EEGS publications now are available
in SEG Digital Library

Partnership of two leading geophysical societies expands
research available to their members and other subscribers

7 October 2008—The complete journal and proceedings archives of the Environmental and Engineering Geophysical Society (EEGS) have been added to the SEG Digital Library, the Society of Exploration Geophysicists’ (SEG) publications portal on the Scitation platform operated by the American Institute of Physics (AIP).

All 13 volumes of the Journal of Environmental and Engineering Geophysics (JEEG) and all 21 annual proceedings of the Symposium on the Application of Geophysics to Engineering and Environmental Problems (SAGEEP) are available within the EEGS Research Collection.

“With EEGS publications, the SEG Digital Library has improved its coverage of geophysical applications in such areas as water resources, fault mapping, groundwater cleanup, and unexploded ordnance,” said Fred Aminzadeh, SEG president. “Our alliance with EEGS will facilitate more technical innovation across the geophysics community.”

The complete JEEG and SAGEEP Proceedings archives are online thanks to a partnership between EEGS and SEG. In the SEG Digital Library, the EEGS Research Collection shares an interface and search engines with the SEG Research Collection, which includes Geophysics, The Leading Edge, the SEG Technical Program Expanded Abstracts, and the online version of the Encyclopedic Dictionary of Applied Geophysics, fourth edition. The EEGS publications have been added to the Digital Cumulative Index (DCI), SEG’s bibliographic database of applied geophysics literature published by five geoscience societies.

“Near-surface geophysics is a field of increasing importance, with a growing range of engineering, environmental, and resource applications,” said Jonathan E. Nyquist, recently elected as EEGS president. “By putting JEEG and the SAGEEP Proceedings online within the SEG Digital Library, EEGS is giving the work of its member scientists exposure in the broader community of applied geophysicists and with researchers and practitioners in many other disciplines.”

EEGS members are gaining access to full-text articles in the EEGS Research Collection plus the SEG Technical Program Expanded Abstracts. SEG members are gaining access to the EEGS Research Collection in addition to the SEG Research Collection access they already enjoy.

Institutions subscribing to JEEG in print have gained access to the online EEGS Research Collection for the duration of 2008 and will have the opportunity to add continuing access for 2009. Institutions subscribing to SEG publications have obtained access to the EEGS Research Collection for the remainder of 2008 and can maintain that level of access with an upgraded subscription for 2009.

“We are pleased to add EEGS publications to the Scitation platform, which is heavily used by researchers worldwide and where they will have a natural online home with a wide range of other engineering and physical science content,” said Darlene Walters, AIP senior vice president, publishing.

Subscriptions to EEGS and SEG publications are available through AIP’s Circulation and Fulfillment Service at +1.800.334.6908, +1.516.576.2270, or by e-mail. Rates are available online.

EEGS is an applied science organization founded in 1992 with headquarters in Denver, Colorado. EEGS promotes the application of geophysics to environmental and engineering problems primarily through its publications and its annual meeting (SAGEEP).

The SEG, founded in 1930 with headquarters in Tulsa, Oklahoma (USA), is the world's largest professional applied geophysics society, with more than 30 000 members in 130 countries. SEG promotes the science of geophysics and the education of a wide range of geoscientists. The Society fosters the expert and ethical practice of geophysics in the exploration and development of natural resources, in characterizing the near surface, and in mitigating earth hazards. The Society fulfills its mission through its publications, conferences, forums, Web sites, and educational programs.

The AIP, founded in 1931, is a not-for-profit membership corporation created for the purpose of promoting the advancement and diffusion of the knowledge of physics and its application to human welfare. It is the mission of the Institute to serve the sciences of physics and astronomy by serving its ten member societies, by serving individual scientists, and by serving students and the general public.

AIP provides a spectrum of services and programs devoted to advancing the science and profession of physics. A pioneer in digital publishing, AIP is also one of the world’s largest publishers of physics journals and produces the publications of more than 25 scientific and engineering societies.
