MathSciNet online database publishes the coverage of Mathematical Reviews® and Current Mathematical Publications. Mathematical Reviews® is the most comprehensive database (the MRDB ) for the mathematical sciences; it is now maintained electronically. Information in the MRDB is published in several different formats.
Since its founding in 1940, Mathematical Reviews® (MR) has aimed to serve researchers and scholars in the mathematical sciences by providing timely information on articles, books and other published material that contain new contributions to mathematical research. In addition, the MRDB contains data on advanced-level textbooks and expository papers that may not contain new research, but that appear to be of interest to scholars and research mathematicians. It is MR policy to cover articles and books in other disciplines that contain new mathematical results or give novel and interesting applications of known mathematics. Elementary articles or books, or articles that have not been refereed are ordinarily not listed. Articles and books that are not in the published literature are not considered for coverage.
The bibliographical data for new items (monographs, collections, papers in journals and collections, etc., in paper and electronic formats) is carefully prepared and added to the MRDB on a daily basis. Wherever possible, links to online locations of electronic copies of the material are provided. Most items in the MRDB are classified in accordance with the Mathematics Subject Classification (MSC). Author names appearing in items added to the MRDB are given special attention; this, in particular, enables users of MR information to retrieve the publications of a given individual.
Each day, reviews are added to items in the MRDB. The majority of these items are peer-reviewed by experts selected by the MR editors. For some items, the reviewer (or MR editor) recommends that (an edited version of) the author's summary or other abstract from the text be used as a review, provided the selected text gives good guidance for the user of the MRDB on the content of the item. References in reviews to other items in the literature are associated with the MRDB entries for those items whenever possible.
MRDB entries for recent items in a selected list of journals include the complete reference list from the original item. Items in the reference lists are linked to the corresponding MRDB entries whenever possible.
Each reviewed item in the MRDB appears first as a bibliographic listing. A number of items that appear to be of interest are listed bibliographically in the MRDB but are not later given a review, although each is fully classified. The MRDB also includes a collection of unclassified items, which are not reviewed.
ESI users can determine the influential individuals, institutions, papers, publications, and countries in their field of study – as well as emerging research areas that could impact their work. ESI database can be accessed within the framework of TÁMOP 4.2.5 application won by Educatio Public Services Non-profit LLC, by institutes applying for it.
The JSTOR Archive features the complete back runs of over 1000 scholarly journals across over forty disciplines. Presently, JSTOR offers access to twelve multidisciplinary collections; the thirteenth collection will be released in June 2012.
With the “World Biographical Information System (WBIS) Online” K. G. Saur presents the most comprehensive and extensive biographical online library. The database can be accessed owing to the application TÁMOP 4.2.5-09/1-2010-0002 won by Educatio Public Services Nonprofit LLC. The database can be accessed freely by members of EIS consortium.
