The Most Complete Mathematics Database Available

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. Over 100,000 new items are added to the database each year.

Extending the MR tradition, MathSciNet contains millions of items and direct links to original articles from over 1,800 journals. Bibliographic data from retrodigitized articles dates back to the early 1800s.

The page layout on each of the search options is straightforward, and the similarity between the Basic and Advanced Search screens make the tool less intimidating to users of all types.
