Elsevier to Integrate GSA Geological Maps Into Geofacets

Elsevier announced a collaboration with The Geological Society of America (GSA), one of the largest and most prestigious societies serving geosciences professionals worldwide. The collaboration will formally launch in September through the integration of more than 60,000 geological maps from GSA’s flagship journals, book series, and the comprehensive Decade of North American Geology compendium into Geofacets, Elsevier’s research tool for geoscientists working in exploration for the oil and gas and metals and mining industries.

The move will bring the total number of maps in Geofacets to more than 300,000, providing a comprehensive resource for Geofacets users to investigate potential areas for exploration in more detail. The GSA will be the largest third-party content contributor to Geofacets’ maps database to date, providing maps from its range of publications dating from 1934. As a result, exploration teams will put Geofacets to better use in their technical evaluations of geographic areas for potential energy and mineral sources. For the GSA and its 25,000 members across 103 countries, the collaboration will allow the society to expand the reach of its maps, from its established position with academic users to those in the applied sector that need its information to make the best decisions possible.

The 60,000 maps are collated from GSA’s flagship journals, including the Geological Society of America Bulletin and Geology, GSA’s monthly journal that has been recognized as the most cited geology publication for the past 6 years. Maps are also taken from GSA’s four book series and the Decade of North American Geology compendium. The collaboration builds on earlier Geofacets alliances with the Geological Society of London in October 2011, the Society for Sedimentary Geology in September 2012, and the Society of Economic Geologists in January 2013.
