- The Mathematical Atlas created by Dave Rusin, provides a guide to the top level of the Mathematics Subject Classification (MSC 2000);
- The Number Theory and Physics Archive created by Matthew Watkins, provides a guide to research literature which links number theory and physics.
- The site Perfectly Random Sampling with Markov Chains created by David Wilson is one of a small number of high quality sites devoted to specialized subjects.

- Don Burkholder Professor of Mathematics, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
- Persi Diaconis Mary V. Sunseri Professor of Statistics and Mathematics, Stanford University.
- Lawrence Craig Evans Professor of Mathematics, University of California, Berkeley.
- Ann Jensen Mathematics Statistics Librarian, University of California, Berkeley
- Jerry Marsden Carl F. Braun Professor of Engineering and Control and Dynamical Systems, California Institute of Technology.
- Richard Melrose Professor of Mathematics, MIT.
- David Mumford University Professor, Div. of Applied Mathematics, Brown University.
- Marc Rieffel Professor of Mathematics, University of California, Berkeley.

- The Institute of Mathematical Statistics (IMS) and the Bernoulli Society, which are the are copublishers of Probability Surveys. These societies have indicated a strong interest in continued support of electronic infrastructure projects to improve professional communication in probability and statistics. We expect them also to support a companion Statistics Surveys journal about to be launched, and to support development of the The Mathematical Atlas in probability, statistics and neighbouring fields. The journal infrastructure developed for contributions in these areas will then be available across all fields of mathematics.
- Cornell University Library manages Project Euclid which provides web hosting, and we expect soon archiving, for Probability Surveys. We hope to find adequate support from institutional sponsors to provide similar web hosting and archiving for a growing family of Math. Survey journals.
- VTEX is the IMS technical typesetting contractor and primary web host of electronic journals in the Math. Surveys family. See also their sponsoring proposal for open access electronic journals
- The Department of Statistics, University of California hosts Jim Pitman's BibServer which provides bibliographic management software being developed in collaboration with VTEX for use in IMS journal production and for provision of biblographic services to IMS members.
- Zentralblatt MATH has cooperated by allowing use of its index of mathematical literature and the MSC2000 tree to develop MatNav, a general tool for subect navigation in mathematics.
- Math Gateway A pathway to Undergraduate Mathematics. The Math. Survey has recently become one of the partners in this project, which is supported jointly by the MAA and the National Science Digital Library. The Math Gateway will bring together collections with significant mathematical content and services of particular importance to the delivery and use of mathematics on the Web.
- The Sociedade Brasiliera de Matemática is the publisher of Ensaios Matemáticos which is one of the family of Math. Survey journals.
