Proceedings of the Yorkshire Geological Society

The Proceedings of the Yorkshire Geological Society (PYGS) has been published without a break since 1839. It is one of the leading journals of British geology. Each year two parts are issued containing original research papers on all aspects of geology.

Traditionally the Proceedings has given particular attention to the geology of northern England and its neighbouring areas. The submission of papers on related topics but of a more general interest is encouraged. All papers are subjected to the full scrutiny of two independent referees.

The Proceedings are available online via the Lyell Collection. Please see subscription rates for access entitlements.

The information in the Proceedings is abstracted and/or indexed in:

  • GeoArchive
  • Georef
  • Geobase
  • Geological Abstracts
  • Petroleum Abstracts
  • Mineralogical Abstracts
  • Research Alert
  • Science Citation Index Expanded (SCIE)
