1 Abuzar Ghaffari Introduction & Training – May 2007 AMERICAN MATHEMATICAL SOCIETY AMS - MATHSCINET

2 AMS- MathSciNet Introduction Training Please Choose from Menu:

3 American Mathematical Society  Founded in 1888  Mission:  Promote mathematical research and its uses  Strengthen mathematical education  Foster awareness and appreciation of mathematics and its connections to other disciplines and to everyday life  Over 28,000 individual members and 550 institutional members  Professional programs such as:  Meetings and Conferences  Surveys  Employment services  Publications including Mathematical Reviews  Journals  Over 3,000 books in print  Support for Young Scholars Programs  And ….

4 Mathematical Reviews Database  Since 1940  Mathematical Reviews(MR)  Served researchers and scholars in the mathematical sciences  By providing timely information on articles and books that contain new contributions to mathematical research  Is now maintained electronically  Classified according to the 2000 Mathematics Subject Classification (MSC)  Over 65,000 reviews or abstracts are published each year

5 What is MathSciNet?  Mathematical Reviews is available to:  Individuals  Institutions That have paid the annual Database Fee (DAF)  The MR database is available:  Electronically on MathSciNet  MathSci on CD  In fact: MathSciNet = Full Electronically Version of MR-database with all Benefits and Components…

7 Search Methods Search Terms Publication Types Publish range

8 Authors & Journals Tabs Search MathSciNet by Author Name Search MathSciNet by one of Journal Information

9 Author & Journal Citations Tabs Search MathSciNet by Author Citations Search MathSciNet by Journal Citations

10 Publication Search Advanced Search with All Publication components

11 Search Example 1- For example: Select the review Text field 2- Enter a keyword (example: algorithm) 3- Click on Search button Select Publication Type Select Publish Time

12 Results Page Number of Match Records Current Results Next Pages Download Format Numbers indicate a review is available Author(s) name Source and publish date

13 A Result Components Article No in MathSciNet Author(s) Name Article Title Publication Information (Type, Page, Year, Ver, …) Link to a PDF of review – not the article Journal LinkArticle Link Major Identity of Article in MathSciNet (MR-database)

14 Review of Article Highlighted Keywords

15 PDF Link

16 Clipboard  Useful to collect citations of interest together in one place, and then download them into whichever format you use for your research (ASCII, pdf, BibTeX, etc.)  Can collect up to 500 at any one time

17 Review Styles in MathSciNet  There are 3 styles for reviews in MathSciNet:  Review is available  {A review for this item is in process.}  {There will be no review of this item.}

18 Review Formats & Meta Link For users without a MathSciNet license, Relay Station allows linking from MR numbers in online mathematical literature directly to electronic journals and original articles. Subscribers receive the added value of full MathSciNet reviews.MathSciNet license
