I am currently attending the annual meeting of the Committee for Developing
Countries of the The European Mathematical Society.
I may write more on this in later posts but I wanted to mention one
point right away.
Zentralblatt MATH zbMATH is, in
their own words, "the world's most comprehensive and longest running
abstracting and reviewing service in pure and applied mathematics".
In addition, they are adding new features. An interesting example is
swMATH, which is a database on
mathematical software. This is a joint project with the Mathematical Research Institute
Oberwolfach, funded by the Leibniz Association.
EMS-CDC reports that some developing countries are eligible to get
free access to Zentralblatt services. Details of how this works is
described in this poster. The
eligible countries are given in this list.
