GeoScienceWorld eBook Collections

GeoScienceWorld is pleased to announce the launch of our eBooks program. The GeoScienceWorld eBook Collections are hosted by HighWire Press and contain eBooks from leading global societies publishing in the Earth Sciences. The eBook collections is available for institutional purchase with chapters available for online purchasing and downloading by individual users.

The GeoScienceWorld eBook Collections will be fully integrated with 140,000 articles in GSW’s Millennium and Archive Journals Collections and 3.6-million records from the American GeoSciences Institute’s GeoRef database, providing users with the ability to search across a broad range of geoscience content. More than 1,150 titles are currently available, with annual content updates available.

The GeoScienceWorld eBook Collections features an Advanced Search form, a “type ahead” feature in the search box that recognizes and auto-populates entries based on GeoRef Thesaurus terms, and faceted search delimiters, including: content type, publisher, eBook series, GeoRef subject, geologic time, and publication date.



Books are downloadable in PDF format at the chapter level or can be viewed in an online eBook reader. Users can browse the eBook Collections by publisher or subject, and share content through social media sharing links and email distribution. The Citation Manager tool supports popular services including: BibText, Bookends, EasyBib, EndNote, Mendeley, Papers, Ref Manager, RefWorks, and Zotero.  



Additional enhancements, coming soon, include: a more comprehensive search and full integration with the GSW Journals and GeoRef platform; free MARC records for all titles; figure-display improvements; and an eCommerce shopping cart for public users to purchase and download individual book chapters.
