Accessing MathSciNet through EBSCO Discovery Service and EBSCOhost

EBSCO is pleased to announce that we have partnered with the American Mathmatical Society (AMS) to bring the valuable metadata available through your MathSciNet® subscription to EBSCO Discovery Service (EDS).

All mutual MathSciNet and EDS customers will automatically have the new database enabled on both their EBSCOhost and EDS profiles.

What MathSciNet coverage is available via EBSCOhost?

MathSciNet is an electronic publication of the American Mathematical Society (AMS) 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.

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 3.1 million items and over 1.9 million direct links to original articles from over 1,800 journals and Bibliographic data from retrodigitized articles dates back to the early 1800s.

Content Includes:

  • Expert-written reviews of mathematical literature
  • More than 3.1 million items
  • More than 1.9 million direct links to original articles from over 1,800 journals
  • Bibliographic data from retrodigitized articles dates back to the early 1800s
  • More than 100,000 new items are added each year
Will I be able to link to the AMS MathSciNet platform from EBSCO?

Yes. Set-up includes providing CustomLinks from records in EBSCO profiles to the native MathSciNet interface. Please note that CustomLinks may not be enabled immediately and may take an additional 2 days to activate after the database appears on your profile. However, all detailed records automatically include active links to the AMS MathSciNet platform reviews and to AMS author profiles.

Can I create a direct URL to the MathSciNet database on EBSCOhost?

While you do have the option of providing your users with a direct link to MathSciNet on EBSCOhost, we are encourage customers to continue to link directly to the publisher’s platform.

I am an EBSCOhost customer, but do not currently subscribe to EDS. Can I take advantage of this opportunity?

Yes, upon request all mutual customers of MathSciNet and EBSCOhost Research Databases can be provided access to MathSciNet on EBSCOhost at no additional charge. Please contact your EBSCO representative for details.
