Finding Mathematics Journals

Hawaii Voyager

The online catalog of the University of Hawaii libraries. To find a journal title, go to Basic Search and perform a title search. If you are unsure about the title, use keywords from the title or search on the ISSN as a keyword, ex: 0025 and 5831 retrieves a record for the journal Mathematische annalen.

Electronic Journals at UH Manoa

Use this database to find electronic journals and databases that are available through the library. Once the link to a journal or database is retrieved, you will login to connect to the UHM Library proxy server. Many of the licensed resources are only accessible outside of the library to UHM faculty, students, and staff.

Search the AMS Journals Database

A searchable database to find information about journals and serials indexed by Mathematical Reviews. One can enter the abbreviated title, full-title or ISSN.

Zentralblatt für Mathematik Journal Abbreviations

An alphabetized list of abbreviations of journals and serials that are indexed by Zentralblatt für Mathematik, with full-title information and ISSN's. Zentralblatt has some titles that are not listed by Math Reviews.

MR Lookup

Verify a citation using MR Lookup.

Literature Indexes


A core review and indexing source in mathematics with coverage on an international scope beginning in 1940. No longer a print subscription, older volumes are held at call number QA 1 .M42 in the 3rd floor cage of the Science and Technology Department. If you need to use these print archives ask a Sci/Tech staff member for help.

JSTOR Arts & Sciences Collection I

JSTOR provides full-text journal backfiles to many core mathematics and statistics scholarly journals.

Web of Science

A multidisciplinary index in which the most highly cited mathematical journals are indexed. Online coverage is available from 1980 to the present. Also known as Science Citation Index in print. The Hamilton Library holdings go back to 1964 in the print format and can be found at call number Z7401 .S365 in Science & Technology Reference, 1st Floor Hamilton Library Addition.

IEEE Xplore

Full text of IEEE Society sponsored journals, conferences, proceedings. An excellent source for applied mathematics papers. UH Manoa access includes IEEE publications back to 1998.

Zentralblatt für Mathematik

Database covering mathematical literature from 1931 to present, accessed via the Cornell University mirror site, which allows non-subscribers to retrieve up to three records. Useful to find papers not indexed by Mathscinet, such as translations of papers indexed in Mathscinet, or papers published between 1931-1940.

Jahrbuch über die Fortschritte der Mathematik

This database, the Jahrbuch Project, covers mathematics literature published between 1868-1942 with links to digital collections at Cornell University Library, Goettingen, Bibliotheque Nationale de France, JSTOR, and the University of Michigan Library. The European Mathematical Society hosts this globally available database.

Catalogue of Scientific Papers

Indexes papers published between 1800-1900. A subject volume is devoted to mathematics. Located in the Science and Technology Department of the Hamilton Library, 1st Floor Addition, at call number Z 7403.R88 or online through the Bibliotheque Nationale de France Gallica at Recherche on catalogue of scientific papers to locate the pages you need. (Because BNF does not now offer an easily searchable format the print format in the library is recommended.)


A free, globally available index that focuses on computer science papers, hosted by NEC Research Institute. Provides bibliographic citations, as well as citation counts to the papers indexed.


The online format of the bibliographic indexing of Zentralblatt für Didaktik der Mathematik. Indexes the literature in mathematical education and related fields from approximately 500 journals and serials from 1976 to the present. Non-subscribers can retrieve one citation for each search. A useful tool for checking on citations not found in Mathscinet. To access the articles UHM must request them through Interlibrary Loan.

Encyclopedias and Data Sources

Wolfram MathWorld

Created by Eric Weisstein, the editor of the CRC Concise Encyclopedia of Mathematics, this site has grown to include the contributions of many mathematicians, and is updated daily. The 1999 edition of the print encyclopedia is available in SciTech Reference at QA5 .W45 1999

Handbook of Mathematical Functions with Formulas, Graphs and Mathematical Tables, volume 55 of National Bureau of Standards Applied Mathematics Series by M. Abramowitz and I. Stegun.

One of the most highly cited sources of mathematical functions in applied mathematics research. The print copy is in SciTech Reference at call number QA55 .A2 1965.
