INSPIRE links to MathSciNet

INSPIRE, the information system for high energy physics run by CERN, DESY, Fermilab, SLAC, and IHEP, now has links to the MathSciNet entries for over 86,000 papers in their database.  The linking is only one way (INSPIRE ⇒ MathSciNet).

Thanks are due, in particular, to Heath O’Connell from FermiLab who worked with our IT department to set up the matching.

How it works

Every listing in INSPIRE contains bibliographic information for the paper.  For a published paper, there will be a link to that version through the DOI.  If there is a version on the arXiv, there will be a link to that.  When possible, INSPIRE will add the abstract, information about figures, some keywords, and other information.  Below the main box are some links, such as to the cross-listing on the ADS website seen below and the export options, such as BibTeX, MARC, and others.  When it exists, the link to MathSciNet is in the bottom left, as indicated in the screenshot below.  Clicking on that link brings you to the listing of the paper in MathSciNet.

Example of how to find the MathSciNet link in a listing in INSPIRE

Some examples

The following examples were found by exploring a spreadsheet with one third of all the matches in it.  The only information was the DOI, the INSPIRE ID, and the MR Number for the item in MathSciNet.  In other words, they are fairly random.

Thank you again to the people at INSPIRE for helping with this project.
