Mathematics, Statistics and Actuarial Science


MathSciNet is a database of reviews, abstracts and bibliographic information for the mathematical sciences literature. Over 100,000 new items are added each year. Currently, MathSciNet contains more than 3 million items, with live links to nearly 2 million original articles. Reference lists are collected and matched internally from approximately 550 journals, and citation data for journals, authors, articles and reviews are provided. This network of over 9 million citations allows users to track the history and influence of research publications in the mathematical sciences. Unique identification of authors (by their MR Author ID) ensures that researchers may also search for publications by a specific author with confidence that the results will be accurate.

Web of Science, Scopus and Science Direct

While some databases are actual collections of online content, others are indexes of articles or other materials. Databases such as Scopus and Web of Science contain citations to the material. Index/citation databases help you discover and identify useful articles for your topic.
