MathSciNet is a database from the American Mathematical Society (AMS) that contains 2.8 million reviews and abstracts from math publications (1.6 million of these have direct links to the article or item!) Unlike most other abstracting databases, MathSciNet takes care to identify authors properly.Its author search allows the user to find publications associated with a given author record, even if multiple authors have exactly the same name. Math Reviewspersonnel will sometimes even contact authors to ensure that the database has correctly attributed their papers. On the other hand, the general search menu uses string matching in all fields, including the author field. Reviews or bibliographical information on selected articles is included from many Engineering, Computer Science and other applied journals abstracted by MathSciNet.
