Mathematics Subject Classification (MSC) Codes

  • The codes correspond to the publication content.
  • You can combine your code with your search strategy.
  • These codes are described as primary and secondary and can be used to narrow your search.  Primary classification have been selected as the most appropriate. For example, 62N10 prepresents Statistics (62), Engineering Statistics (62N) and Quality Control (62N10).  Broad areas can be searched using 2 or 3 digits of a classification (e.g. 62 or 62N).  For more information, you can look at primary and secondary code.
