Mathematics Databases


MathSciNet search interface

MathSciNet search fields contain options which are present in many other databases, such as Author, Title, Journal, and DOI. It also allows users to search with MSC (Mathematics Subject Classification) Primary, which arre assigned to articles by subject area experts. Expert reviewers are selected by a staff of professional mathematicians to write reviews of the current published literature; over 90,000 reviews are added to the database each year. MR (Mathematical Reviews) Number allows users to search for an article by the unique id the article has in the database; and Reviewer would let you search for all articles that have been reviewed by a single person.

MathSciNet author profile

Authors are uniquely identified (by their MR Author ID), enabling a search for publications by individual author rather than by name string.
