I searched but did not find one.

If it does not yet exist, is there a project on biblatex style files for AMS journals?

    Perhaps make clear if you are interested for 'personal' use or journal submission. The latter is in general not well supported with biblatex at the moment and Barbara's answer makes clear simply not accepted by the AMS.

AMS publications do not support biblatex.

Only BibTeX and amsrefs are accepted.

There is no plan to support biblatex.

Edit: The AMS, in order to satisfy demands from journal aggregators and on-line bibliographic services, now converts all bibliographies for journals and books that are being published in "dual form" (both in print and electronically) to a uniform amsrefs style, with the "canonical" reference (if one exists) drawn from MathSciNet, replacing what the author has submitted. As this is done automatically, with as little manual intervention as possible, the permissible variation in style of entries is limited to what is already "known".

  • If a biblatex style appeared based on AMS guidelines, maybe the Society might consider it. Probably it couldn't contain ams in its name, at least unless and until the Society endorses it.

  • sorry, @egreg. the ams policy is more complicated than that. i'm at this very moment entombing it in an updated author handbook. i'll add the details to my answer. Commented Sep 4, 2014 at 14:07
