While a large number of business process model patterns have been suggested in the literature, it is currently difficult to find patterns that might be useful in a given context. The reason is that the relevant publications are spread in various journals and other types of publications, and there is no guidance for locating a pattern that can be useful for solving a given problem. In our article, we present the results of a literature survey that has been conducted with the aim to get an exhaustive overview on existing publications on business process modeling patterns. The results of the survey allowed us to propose a taxonomy of existing patterns as a first step towards a pattern language of business process model patterns. Furthermore, we created an online catalog that allows finding publications on business process model patterns based on various search criteria. It is intended to be useful both for business process modeling practitioners as for researchers in need of sound literature references. Currently, this catalog includes links to 89 publications (usually containing more than one pattern). It is our aim to populate the catalog with patterns published in the future.
