Ordinary members of the society have online access to the full content of the Scottish Journal of Geology (SJG), including back issues, via the Lyell Collection. Instructions for how to register to access the Lyell Collection can be found on the Geological Society website. Please note that the system for accessing the collection changed on 27 July 2022. If you registered before that date, you will have to register again to use the new system.

Please note that you need to use your email address to register and to log in to the collection.

Once you have completed the registration process, you will be able to access the SJG section of the website and also the main Lyell Collection section. This section gives access to the SJG, the Transactions of the Geological Society of Glasgow and the Transactions of the Edinburgh Geological Society. It also gives access to abstracts of other journals published by the Geological Society and other elements in the collection; details of the freely available content can be found in the Lyell Collection section.

If you have any problems with registering or logging in to the Lyell Collection, you can use the collection’s online chat function for help. If any problems remain, please contact the membership secretary.
