June 12, 2018 – McLean, VA and Charlottesville, VA – GeoScienceWorld (GSW) is pleased to welcome two new Society Services clients — the American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG) and the Mineralogical Association of Canada (MAC) — and to announce the addition of two new archives from AAPG and The Mineralogical Society of America (MSA) on The Silverchair Platform, host to GSW’s domain-leading collection of earth science research.
Starting this June, MAC will serve its Canadian Mineralogist customers via a version of record site on geoscienceworld.org. Later in the month, MSA will add nearly 3,000 articles to its archival content from American Mineralogist, dating back to 1916.
Also in 2018, AAPG will provide AAPG Bulletin member access through the GSW site and will deepen their archive to include years 1917–1999, an addition of approximately 5,500 articles.

About Mineralogical Association of Canada The Mineralogical Association of Canada (MAC) was formed in 1955 as a non-profit scientific organization to promote and advance the knowledge of mineralogy and the allied disciplines of crystallography, petrology, geochemistry and mineral deposits. Mineralogy is the science that deals with minerals, their structure and chemistry, the processes and environment of their formation. Through its annual meetings, short courses, publications and sponsored symposia, the Association provides a forum for the presentation and dissemination of current knowledge and advances to world-wide community of earth scientists. Ever since its inception, MAC has given special attention to mineral deposits geology, particularly in organizing symposia, short courses and publishing special volumes and short-course notes on the subject. http://www.mineralogicalassociation.ca/
About The Mineralogical Society of America – MSA was founded in 1919 for the advancement of mineralogy, crystallography, geochemistry, petrology, and promotion of their uses in other sciences, industry, and the arts. It encourages fundamental research about natural materials; supports the teaching of mineralogical concepts and procedures; and attempts to raise the scientific literacy of society members with respect to issues involving mineralogy in the widest sense. The Society encourages the preservation of mineral collections, displays, mineral localities, type minerals, and scientific data. To accomplish its goals, the Society publishes journals, magazines, and books, as well as uses short courses, lectureships, Internet website, awards, grants, symposia, and meetings for professionals, students, and the public. http://www.minsocam.org
