GeoRef Logo Databases

The GeoRef Preview Database is updated weekly!
114,693 references to recent publications were loaded in our most recent update.

GeoRef now contains more than 4 million references to the world's geoscience literature. On July 11, 2018 GeoRef staff passed the 4 million reference mark. Since its development in the late 1960’s, the database has grown steadily – reaching its first million record in 1982. With the acceleration of scientific publishing, the last million records were added over a span of only 9 years.

Day passes now available for AusGeoRef, CanGeoRef and the Groundwater and Soil Contamination database. A pass that allows unlimited searching of each database is now available for the low cost of $12.00. Click here to sign up.

We are happy to announce the relaunch of our complimentary online database Geologic Guidebooks of North America Database. It has a new search interface and addition of a geographic map-based search option. For further information visit Geologic Guidebooks of North America Database.

CanGeoRef covers the geosciences literature of Canada and includes references to reports, books, maps, theses, conference proceedings and journal articles. Additional references to Provincial and Territorial Geological Surveys are being provided through collaboration between Canadian Federation of Earth Sciences (CFES) and American Geosciences Institute (AGI).
