GSW offers a single content conversion and one platform that brings together all a society’s journals and books and integrates them with fellow GSW societies and GeoRef. This not only eliminates duplication of costs for different platforms but provides a seamless reader experience. We also provide usage reporting for each subscribing institution as well as membership at large.
The GSW Research Platform averages 11.5 million annual pageviews, serving more than 61,000 society members. 96% of platform subscribers renew every year.
Usage on the GSW research platform is a combination of society institution, member, and GSW subscriber usage, meaning that each participating society sees increased royalties. By returning a high proportion of our income to our content partners, we help protect the viability and independence of society publishing programs while constantly exploring and incorporating valuable economic, technological, and strategic benefits of collaboration.
Since our inception, we’ve returned over $59.6 million to societies to advance their publishing, research, and educational programs.
By adopting the GSW research platform, GSW takes over the costs associated with hosting technology, ongoing platform enhancements, technological requirements, and innovation. This frees up society budgets for other member-focused programs and initiatives.
GSW engages with societies to define all requirements around platform enhancements, reducing staff resourcing costs product development and manage. We also help manage societies’ sales pipeline, from selling subscriptions and access to sales fulfilment, renewal negotiations, and customer service.
Every scholarly society is feeling the pressure to go open access, but not every publisher has the means to flip a journal or launch a new title. GSW re-launched Lithosphere as a community-oriented open access journal that invites transfers from GSW member publishers. Lithosphere is now the #1 open access geology journal by impact factor, and transferring to Lithosphere can make your society compliant with Plan S and your membership’s OA expectations.
GSW meets regularly with executive directors to understand strategic priorities and opportunities for collaboration amongst participating societies. Through these interactions, GSW creates common ground for cross-society discussions and networking so that all participating societies can benefit from new ideas and development.

As an independent and not-for-profit organization, GSW partners with society publishers to serve the information and content needs of academic libraries, educators, authors, and researchers.
GSW strives to protect the viability and independence of society publishing programs while prioritizing content value and discoverability for the libraries we serve.
GSW delivers content from all of our society partners in one place. Full-text journals, eBooks, GeoRef bibliographic data, and OpenGeoSci mapping functions work together on one platform. This integrated approach delivers an easy to use interface.
The GSW Research Platform averages 9.3 million annual pageviews, serving more than 61,000 society members. 96% of platform subscribers renew every year.
GSW is powered by GeoRef, the most authoritative abstracting and indexing database in the geosciences. It covers the geology of North America from 1666 and the geology of the rest of the world from 1933 to the present. GeoRef further connects publications of the U.S. Geological Survey, as well as masters’ theses and doctoral dissertations from U.S. and Canadian universities.
The GeoRef Thesaurus aligns nearly 40,000 controlled vocabulary terms into the GeoRef database and is an indispensable taxonomy tool for returning relevant and related content with a single search
The Earth Science content on GeoScienceWorld includes the extensive GSW Archive Collection. Spanning 1905-1999, the growing archive continues to expand and now includes the complete AAPG Bulletin backfile and expanded backfiles from Bulletin of Canadian Petroleum.
One dashboard lists full eBook and journal subscriptions and allows administrators to update their user access options. COUNTER and SUSHI usage reports are also available for download. Lastly, GSW is aligned with DOI and OpenURL standards and compliant with sections 508 and W3C.
