New features in MathSciNet

This month MathSciNet (an easily searchable database of reviews, abstracts and bibliographic information for much of the mathematical sciences literature) released several new features:

  • Improved display of mathematics using MathJax, an open source JavaScript display engine for mathematics that works in all modern browsers. MathSciNet now displays typeset mathematics directly in Web pages (eg. MR2463362).
  • Direct links to books, book chapters, and series using DOIs registered by publishers (eg. MR2526019).
  • Bibliographic entries and direct links for Ph.D. theses in mathematics, applied mathematics, and statistics from the ProQuest Dissertations & Theses database (eg. MR2713010).

MathSciNet, published by the American Mathematical Society, contains over 2 million items and over 1 million direct links to original articles. Bibliographic data from retrodigitized articles dates back to the early 1800s. Reference lists are collected and matched internally from approximately 450 journals, and citation data for journals, authors, articles and reviews is provided. This web of citations allows users to track the history and influence of research publications in the mathematical sciences.
