From the American Mathematical Society, an easy to search database of reviews, abstracts and bibliographic information covering the mathematical sciences literature.
MathSciNet is an electronic publication offering access to a carefully maintained and easily searchable database of reviews, abstracts and bibliographic information for much of the mathematical sciences literature. Over 100,000 new items are added each year, most of them classified according to the Mathematics Subject Classification. Authors are uniquely identified, enabling a search for publications by individual author rather than by name string. Continuing in the tradition of the paper publication, Mathematical Reviews (MR), which was first published in 1940, expert reviewers are selected by a staff of professional mathematicians to write reviews of the current published literature over 40,000 reviews are added to the database each year. Extending the MR tradition, MathSciNet contains over 2 million items and over 1 million direct links to original articles. Bibliographic data from retrodigitized articles dates back to the early 1800s. Reference lists are collected and matched internally from over 400 journals, and citation data for journals, authors, articles and reviews is provided.
Good for interdisciplinary subjects, searching for authors and tracking down citations
Scopus is the largest abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature and quality web sources with smart tools to track, analyze and visualize research. Updated daily, Scopus covers nearly 18,000 titles from more than 5,000 international publishers, including coverage of 16,500 peer-reviewed journals and 3.6 million conference papers. Scopus contains 40 million records, of which 20 million records going back to 1996 include the complete metadata and 20 million pre-1996 records without references.
Bibliographic science focused database that provides a comprehensive citation search.
Web of Science (previously known as Web of Knowledge) is the Thomson Reuters database platform that provides access to the combined online versions of Arts & Humanities Citation Index (1975-current), Science Citation Index Expanded (1899-current), Social Sciences Citation Index (1898-current) and Conference Proceedings Citation Index - Science(1990-current) - together with BIOSIS Previews (1969-current), Medline (1950-current) and Journal Citation Reports (2000-current).
Google Scholar provides a simple way to broadly search for scholarly literature.
Using this link to access Google Scholar, you will see “is it @ Liverpool” next to results.
Clicking ''Is it @ Liverpool' will provide a link to the access the article, if University of Liverpool Library has licenced (i.e. paid-for) access to it.
