Articles (Research Databases)

MathSciNET (Mathematical Reviews) go! info Available Online

a database of bibliographic information and reviews (summaries) for mathematical research literature created and maintained by the American Mathematical Society. Includes books, 1700 journals and serials, conference proceedings. For help in searching see http://www.ams.org/mathscinet/help/FAQ.html and see also http://www.math.ou.edu/~kmartin/mr.html

Project MUSE go! info Available Online

contains full-text articles published in over 100 journals from from Johns Hopkins University Press and other university and academic publishers.

Web of Science (Science Citation Index) go! info

contains citations; 70% of which include abstracts; also includes the articles’ cited reference list (i.e.bibliography).

Google Scholar Advanced Scholar Search go! info Available Online

This specialized Google resource supplements the proprietary databases such as ACM, ScienceDirect, etc. Google describes this as:

“What is Google Scholar?

Google Scholar provides a simple way to broadly search for scholarly literature. From one place, you can search across many disciplines and sources: articles, theses, books, abstracts and court opinions, from academic publishers, professional societies, online repositories, universities and other web sites. Google Scholar helps you find relevant work across the world of scholarly research.”

Please note: On campus users can use the “Find Text @ CSUEB” link to access or request articles. You can use the “Scholar Preferences” to use the Find Text link. To do so, click on “Scholar Preferences” in the upper right of the scholar.google.com screen, then enter Cal State University, East Bay in the Library Links box. Click on Save Preferences.

arxiv.org – Mathematics go! Available Online

from the arXiv primer: “arXiv is an openly accessible, moderated repository for scholarly articles in specific scientific disciplines. Material submitted to arXiv is expected to be of interest, relevance, and value to those disciplines. arXiv reserves the right to reject or reclassify any submission. Submissions are reviewed by expert moderators to verify that they are topical and refereeable scientific contributions that follow accepted standards of scholarly communication (as exemplified by conventional journal articles).” Please note: the papers available via arXiv are essentially in pre-publication and therefore not fully peer-reviewed.

See http://arxiv.org for easy access to the full database (including papers in physics, nonlinear sciences, computer science, quantitative biology, quantitative finance, and statistics.)

Associations

American Mathematical Society (AMS) go! Available Online

The American Mathematical Society was founded in 1888 and its mission is to “promote mathematical research and its uses, strengthen mathematical education, and foster awareness and appreciation of mathematics and its connections to other disciplines and to everyday life.”

Mathematical Association of America (MAA) go! Available Online

“Since 1915, MAA membership has provided a forum for educators, students, professionals, and math enthusiasts to share ideas, keep abreast of developments in the mathematical community, enhance their careers, and make new friends.”

The Association for Women in Mathematics (AWM) go! info Available Online

from the AWM site:The purpose of the Association for Women in Mathematics is to encourage women and girls to study and to have active careers in the mathematical sciences, and to promote equal opportunity and the equal treatment of women and girls in the mathematical sciences.

“AWM currently has more than 3000 members (women and men) representing a broad spectrum of the mathematical community — from the United States and around the world!”

Cornell University Library Historical Math Book Collection go! Available Online

“a collection of selected monographs with expired copyrights chosen from the mathematics field. These were monographs that were brittle and decaying and in need of rescue.” See http://dlxs2.library.cornell.edu/m/math/about.php for more information.

Google Science/Math Directory go! Available Online

a directory of links to open web resources in the field of mathematics

Math Archives go! Available Online

hosted by the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, Department of Mathematics, this provides links to math topics, software, teaching materials, etc.

Sloane’s On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences go!

What comes next after 1, 2, 4, 9, 20, 48, 115, 286, 719, … ? (for example). This is the place to find out!” and “Most people use this web site to get information about a particular number sequence. If you are a new visitor, then you might ask the database if it can recognize your favorite sequence, if you have one. To do this, go to the main look-up page. (Of course, the number sequence should be well-defined, of general interest and ideally it should be infinite. Short sequences such as phone numbers are not appropriate.)”

World of Mathematics go!

Also known as MathWorld, this site is a “comprehensive,
and interactive mathematics encyclopedia intended for students, educators, math enthusiasts, and researchers.”

Yahoo! Science/Mathematics go! Available Online

the Yahoo! directory of links to open websites on the topic of Mathematics.
