Economic Geology Launches on the Silverchair Platform

(Charlottesville, VA & Littleton, CO) May 9, 2017 – Silverchair Information Systems and the Society of Economic Geologists, Inc. (SEG), in partnership with GeoScienceWorld (GSW), today announce the launch of Economic Geology on the Silverchair Platform. The fully integrated SEG publication portal is the first site hosted by GSW to launch on the Silverchair Platform, as part of the newly expanded GSW Society Services program.  

Economic Geology is globally recognized as the preeminent geoscience journal focusing on the scientific investigation of mineral deposits and resources, and it is one of the top journals in GSW by usage. The basic and applied interdisciplinary offerings of the journal have served a wide audience of geologists, government decision-makers, and researchers for over 100 years. Leveraging responsive design, advanced search technology, and a modern user experience, the new Economic Geology site emphasizes images, figures and data to enhance the reader’s experience with research publications.

Economic Geology’s migration occurs in conjunction with GSW’s move to the Silverchair Platform in 2017 and includes journal articles dating back to 1905.

“The Society of Economic Geologists substantially enhances its offerings on the Silverchair Platform,” said Thane Kerner, Silverchair CEO. “By building atop the new infrastructure and tools created for GSW, SEG will achieve meaningful operating economies while providing distinctive value for its membership, authors, and readers.”

“The Society is dedicated to advancing the science and discovery of mineral resources through research activities, publications, and educational programs for academic and professional audiences,” said Brian Hoal, Executive Director of SEG. “Re-launching our publications on the Silverchair Platform in partnership with GSW enables us to extend the reach of the Society and will help readers engage more fully with important research findings.”
