As a special interest group with current and interesting research, VMSG periodically publishes a newsletter, volumes of which can be found below. For current openings and matters of interest, regular postings on the VMSG Facebook and Linked In groups and Twitter feed help members keep up to date with relevant news in the community. If you are interested in recieving news through any of these channels please click on the relevant icons at the top of this page.
If, as a participant in the VMSG community, you are a member of the Mineralogical Society, there are further publications available. Members of VMSG who choose to join MinSoc will get their own copy of Elements, the monthly newsletter of the society. Membership also provides access to the Mineralogical Magazine.
The Mineralogical Magazine is an international journal of mineral sciences, published six times a year, which covers the fields of mineralogy, crystallography, geochemistry, petrology, environmental geology and economic geology. This journal is available in print and as an e-journal. The journal has been published continuously since the founding of the Society in 1876 and is a leading journal in its field. As well as research papers the journal also includes book reviews.
If VMSG members decide to become fellows of the Geological Society, there are advantages to this also. All Fellows receive the monthly magazine Geoscientist, one free Society journal (Journal of the Geological Society, Quarterly Journal of Engineering Geology & Hydrogeology, Petroleum Geoscience or Geochemistry: Exploration, Environment, Analysis), discounted publications and meeting fees and access to the world-class Lyell Collection.
