Once a year the society publishes the Mercian Geologist, its
own journal, compiled by an editor who is a member of the Council.
Papers are invited and published on all geological topics and whilst
items on East Midlands geology are especially welcome, there is no
restriction on the scope of papers considered. In recent years the
journal has been refurbished and remodelled to give a more modern
look, and now has more news features, informal reports and comment.
The editor is pleased to receive non-scientific input
from members on the society's affairs.
Mercian Geologist - notes for contributors
LANDMARKS OF GEOLOGY:
The Society publishes the "Landmarks of Geology" series from the Mercian Geologist in the Local Geology section, and invites you to use this valuable source of reference. The series will continue to grow with successive items in our journal. Any reference to these items should cite the Mercian Geologist and the issue that they originate from, and not this website.
