A research guide to scholarly materials located within library resources.

Databases for Math

MathSciNet - is the primary search tool for finding articles, conference proceedings, reviews, and journal articles in the field of mathematics. 

Web of Science - covers highly used and highly cited scholarly materials in science back to 1908.  Web of Science also indexes the social science and arts and humanities, making it a great tool for finding scholarly materials across multiple diciplines.  

Google Scholar -is Google's searching across scholarly journals and books, and is great for searching across multiple disciplines.

Academic Search - is Microsoft's answer to Google Scholar.

Directory of Open Access Journals: Mathematics - The aim of the Directory of Open Access Journals is to increase the visibility and ease of use of open access scientific and scholarly journals thereby promoting their increased usage and impact.  DOAJ journals are high quality, yet freely available.Check for their peer-review status on a case-by-case basis.

arXiv is a great resource for up-to-the-minute articles (pre-prints) across the sciences. Note that these articles are moderated, but not peer-reviewed (yet)

Finding Scholarly, Peer-Reviewed Articles

When you want to find articles about topics in your area of interest, use the databases for that subject. Databases are search engines for journal articles, newspaper articles, book reviews, dissertations, and (sometimes) gray literature on specific topics or disciplines.

Most databases are subject- or discipline-specific, but don't forget to try out databases that search across disciplines in order to maximize your ability to find materials. Examples of interdisciplinary databases are Academic Search Premier and JSTOR.  Lots of things we'll own online, but for the things we do not own online, make sure to place a request for that item through Resource Sharing

Browse Electronic Journals

Easily browse mathematics articles online through our electronic journals portal, located here.  Search for individual titles in the search box, or browse the journals by category using the drop down menu below the search box.  

Watch this short video here for a demonstration on how to browse the math journals we own online - here.

Claremont Resources

Honnold Library and the Claremont Center for the Mathematical Sciences built a lab for math and GIS!

The CCMS Software Lab is a collaborative consortium-wide effort that provides timely and much needed software support to any member of the Claremont community who requests it.
