With the advent of smart phones, tablets and other hand-held devices, the world of publications has been revolutionized.
For the past few years, AAPG has received more and more requests to provide access to its journals through a mobile application, and AAPG has answered: We are proud to announce the release of the AAPG Publications app.
As an added value to AAPG members and journal subscribers, the AAPG Publications app is available for both iOS (iTunes) and Android (Google Play) devices and can be downloaded for free.
Both the AAPG Bulletin and the Environmental Geosciences journals can be accessed from the app. AAPG members can simply download and authenticate using their member ID and password. Journal subscribers authenticate using IP address.
Within the AAPG Publications app, readers can access articles, bookmark favorite articles and share them directly from a smart phone or tablet via Facebook, Twitter and email.
Access to the full 100 years of AAPG Bulletin articles is available through the search option, and PDFs of articles can also be downloaded as needed to devices.
The app also contains “Most Read” and “Most Cited” feeds, a link to the AAPG Career Center, and a link to important AAPG deadlines.
The app currently contains the most recent four issues of the AAPG Bulletin. The Environmental Geosciences journal will be launched in the app with its next issue, which is scheduled to release this month (March 2016).
Once the content has built up to 12 months, the oldest issue will be dropped as each new issue is added, so that a rolling 12 months of journal issues will always be accessible directly from the app.
We hope members enjoy this new option for access to AAPG journals.
