Ejournal and database news for math, January 2017

Wiley negotiations: We now have university-wide access to all of the Wiley electronic journals subscribed to by either Becker Library or University Libraries. More info: Announcing Cross-Campus Access to Wiley E-Journals. Becker Medical Library Catalog and ejournals lists have been updated. WU Libraries catalog and ejournals list will be updated soon.

AMS Open Math Notes, a new repository of freely downloadable mathematical works in progress hosted by the American Mathematical Society. It contains draft works include course notes, textbooks, and research expositions in progress. Copyright remains with the author; this site specifies that items should not be published elsewhere so I asked and was told “AMS Open Math Notes site does allow double postings on other free access sites, such as institutional repositories.” I’d love to hear if you post materials here so I can add them to Publications from WU Math Dept lists. And if you want your items on Open Math Notes added to Open Scholarship, let me know.

Bernoulli, v.16, 2010+; on Project Euclid site; disseminated by the Institute of Mathematical Statistics on behalf of the Bernoulli Society for Mathematical Statistics and Probability

Current Index to Statistics (CIS) is now open access; it will be shut down Dec. 31, 2019.

Internet Mathematics is now an open access arXiv overlay journal. It sounds like previous issues will eventually be freely available also. More info

Mathematical Finance, v.7, 1997+; Wiley.

Memoirs of the American Mathematical Society, no. 1, 1950+; access to all backfiles added online; we still have most of 1950-2009 in paper volumes in Olin Library; expect future discussions about whether to withdraw those volumes.

MathSciNet in the news:

  • Things Have Changed, by Edward Dunne on Beyond Reviews: Inside MathSciNet, about the changes in sorting and searching and other features now available on MathSciNet (via AMS); MathSciNet (via EbscoHost) is also available.
  • MathSciNet review in The Charleston Advisor
