Mailing List Rentals

Our list of mathematicians and other scientists is quite likely the richest source of successful prominent researchers and educators you'll find anywhere. With our help, you can mail to heads of departments, or any of 63 groups of math specialists. Best of all, our lists are updated daily!

Math Specialists, Combined Membership List and AMS member lists (see below):

Non-member - $195/M;

Institutional or Individual Member - $156/M

Corporate Members $176/M

Institutional Associates - $185/M

Combined Membership List - $210/M.

General Information

Lists are merged and sorted in zip code order, unless specified otherwise.

There is a $300 minimum charge for lists of individuals. Prices are subject to change.

There is a minimum charge for at least 500 names in each separate list, unless otherwise noted. However, lists can be combined and merged to your specifications. Partial lists selected by zip codes, geographical areas, alphabetical order, or nth name are available upon request at an additional $15/M. Keycoding (special identifying codes of up to ten characters) can be ordered on any list for an additional $15/M.

If a mailing piece is returned by the USPS as undeliverable, please notify us. We will remove the name from our lists until we have obtained a new address. We will refund 25 cents per name for any returns above 1% of the list rented.

Please note: Mailing lists of the AMS are rented for one-time use only and are not to be copied for reuse or incorporation into other lists without the permission of the Society.

 

Individual Lists

AMS Members
A membership list of the oldest society in the United States for professional mathematicians.

Total count:   26,074

Distribution:  18,760 (U.S.); 1,383 (Canada); 5,931 (other)

Combined Membership List
The most comprehensive list of mathematical scientists, including members of the American Mathematical Society (AMS), Mathematical Association of America (MAA), the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM), American Mathematical Association of Two-Year Colleges (AMATYC) and the Association for Women in Mathematics(AWM). (Note: Some individuals belong to more than one organization, which accounts for the seeming discrepancies in the counts listed.)

Total count: 41,653

Distribution:  30,405 (U.S.); 2,186 (Canada); 9,062 (other); 26,074 (AMS); 9,571 (MAA); 10,451 (SIAM); 1,377 (AMATYC); 818 (AWM)

Mathematical Specialists
For more specialized announcements, mailing lists of individuals are available according to area of mathematical interest. Approximately 39% of the listed names are AMS members. The lists also include subscribers, participants at special meetings and seminars, reviewers, and buyers of AMS products. The geographical distribution of the list is approximately 71% U.S. and Canada and 29% other.

A mailing list may be ordered consisting of any combination of specialties. Such a list has no duplications. (Note that because each individual may choose more than one area of specialization, we cannot determine in advance the size of a mailing list that combines two or more areas.)

Institutional Lists

Heads of Mathematics and Related Departments
The AMS annually compiles lists of department heads in the United States and Canada (with just a few other foreign addresses) for its publication Mathematical Sciences Professional Directory. The chart below indicates the categories into which these lists are broken down, with the approximate counts for each category.

Lists may be ordered by specifying one of the following: 
 

  • any of the departments listed in columns A-D below.
  • the highest degree granted by the departments as listed in rows 1-6 below.
  • any desired combination of degree and department.

Combinations may be specified in writing or by printing the chart and circling the desired combinations. All combinations are merged in zip code order unless specified otherwise.
