The American Mathematical Society is pleased to announce the following upcoming enhancements to MathSciNet.
These new features are some of the most asked-for improvements to MathSciNet interface, and are part of a series of upgrades that the American Mathematical Society will introduce throughout 2017 and beyond. This first set of new features will be available to users in January.  The upcoming features include:
  • Search Result Sorting and Faceting: Search result lists will be sortable in a number of different ways, such as chronologically and by citations. Search result lists will now include facets that allow users to filter and refine searches by author, journal, or year. Users will be able to "search within results" to refine their queries even further.
  • Search Result Alerts: Users will be able to log in and create email alerts that will send them any new results for queries that they create. This will allow users to be notified when, for example, an author's citations count changes, or a new issue is added to a journal.
  • Autosuggest for Journals and Author Search Boxes: MathSciNet's journals and author search boxes will now suggest useful search strings for journal titles and author names.
