# USEFUL WEBSITES

A range of high-quality resources for Mathematical Sciences are available on the web. Start exploring them below.

If interested in actuarial science, refer to the subject specific page.

## General journal directories

- Journals TOC: Service which provides access to table of contents of many journals.
- TechExpo DIRECTORY OF ENGINEERING AND SCIENTIFIC TRADE TECHNICAL MAGAZINES: A (if some what dated) listing of a range of trade publications, many of them freely available online.

## Online lectures

- Coursera: Online courses some are free and some cost money (especially if you want a diploma/certificate)
- EdX: Free online courses from the top universities in the world (for a diploma/certificate it costs money.)
