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.

The full text of all articles cited in subscribed-to content, and articles which are hosted by HighWire (including GeoScienceWorld), are also available free at a subscribing institution.

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

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, it may be possible to arrange a free trial period, please contact us to inquire.
