My first column appears in the February 2019 issue of the Notices of the American Mathematical Society. The article considers the mathematics literature from the perspective of Mathematical Reviews. Some themes that have appeared in this blog are covered in the article, but with more detail: the literature is growing; it is complicated; bibliometrics are not a panacea; the right way to understand the literature is to engage with it, preferably with the help of experts. The column is scheduled to appear quarterly.
The opinions expressed on this blog are the views of the writer(s) and do not necessarily reflect the views and opinions of the American Mathematical Society.
