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 2020-2021 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 – e.g. 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.

 

We have added the complimentary Midwest Geological Sequestration Consortium Research Publications Database on our Online Database list. For more information visit https://carbon.americangeosciences.org/vufind/.

The GeoRef Preview Database is updated weekly!
128,670 references to recent publications were loaded in our most recent update.

It is with tremendous sadness that we pass on the news that Dennis Trombatore passed away on Saturday, July 18, 2020 after a long illness. Dennis was a long-time Geonet participant and the long-term Chair of the GeoRef Advisory Committee. His expertise and his wit will be sorely missed and fondly remembered. An eloquent tribute to Dennis has been posted on the University of Texas website at Dennis Trombatore.

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.

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 launched September 15, 2011! It is another subset of the well-known database, GeoRef. 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).
