(Charlottesville, VA and Littleton, CO) February 13, 2017 – Silverchair Information Systems and the Society of Economic Geologists, Inc. (SEG) today announced a new partnership to launch a fully integrated SEG Publications portal on the Silverchair Platform. SEG’s acclaimed content includes the Society’s flagship journal, Economic Geology, and 100 eBooks.

This occurs in conjunction with GeoScienceWorld (GSW)'s newly expanded Society Services program and will be coordinated with GSW’s recently announced move to the Silverchair Platform in 2017. Economic Geology will migrate to the Silverchair Platform in May, including journal articles dating back to 1905.

“The Society of Economic Geologists is positioned to substantially enhance its offerings on the Silverchair Platform,” said Thane Kerner, Silverchair CEO. “By building atop the new infrastructure and tools being 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 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’s science and will help readers engage more fully with important research findings.”
