Help for Math Reviews Institution Code Lookup
Most items in Mathematical Reviews (MR) and Current Mathematical Publications (CMP)
include institution address codes. An institution code is used to abbreviate the address
given by the author in
the item (and in MR to indicate the reviewer location for some reviewers). A code consists
of two [or three] parts separated by hyphens; these parts designate the country, the
university or institution
[and the department]. For five countries, the country designation consists of a single
digit; these countries are 1 - USA, 3 - Canada, 4 - United Kingdom, 5 - Australia and 6 -
Sometimes an institution code is made invalid or retired. Invalid codes are those which
were incorrect or redundant. A cross-reference from the invalid code to the valid code
will be given in the form
"(Invalid: use X-XXX)". A retired code is one which was once acceptable but due
to changes in the university, city, or country name will not be used in the future. A
cross-reference from the retired
code to the new code will be given in the form "(Retired: use Y-YYY)".
