GEUS makes more than a century of geological research available online as open access.
Since 1890, geoscientists have published articles about the geology of Denmark, Greenland and the Arctic in journals published by the Geological Survey of Greenland (GGU) and the Geological Survey of Denmark (DGU). These journals are the predecessors of GEUS Bulletin – the flagship, open access scholarly journal published by GEUS.
Now, all of the approximately 2,500 articles, monographs, reports and map descriptions, many of them in English, have been made available online, open access for all to read at geusjournals.org.
For instance, you can read a description of the geology of all of Greenland covering almost 4 billion years.
Or a geological description of the Illimaussaq Intrusion in South Greenland, which holds rare earth metals and thereby has become interesting politically as well.
An important step
Catherine Jex, editor-in-chief of GEUS Bulletin explains:
“The full catalogue is hosted on our dedicated journal platform, GEUS Journals, allowing all the metadata for this scientific research to be registered in modern scholarly databases. This is a really important step in preserving the scientific record and this rich catalogue of titles for current and future generations of scholars.”
“For me, as editor in chief of the current journal, GEUS Bulletin, it is wonderful to finally see the full back catalogue of DGU and GGU titles published online. We can now show this long thread that extends from our modern articles of satellite imagery and machine learning, all the way back to the beautiful hand drawings of fossils and maps in 1893. This treasure trove of Danish and Greenlandic geological research is now freely available to the world on our open access platform. It’s just fantastic.”
