Portico and the Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG) are pleased to announce that SEG will preserve its e-books with Portico. Through this agreement, SEG extends its relationship with Portico, which began in 2009 with the Society’s commitment to preserve its three e-journals and three conference abstract series in the Portico archive; one of each is published by the Environmental and Engineering Geophysical Society (EEGS).
“SEG has published more than 110 titles as e-books in the past few years, and as with our journals and meeting abstracts, it is essential that the long-term availability of this scholarship be assured,” said Ted Bakamjian, SEG publications director. “Portico provides the leadership and services that foster this assurance.”
Founded in 1930, SEG is a not-for-profit organization that has a mission to promote the science of geophysics and the education of geophysicists. SEG, which has more than 32,000 members in 138 countries, fulfills its mission through its publications, conferences, forums, Web sites, and educational opportunities. EEGS, with more than 500 members, is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to promoting geophysics as it is applied to environmental and engineering problems. SEG and EEGS content is available in the SEG Digital Library (http://library.seg.org).
