MathSciNet: New features expand ease-of-use
MathSciNet, the primary databases for mathematical sciences literature, offers some new features.
- Search results can now be sorted by publication date, journal title or number of citations.
- New facets allow users to filter and refine results by item type, author, institution, journal, date and primary classification.
The AMS has announced that more upgrades are on their way, including search alerts. When this feature arrives, users will be able to get notifications about author citation counts, new issues and new results to saved searches.
