This electronic publication of the American Mathematical Society (AMS) offers access to a carefully maintained and easily searchable database of reviews, abstracts and bibliographic information for mathematical sciences literature.
Expert-written Reviews of Current Literature
Continuing in the tradition of the paper publication, Mathematical Reviews (MR), which was first published in 1940, experts are selected by a staff of professional mathematicians to write reviews of the current published literature.
Extending the MR tradition, MathSciNet contains millions of items and more than 2.2 million direct links to original articles from over 1,800 journals. Bibliographic data from retrodigitized articles dates back to the early 1800s.
Unique Identification of Authors
“Unique identification of authors, an unusual offering in subject databases and an important feature in MathSciNet®, makes it possible to identify and follow an author’s work easily and accurately,” according to “The Value of Subject Indexes Developed by Experts” in Library Journal.
