Add Items to the Clipboard

From a headline list or full item page, click on the Clipboard link. On both the headline list page and the full item page, this icon is located under the bibliographic information.

Each headline list or full item page contains the total number of items in your Clipboard, if greater than zero, at the upper left under the MathSciNet banner.

Example: View clipboard: 12 items

The number of items in the Clipboard is incremented each time a subsequent addition is made.

The clipboard will help you avoid adding duplicate citations. If you attempt to add an item that already exists in your clipboard, the item will not be added to the clipboard.

The items in the Clipboard are presented in the following order: first the unauthored items, in order of publication date, then the authored items in alphabetical order by first author and, within a given author's publications, in publication date order.
