The Geological Curator is the journal of The Geological Curators' Group. It is published twice annually, and is available in electronic and paper formats. In order to benefit the geological curation community in the greatest way possible, our current policy is to make all of our journals articles open access after two years have passed from the date of publication. The best way to receive the latest copies is to take out a subscription as a member of GCG. 


Our online search portal is an exciting new development allowing current subscribers to the journal to search the full text of our back issues. Currently approaching 50% of our back catalogue has been indexed, with more being added on a regular basis. 

Volume 10 of The Geological Curator is formed of ten issues from August 2014 to December 2018. Highlights included issues covering Ethics, and the life of geologist Hugh Miller. 

You will require a valid journal subscription to access some of the articles, but the rest are freely available as PDF files under our open access policy.

Volume 9 of The Geological Curator is formed of ten issues from December 2008 to December 2013. Highlights included the special edition "Fossil Preparation: Tools, Techniques and Projects".

All the issues in this volume are freely available as PDF files under our open access policy.
