MathSciNet – New Version Released

MathSciNet, an electronic database of reviews, abstracts and bibliographic information for much of the mathematical sciences literature, now includes the following enhancements and features:

  • Improved display of mathematics using MathJax, an open source JavaScript display engine for mathematics that works in all modern browsers
  • Direct links to books, book chapters, and series using DOIs registered by publishers
  • Bibliographic entries and direct links for Ph.D. theses in mathematics, applied mathematics, and statistics from the ProQuest Dissertations & Theses database

MathSciNet, published by the American Mathematical Society, contains over 2 million items and over 1 million direct links to original articles. Bibliographic data from retrodigitized articles dates back to the early 1800s. Reference lists are collected and matched internally from approximately 450 journals, and citation data for journals, authors, articles and reviews is provided. This web of citations allows users to track the history and influence of research publications in the mathematical sciences. Over 100,000 new items are added each year, most of them classified according to the Mathematics Subject Classification. Authors are uniquely identified, enabling a search for publications by individual author rather than by name string. Continuing in the tradition of the paper publication, Mathematical Reviews (MR), which was first published in 1940, expert reviewers are selected by a staff of professional mathematicians to write reviews of the current published literature; over 40,000 reviews are added to the database each year.
