December 16, 2010 (ANN ARBOR, Mich.) – Mathematical Reviews has chosen ProQuest as provider of dissertations for MathSciNet, the widely-acclaimed database in the mathematical sciences. MathSciNet now includes over 59,000 mathematics-related citations from ProQuest Dissertations & Theses, the world’s most widely consulted source of graduate research, and new citations are being added monthly.
“We feel dissertations provide an important source of not only emerging research but also classic scholarly works for our thousands of users,” said Graeme Fairweather, Executive Editor, Mathematical Reviews. “Since our goal is to connect our users with the best content, ProQuest was the obvious choice because its breadth and depth in this area are unsurpassed.”
The new content, which encompasses citations to current and older mathematics-related graduate works, debuted in the new version of MathSciNet released in October. Links from the citations appear in search results and then resolve in ProQuest Dissertations & Theses, enabling researchers to move directly to the dissertation (or a comprehensive preview) once they find a citation of interest.
MathSciNet is the latest major subject index to integrate ProQuest as provider of dissertations. Others include PsycINFO, Chemical Abstracts, ERIC, Institute of Physics, and the Modern Language Association. Researchers rely on ProQuest Dissertations & Theses as a source of enlightening information and as a pivotal component in making their own scholarly production available to the world’s intellectual communities. The archive is managed at ProQuest by a team of scholars and technologists, who combine their talents to make the archive accessible, reliable and supported by continually advancing technology.
