GetMRef

## getMRef

The MR Number is a number (or pair of identifiers) used to uniquely identify a specific record in the Mathematical Reviews (MR) Database. Every item in the database has a seven-digit access number, and some items also have an additional identifier in parentheses following the seven-digit number for compatibility with the paper publication Mathematical Reviews.

Example: MR2025596 or MR2025596 (2004i:13026)

getMRef scans the bibliography section of an input .tex file, connect to the AMS BatchMref service http://www.ams.org/batchmref and adds a \MR{} command to the bibliography entry.

If a hyperref package is used, \MR{<num>} could be defined as:
\def\MR#1{\href{http://www.ams.org/mathscinet-getitem?mr=#1}{MR#1}}

This Python script requires python ver. 2.2

## BatchMRef

This service will let you upload .tex or .bbl file to get:

• original .tex file with added MR numbers;
• bibliography in BibTeX .bib format. Entries, found on MathSciNet, will be replaced with records from MathSciNet database;
• as above + entries translated into LaTeX (.bbl) using selected BibTeX style;
