Making MathSciNet Work Harder for You!
- MathSciNet is a core index of the mathematical sciences literature, indexing books, journals and conference proceedings published since 1940. An interesting feature of this index that is not well known is that assignment of standard Institution and Mathematics Subject Classification Codes combined with the powerful searching capabilities of MathSciNet make possible the compilation of detailed demographic data about mathematical publishing. These codes can be used to compare the output between specific academic departments, institutions, or even countries over a period of time. Using Institution Codes associated with each author affiliated with a particular department at an institution, one can obtain a list of publications satisfying variables of interest. If the search is done in conjunction with a specific Mathematics Subject Classification Code assigned to each item reviewed, one can further narrow the result to determine the output within a specific area of study.
