New MathSciNet Features for 2017

The American Mathematical Society is pleased to announce the following enhancements to MathSciNet.
These new features are some of the most asked-for improvements to our user interface, and are part of a series of upgrades that we'll be introducing throughout 2017 and beyond.
Available January 3:

Search Result Sorting and Faceting

  • Search result lists will be sortable in a number of different ways, such as forward and reverse chronologically and by citations.
  • Search result lists will now include facets that allow users to filter and refine searches by author, journal, or year. Users will be able to "search within results" to refine their queries even further.
  • Watch a video explaining some of the new sorting and faceting improvements.

Coming in Summer 2017:

Search Result Alerts

  • Users will be able to log in and create email alerts that will send them any new results for queries that they create. This will allow users to be notified when, for example, an author's citations count changes, or a new issue is added to a journal.

Autosuggest for Journals and Author Search Boxes

  • MathSciNet's journals and author search boxes will now suggest useful search strings for journal titles and author names.

About MathSciNet:

The scholarly literature of mathematics is expanding at a geometric rate. Faced with this deluge of data, how can students and researchers find and access the best, most reliable research?

MathSciNet, an online publication of the American Mathematical Society, combines powerful search functionality with the authority of a team of trained mathematicians, editors and over 19,000 active reviewers. These professionals make MathSciNet the most reliable source in the field.

MathSciNet contains information on over 3 million articles and books, with direct links to almost 2 million articles in over 1,800 journals.  MathSciNet includes expert reviews, disambiguated author profiles, and citation information on articles, books, journals, and authors.

MathSciNet's resources are essential for anyone doing research in mathematics or allied fields, from the undergraduate to the seasoned researcher. It can be used to:

  • Quickly get up to speed on a new topic
  • Look up a researcher’s body of work (and find his/her Erdős number!)
  • Find an article or book and track its reference list
  • Research a math department to prepare for a job interview
