Mathematics Literature Databases
Literature Databases provide a detailed and complete overview over the publications in a field. The world's most complete and longest running abstracting and reviewing service in mathematics is Zentralblatt MATH with more than 3 million entries from 1826 till today. There are also community-specific services as MathEDUC for mathematical education, STMA-Z for statistics, io-port for computer science and many more.
Zentralblatt MATH is the world’s biggest and most comprehensive reference database in mathematical research, dating back to 1868. Convenient search facilities as well as links to the electronic versions of the articles and to document delivery systems make this database a unique information service in mathematical research and a navigation tool in mathematical literature.
The »Jahrbuch über die Fortschritte der Mathematik« was the first comprehensive reviewing journal in mathematics worldwide. It was published 1869–1945. The database contains the complete content consisting of bibliographic data and reviews of about 223,000 documents of the period 1868–1942. Many documents in the database are supplemented with translated titles, keywords, classification codes, remarks, and links to full texts.
MathEduc (formerly MATHDI) is the only international reference database offering a world-wide overview of current and recent literature on mathematics and computer science education.
STMA-Z is an international reference database in statistics targeted at the statistics community and the users of statistical methods. The structure and the facilities are the same as for Zentralblatt MATH, and both services overlap in the area of mathematical statistics.
In collaboration with partners, among them the Gesellschaft für Informatik, the University of Trier and international publishers, FIZ Karlsruhe offers a web portal for computer science. io-port.net pools information from several computer science sources (among them our CompuScience file) which formerly had only been available separately. The portal provides access to more than one million publications from these sources in a standardized format, covering all areas of computer science and related disciplines. The portal is constantly updated with additional content.
