MathSciNet® Subscriptions

MathSciNet is the authoritative gateway to the literature of Mathematics. MathSciNet contains over 3.9 million items and 2.6 million direct links to original articles in more than 4,000 journals from over 250 publishers. Over 110,000 new items are added each year with most of them classified according to the Mathematics Subject Classification. Each year, over 80,000 reviews are added, written by experts around the world. Reference lists are collected and matched internally from over 500 journals. Navigation is simple within MathSciNet's wealth of internal links. The MR Author Database enables searching by verified individuals rather than name strings. For more information about MathSciNet, visit the MathSciNet About page, subscribe to our blog, Beyond Reviews: Inside MathSciNet, or follow us on Facebook or YouTube.

MathSciNet Consortia Pricing

The American Mathematical Society offers consortia pricing for MathSciNet—the premier source for searching the world's mathematical literature. Consortia pricing was established to increase access to the database to the mathematical community.

There are now over 120 consortia worldwide with more than 2,000 academic institutions that enjoy access to MathSciNet. These institutions include public and private colleges and universities, community colleges, satellite campuses, and corporations.

The minimum fee assessed per institution for 2022 is US$373.13 and the maximum is US$13,083.50. Single subscriber rate for 2022 is US$14,576.00.

MathSciNet Consortia Pricing Principles

Consortia pricing should benefit all consortia participants. Consortia may redistribute the fees, keeping in mind that no institution should pay more than the maximum nor less than the minimum. We recommend that the fees be distributed so that a site that would have paid the maximum fee receives some reduction which is then distributed among the sites who are assessed the lowest fees. For guidelines for the assignment of consortium fees, please send us an email and we will be happy to assist you.

Access to MathSciNet for all subscribers is sitewide, via IP authentication, with no limits on simultaneous users or length of time connected to the database.


The AMS requires a signed license agreement for MathSciNet and other electronic publications. The MathSciNet Consortium License Agreement may be downloaded by the host site or the main contact person for the Consortium to complete and return to the AMS.

The Exhibit A: Acknowledgment of Terms and Conditions may also be downloaded for each member of the consortium to complete and return to the AMS.

Assistance and Information

The AMS is pleased to consider any consortia requests and will provide subscription price quotes for any group, even those composed of all new subscribers. We make every effort to help small institutions to either form new consortia or join an existing one.
