Geoscience Theses and Dissertations in GeoRef
It is that time of the year when we request information on Master’s and Bachelor’s theses and Doctoral dissertations for the 2021-2022 time period. We are interested in receiving information in the geoscience disciplines including soils, hydrogeology, marine geology, and environmental geology so that references to these documents can be included in GeoRef, the primary bibliographic service for the geosciences used by thousands of researchers worldwide. Visit GeoRef database for more information.

In addition to being referenced in GeoRef, information on recent theses and dissertations is linked to AGI’s popular publication the Directory of Geoscience Department.

When submitting information directly, please include as much information as possible: title, author, date of publication, degree, total number of pages, number of references in bibliography, details on fold-out maps, illustrations, etc.
If your theses or dissertations are available via the internet, please send us information on how we might access them: through ProQuest, your online library catalog, a department web site, in an electronic repository, etc.
If they are available through an electronic repository that is not open to outside visitors, please consider sending us as much information as is possible directly.
If they are available through your catalog, please send us advice on how to locate the theses and dissertations for the relevant departments.
Send an email to ml@americangeosciences.org to submit them or if you have any questions.

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.
