GeoScienceWorld Launches OpenGeoSci Map-Based Discovery Platform
27 Oct 2013
OpenGeoSci (http://opengeosci.org) is a free, public web application featuring a map-based discovery interface providing geographic searching for more than 300,000 maps, cross-sections, charts, tables, and other high-value content from GeoScienceWorld publications.
BSSA and SRL are included in GeoScienceWorld, an aggregation of 45 earth science journals. At launch, OpenGeoSci includes material published since 2000.
The goal of OpenGeoSci is to further aid researchers in discovery of relevant valuable assets for academic research. Using a combination of search terms, map locations, and a choice of filters, results take users directly to data within the displayed articles. OpenGeoSci speeds the research process and exposes a broad audience of earth scientists and other professionals to a variety vetted resources.
“This innovative tool enables rapid discovery of an ever expanding collection of public and proprietary research assets,” says Alix Vance, Executive Director of GSW. “We are pleased to offer this unique application to over 4 million GSW users and the public alike.”
