We are proud to publish one of the most respectable collections of mathematical literature in the world. The AMS Book Program began with our Colloquium series, which has its roots in the famous 1894 lectures of Felix Klein. Mathematical Surveys followed, as well as conference proceedings, volumes from summer workshops, and regular translations, especially from Russian.
Since the early 1990s, the AMS has added additional monograph and copublication series (including Graduate Studies in Mathematics, Student Mathematical Library, Clay Mathematics, and Courant Lecture Notes).

The publication of Notices of the AMS and Bulletin of the AMS is a significant service to the mathematics community. They are the most widely distributed and read high-level mathematics journals in the world. Both are "open access" that is, they are freely available online to all members and non-members alike and are widely accessed throughout the world.
Primary Research Journals
Expert editorial boards and consistent high scientific standards in refereeing and accepting articles characterize the high quality of the Journal of the AMS, Mathematics of Computation, Proceedings of the AMS, and Transactions of the AMS. Searchable electronic versions of our journals are available, with bibliographic information, abstracts, and full reference lists with links to Mathematical Reviews® all freely accessible.
The AMS has a long tradition of publishing translation journals. Sugaku contains selected articles translated from the Japanese journal of the same name. St. Petersburg Mathematical Journal, Theory of Probability and Mathematical Statistics, and Transactions of the Moscow Mathematical Society are translated from Russian, with searchable electronic versions also available.
Conformal Geometry and Dynamics and Representation Theory are published in electronic format only. Access to these journals is also available to any subscriber of the primary AMS journals, and hence they have wide circulation.
Mathematical Reviews® (MR) was founded by mathematician Otto Neugebauer in 1940 and contains reviews, abstracts, and bibliographic information for much of the world's mathematical sciences literature. MRis a huge database of more than 2 million items, with over 100,000 new items added each year.
MR's companion software, MathSciNet, not only puts this information at your fingertips but also provides over 1 million direct links to original articles and bibliographic data from retrodigitized articles dating back to the early 1800s. In addition to its collection of publications, MR maintains a database of authors, another of journals, and yet another of citations.
