Access and subscription prices


The Geological Society has tried to make key elements in the Lyell Collection as accessible as possible. Key online functionality, including article browsing, quick and advanced searching, eToc and research alerts, and GoogleScholar links are all available for free. In addition, all abstracts and chapter extracts, as well as the introductory article of each Special Publication and any journal thematic set introduction, are freely available, as is the first chapter in key book titles.

In addition, all articles authored by Charles Lyell, after whom the Collection is named, are freely available.

Apart from the free material described above, the Lyell Collection is available to Fellows of the Geological Society, institutions, corporations and libraries on a subscription basis. Content which is not subscribed to can be accessed on a pay-per-view basis. If your company or institution is considering subscribing please request a 30 day trial.
