This API is currently under development. Please do not rely on in production environment. August 2017
Since 1.9.2015 following licenses must be reviewed and respected
- articles of "Allgemeine Deutsche Biographie (ADB)", given in a
container: CC-BY-NC-SA attribution to "Deutsche Biographie",
- articles of "Neue Deutsche Biographie (NDB)" given in a
container: CC-BY-NC-ND attribution to "Deutsche Biographie",
- basic metadata CC0.

The export of meta-data into neo4j was planned as and still is a proof-of-concept. The preliminary model is based on the structure of the articles published successively in volumes. Other metadata is drawn from XML supposed to feed the index. This data should be deriveable from the Solr-API. There are only few types of relationships of persons extracted, most relations rely on co-occurance in a part of an article. The naming of Node- and Edge-types is still slightly confusing (as of 4/2022) and subject to change.
4/2022 - second export, new volume, only minor changes, tested in neo4j-4.4.6
11/2017 - first export, tested in neo4j-3.3.0
The network of individual articles can be fetched in different formates and folded out to a certain extent here. An example would be:
