Geophysics will become the 39th online journal to be added to this premier collection of online peer-reviewed earth-science journals. The full text is freely available to all until 15 February 2011; after that date, full text will be available only to GSW subscribers. As always, Geophysics is also available to SEG members and subscribers through the SEG Digital Library (

Geophysics, published continuously since 1936, is an archival journal encompassing all aspects of research, exploration, and education in applied geophysics. Its articles, generally more than 250 per year, cover the entire spectrum of geophysical methods, including seismology, potential fields, electromagnetics, and borehole measurements Geophysics, a bimonthly, provides theoretical and mathematical tools needed to reproduce depicted work, encouraging further development and research. Full text of Geophysics articles for issues published from 2000 to the present is available in GSW; abstracts are available for most articles published in previous years.

“SEG is proud to add Geophysics to the robust GSW online earth-science portal,” said Ted Bakamjian, SEG’s Director of Publications. “The Society looks forward to the increased exposure of the journal to a wider community of geoscientists, as SEG’s technical magazine, The Leading Edge, has enjoyed since GSW’s launch in 2005.”

GeoScienceWorld is an online resource for research and communications in the geosciences, built on a core aggregation of high-impact, peer-reviewed journals that are indexed, linked, and interoperable with the GeoRef bibliographic database. The addition of Geophysics is another important step toward GSW's aim of becoming the most comprehensive, widely accessible, easy-to-use, integrated, and cost-effective online resource for journals in the geological and earth sciences.
