The Shale Shaker encourages contributions from Society Members and welcomes contributions from other sources. The Shale Shaker is published under the oversight of OCGS Shale Shaker Editor Bill Coffey and a dedicated Publications Committee. The Directors, Officers, and staff of the Society, neither support nor oppose the views expressed in signed articles.
