The following databases will help you find articles on math and statistics topics.
These terms will be what the database uses to describe the concepts of the article. Use these terms in your search strategy to improve retrieval.
For example, if searching for safety issues for skyscraper construction, you'll discover that the EI Compendex database uses the controlled vocabulary term "Tall Buildings" for articles about skyscrapers. Adjusting the search to "safety and (skyscrapers or tall buildings)" will greatly increase the results. In the ABI/Inform database, the term "High rise buildings" is preferred, so the search should be adjusted to "safety and (skyscrapers or high rise buildings).
Use the AND operator to include a concept that will get just desirable articles while eliminating the undesirable
Redo the search strategy to exclude the keyword that is retrieving the undesirable articles
Instead of using a keyword, use a controlled vocabulary term (or subject heading, or descriptor) and limit that term to that field (controlled vocabulary, subject heading, descriptor).
Compendex will run a saved search strategy each week against the new items added to the database.
ABI/Inform will run a saved search strategy against the new items added to the database; you decide the frequency - daily, weekly, monthly or every 3 months.
Web of Science will send email notification if a specific article has been recently cited.
Most journals, for example, Journal of Applied Mechanics (published by ASME) will send an email alert when a new issue is published so the table of contents can be reviewed. Some journals also provide an RSS Feed for table of contents and/or news.
