AAPG's mission is to provide members, other geoscientists, and, in some cases, nongeologists with timely and useful publications at the lowest possible cost. There are several series of books published by AAPG: Memoirs, Studies in Geology, Archie, Hedberg, Methods in Exploration, and general Special Publications. All AAPG publications go through a proposal and review process overseen by the AAPG Publications Committee and Elected Editor before being accepted for publication. AAPG publishes both hard copy and digital books, as well as hybrid combinations of hard copy and digital.

Occasionally, books will be published that do not fall into a Series category, and these are published as general Special Publications, with no series number.

This publication will be of particular interest to micropalaeontologists, other Earth scientists, historians of science, museum curators and the general reader with an interest in science.
M100-Tectonics and Sedimentation: Implications for...  
Memoir 100 – This 18-chapter volume is small enough to focus on the interplay among tectonics, sedimentation, and petroleum systems. Yet it is big enough to cover the diversity of structural styles in important petroliferous sedimentary basins around the globe, including those in west Africa, east Africa, east Brazil, east United States of America, Gulf of Mexico, South China Sea, the Russian Arctic, and the Mediterranean Sea. Release date: 02/2013
M101-Energy Resources for Human Settlement in the Solar...  
This memoir is a comprehensive and integrated review of energy and mineral resources in the Solar System, including materials that can both sustain future manned expeditions and colonies in space and support Earth’s energy and critical material challenges in the 21st century and beyond. Release Date: 03/2013
M102 -Electron Microscopy of Shale Hydrocarbon Reserv.  
The purpose of Memoir 102 is to provide a practical reference for geologists, geophysists, engineers, and students to gain a better understanding of the various state-of-the-art techniques and applications of electron microscopy for shale hydrocarbon reservoir evaluation. Intended for both specialists and non-specialists alike, the reference volume will serve as a practical guide for petrographic interpretation and reservoir analog studies. Release date: 10/20/13

Books assigned to the Memoir Series are broad in topic, or have global application. The AAPG Memoir Series is currently cited by Thomson Reuters ISI.

Studies in Geology

Books assigned to the Studies Series are narrow in topic, or applicable locally or regionally only.


Books assigned to the Archie Series are focused on the topic of formation evaluation. This Series was named after Gustave E. Archie, a pioneer in the area of formation evaluation.


Books assigned to the Hedberg Series come directly from AAPG's Hedberg Conferences, and contain papers from presenters at those Conferences as well as papers relating to the Conference topic. The AAPG Hedberg Series will be included in Thomson Reuters ISI Web of Knowledge Conference Proceedings Publications.

Methods in Exploration

Books assigned to the Methods Series focus on specific application processes and technology in exploration.
