MathSciNet is an electronic publication offering access to a carefully maintained and easily searchable database of reviews, abstracts and bibliographic information for much of the mathematical sciences literature. Over 100,000 new items are added each year, most of them classified according to the Mathematics Subject Classification. Authors are uniquely identified, enabling a search for publications by individual author rather than by name string.
Continuing in the tradition of the paper publication, Mathematical Reviews (MR), which was first published in 1940, expert reviewers are selected by a staff of professional mathematicians to write reviews of the current published literature; over 40,000 reviews are added to the database each year. Extending the MR tradition, MathSciNet 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.
MathSciNet now contains bibliographic data and direct links for Ph.D. theses published in Mathematics, Applied Mathematics and Statistics from the ProQuest Dissertations & Theses database.
Citations for MathSciNet items can be viewed/downloaded in EndNote, AMSRefs, BibTeX and ASCII formats.
You may choose to view or download citations for up to 50 item. This can be done by selecting Citations (ASCII), Citations (BibTeX), Citations (AMSRefs), or Citations (EndNote) from the pull-down menu located next to Batch download: and then clicking on Retrieve First 50. If there are fewer than 50 items in the list, all of them will be displayed. Alternatively, you may mark up to 50 individual items and then retrieve them. Click in the boxes to the left of all items you want to view/download and then click the Retrieve Marked button.
Once you have the list of citations displayed in the desired format, use the File | Save As function in your browser to download the file.
