SEG Books

The goal of SEG's books program is to facilitate dissemination of technical information among geophysicists throughout the world.


SEG publishes a wide range of books, DVDs, and videos in several series, in print, on removable media, and online.

Purchasing SEG books in print

SEG books in print and other reference publications may be purchased online, by email, phone, fax, or mail. SEG members can purchase most items in the portfolio at a discount of approximately 20% off the list price.

Corporations and college or university instructors are eligible for discounts through special programs.

Purchasing SEG eBooks

SEG publishes many of its books online through SEG eBooks, part of the SEG Digital Library. Individuals may make credit-card purchases of chapters or whole books, and institutions may purchase subscriptions to the entire collection or purchase perpetual access to specific titles or the entire collection.


Submissions, policies, and procedures

Proposals and manuscripts should be submitted online through Aries Systems' Editorial Manager system. This system is used for online submission, peer review, and tracking. Authors and editors may download the book proposal submission worksheet to help prepare for online submission. A rich set of policies, procedures, guidelines, and other supporting information about book publishing with SEG are provided.

SEG Technical Standards are available for purchase in print from the SEG Online Book Mart. SEG also publishes all of its technical standards online and makes them available to any visitor to the SEG website.
