MathSciNet is an electronic publication of the American Mathematical Society (AMS), offering access to a carefully maintained and easily searchable database of reviews, abstracts and bibliographic information for much of the mathematical sciences literature. MathSciNet contains information on over 4 million articles and books, with direct links to over 2.7 million articles in over 1,800 journals. Bibliographic data from digitized articles extends to the early 1800s.
MathSciNet includes expert reviews, disambiguated author profiles, and citation information on articles, books, journals, and authors. Over 100,000 new items are added each year, most of them classified according to the Mathematics Subject Classification.
Continuing in the tradition of the paper publication, Mathematical Reviews, 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 80,000 reviews are added to the database each year.
