SEG Discovery is the quarterly publication for members of SEG. Formerly the SEG Newsletter, it was founded in 1990 as a much-needed solution for the expanding "Society Pages" that appeared in the back of Economic Geology. In 2020, to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Society and respond to increasing demand for more industry-focused technical articles with modern digital content, the SEG Publications Board expanded the scope of the publication and updated the name to reflect these innovations.
