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 4 million articles and books, with direct links to over 2.7 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
