Society members who are eligible to receive the paper version of the Scottish Journal of Geology now have free online access to the full content of the journal, including back issues, via the Lyell Collection. This involves a one-off, free, subscription activation where you select a user name and password. The steps to setting up access to the Lyell Collection are as follows:

  1. Go to the subscription activation page and enter your subscriber ID number. This is your four-digit GSG membership number prefixed with the letters GSG; for example, if your GSG membership number is 1004 then your subscriber ID is GSG1004. You can find your GSG membership number from the address label of a recent SJG or newsletter mailing, or by contacting the membership secretary.
  2. Select a username and password that you will use to login and view the journal.

Once you’ve completed the subscription activation, you will be able to access the SJG site here or by using the link from the main Lyell Collection webpage. If you have any problems with access to the Lyell Collection, please contact the membership secretary
