each author. In this bibliography, there are 1,242 keywords. There are some publications that in fact do not have keywords, but there are many other publications that have keywords that are unknown. A little more than ¼ of the DEA references have keywords. The list of DEA references where each particular keyword appears can be obtained in section 5 (p. 169). To the best of my knowledge, the data was correctly introduced in the DEA database. However, due to its large dimensions, the information contained in the DEA database cannot be 100% accurate. Therefore, I apologize in advance for any inconvenience introduced by any imprecisions. If any errors are found, please email me the errors/corrections. Also, I invite each DEA author to check his current list of DEA publications in this paper and to send me the new/updated list for a future revision/version of this document.
