Research Tip Sheet - for systematically searching academic databases (+ video tutorial | 2:25 | *transcript*)

### Mathematics & Statistics Databases

- American Mathematical Society Journals - probability, geometry, applied mathematics, computation, and mathematical statistics
- MathSciNet | Guide to Searching MathSciNet- Reviews and citations for articles and books in mathematics. Items are classified using the Mathematics Subject Classification
- Project Euclid - Journals, monographs, and conference proceedings in theoretical and applied mathematics and statistics
- SIAM Journals Online - Journals from the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics
- zbMATH - Reviews and citations for articles and books in pure and applied mathematics. Carleton does not have a subscription, but the first three results of every search are displayed for free. Uses the same Mathematics Subject Classification as MathSciNet

### Interdisciplinary Databases

These are large databases that provide access to citations for articles and books in diverse areas, including mathematics and statistics content

- arXiv - An eprint server hosted by Cornell University, with significant content in mathematics and some in statistics
- Google Scholar
- Scholars Portal Journals
- Scopus
- SpringerLink - Sciences and Engineering
- Web of Science

### Theses and Dissertations

- CURVE - Includes Carleton theses and dissertations, as well as other research deposited by faculty, staff, and students
- Dissertations and Theses Global - Theses and dissertations from around the world
- Foreign Doctoral Dissertations - Indexes non-North American graduate and doctoral theses
- Other sources for Theses and Dissertations
