GeoRef, the most comprehensive bibliographic database in the geological sciences, is now available through Elsevierâ€™s Engineering Village search platform.
GeoRefâ€™s 2.9 million references to geoscience journal articles, books, maps, conference papers, reports and theses are enhanced by the addition of a mapping tool, powered by Google Maps, that plots geographical locations corresponding to search results on a digital map. The option to view search results in a geographic region allows the researcher to visualize the global distribution of a research topic and is unique to the Engineering Village GeoRef offering.
“The new maps allow users to look at something other than standard citations and get a feel for the global nature of the research community,” said Colby Ellis, president of Elsevier’s Engineering and Technology Division. “This and other customer-driven features help Engineering Village improve the research experience, giving researchers the competitive advantage they need.”
GeoRef, produced by the American Geological Institute, provides comprehensive coverage of the international geoscience literature since 1933 and for North America since 1785.
