GeoRef Logo Databases

The GeoRef Preview Database is updated weekly!
122,437 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.
