Pay-per-view Access

For those who do not hold a subscription to required content, access is possible via a pay-per-view option.

A fee of US$30 per article is made by a secure credit card transaction, and the payee has 24 hours to download the purchased content. Once 24 hours has expired further access will not be possible.

Pay-per-view content is for the use of the payee only, and content may not be further distributed by print or electronic means except under licence from CLA, CCC or your local reproduction rights agency.

You may view, download, and/or print the article for your personal scholarly, research, and educational use. You may not (i) distribute a copy (electronic or otherwise) of the article without the written permission of GSL, (ii) post the article on an electronic bulletin board or web site, or (iii) charge for a copy (electronic or otherwise) of the article. 

Please note that the purchase of pay-per-view items is administered by the site host HighWire Press and not by the Geological Society. Please contact HWP by email or via the Feedback page for assistance with your purchase or if the Regain Access link does not work.
