TeX Resources
The American Mathematical Society (AMS) offers access to a family of TeXrelated products for the convenience of authors and MathSciNet searchers.

The TeX program is not available from the AMS. It can be obtained

Our list of other TeX resources may also be helpful.

CTAN (the Comprehensive TeX Archive Network) is the principal public archive of TeX materials.

CTAN is a synchronized worldwide network of hosts and mirror sites which can be accessed either directly by FTP or via a Web browser.

American Mathematical Society TeX Products
For the convenience of authors, the AMS supports a family of TeXrelated style file collections, fonts, manuals, and author packages for preparing submissions to AMS publications.

Three collections provide basic support for preparation of mathematical publications. Each collection includes a user's guide.
These collections are bundled as zip files suitable for all platforms.
They are also part of the basic TeX Live distribution; if you already have a recent TeX Live (or similar systemspecific) installation, it is not necessary to obtain these collections separately.

Some additional LaTeX utilities are not part of the above collections:

amsrefs  control bibliography style through LaTeX rather than BibTeX

snapshot  create a list of external dependencies for a LaTeX document
Author Packages

Author packages based on AMSLaTeX and AMSTeX and tailored to specific AMS books or journals are available for most AMS publications.
Template for Page Layout for AMS Books

A grid showing the basic requirements for the page layout, for many standardformat books, is available as a PDF file. This grid is designed particularly for authors who are not using TeX.

A good way to use the grid is to copy it onto a clear transparency for use as an overlay on the formatted output.

Some book series (in particular, Contemporary Mathematics) are now published in dual form (print and electronic) and must be prepared with AMSLaTeX; the grid should not be used for submissions to such series.

Tools for Reference Checking and Linking

Authors can access the MR Database to verify and create references that can link to MathSciNet items and original sources.

MRef is the free AMS tool for creating standard references with links to MathSciNet.

Input is unfielded, meaning that no special input format is required, beyond entering the author name(s) first.

Punctuation and formatting (e.g., TeX and HTML) is ignored.

MRef returns formatted bibliographic data together with active links to MathSciNet.

The formats include MathSciNet, BibTeX, and AMSRefs.

MR Lookup is another free tool for referencing and linking available from the AMS. Data can be retrieved in BibTeX format.
