Mathematics has it's own Subject Classification system to help people find articles and other materials on specific subjects. Mostly used in Mathematical Reviews (MathSciNet) and Zentrallblatt MATH, it is a useful classification system to know.



Mathematics Databases

  • Mathematical Reviews  (MathSciNet) The best database for English language reviews and commentary on the Mathematical literature. Also    called MathSciNet, it includes Current Mathematical Publications.
  • Mathematics at
  • The universally used preprint archive, this is the best place to get brand new papers, before they are published.
  • ISI Web of Science
    The best general science database.
  • Electronic Research Archive for Mathematics (The Jahrbuch Project)
    A digital library for classical mathematics in the World Wide Web. It consists of a complete electronic catalogue of the mathematical publications in the time period between 1868 - 1942 (JFM database) and a digital archive storing the most relevant publications from that period. The two components are linked very closely.
  • JSTOR Mathematics
    JSTOR is an online storage facility for older journals in many disciplines. This link brings you to a list of all the Mathematics titles and years that are in the JSTOR collection.
  • The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences
    Help for identifying integer sequences.
  • Zentralblatt MATH
    Zentralblatt MATH is the world's most complete and longest running abstracting and reviewing service in pure and applied mathematics. While Northeastern does not have access to it, you can use it to get the first three results of a query.
