ACCUCOMS to represent the Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG) in Latin America

Leiden, The Netherlands – ACCUCOMS is delighted to announce its new representation agreement with the Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG) in Mexico, the Caribbean, and Central and South America including Brazil.

The Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG) is the global society of applied geophysicists operating as a not-for-profit organization and supporting more than 20,000 members from 128 countries. SEG’s mission is to advance applied geophysics, in part by fostering knowledge exchange in the field. To accelerate that goal, SEG has engaged ACCUCOMS to represent its research and information resources in Latin America. ACCUCOMS has been a leading provider of sales and marketing services to academic and professional publishers around the world since 2004.

With the new agreement, ACCUCOMS is responsible for increasing SEG Digital Library site-license sales in the academic, government, and corporate sectors in Mexico, the Caribbean, and Central and South America including Brazil and providing local support and information to all subscription agents and customers in the regions. Site-license subscriptions are available for the journals Geophysics, Interpretation, The Leading Edge, Exploration Geophysics, and the Journal of Environmental and Engineering Geophysics; SEG eBooks; and several collections of expanded abstracts and other papers presented at meetings.

“SEG is enthused about its new partnership with ACCUCOMS to bring leading technology-exchange products in applied geophysics to more scientists in Latin America,” said Ted Bakamjian, SEG Associate Executive Director, Knowledge Management. “ACCUCOMS has built rich relationships throughout the region and can help our society advance application of the science we serve.”

In Latin America, ACCUCOMS Commercial Manager for Mexico and the Caribbean Juan José Gamboa, will oversee contacts for SEG.

“Due a variety of region characteristics in Latin America´s countries, some universities, corporations, and research centers are constantly studying seismic activity, mineral deposits, water and petroleum reservoirs, etc.; serious information, tools, and resources offered by SEG certainly should be provided to students and research teams at these institutions,” said Gamboa. “At ACCUCOMS LATAM, we are looking forward to working on developing these opportunities.”

Anouk Snijders, Central and South America Commercial Manager, added: “Geophysics, and especially exploration geophysics, is an important topic for many institutions in Latin America. We are looking forward to working with the Society of Exploration Geophysicists and to introducing their publications to prospects in the region.”
