Amendments to subscription options offered for 2021

1) The subscription option "Lyell Collection Compete online + all print (books and journals)" is no longer available. "Lyell Collection Compete online" and "Lyell Collection Compete online + print Special Publications" options are still available.

2) These journals will be online only from 2021 (the online+print option is no longer available):

  • Journal of the Geological Society
  • Quarterly Journal of Engineering Geology & Hydrogeology
  • Petroleum Geoscience
  • Geochemistry: Exploration, Environment, Analysis

The Geological Society of London’s owned and co-owned journals will move to electronic-only publication from January 2021.

The popularity of the Society’s journals continues to increase and the restrictions of a print-led publication model are adversely impacting the service and experience for authors. The removal of print will be accompanied by a move to a continuous publication model that will allow the authoritative version of articles to be published more quickly. 
Alongside modernization of the Society’s publications and improvements to author service, there are compelling environmental reasons to cease printing journals and so help to reduce the Society’s carbon footprint. We appreciate that this might be disappointing to those subscribers who opt to pay for a print copy.

Print copies will continue to be produced for other journal titles (Scottish Journal of Geology and Proceedings of the Yorkshire Geological Society) and books, including Geological Society of London Special Publications.

3) The Society magazine Geoscientist is now distributed quarterly. Issues are scheduled for March, June, September and December.
