Previously published by Chapman & Hall (now part of the Kluwer Group) in partnership with JNCC, this important series entered a new phase in 1999, with the decision to publish new titles (volume 15 onwards) direct from the JNCC-GCR unit.
In 2011, it was announced that the remaining volumes not currently published will only be available as Special Issues of the Proceedings of the Geologists' Association. These can be purchased directly from http://www.journals.elsevier.com/proceedings-of-the-geologists-association as they are published.
About the Geological Conservation Review
The initiation of the Geological Conservation Review (GCR) in 1977 was a major step forward in Earth heritage conservation. It was designed to identify those sites of national and international importance needed to show all the key scientific elements of the Earth heritage in Britain. The sites selected - GCR sites - form the basis of statutory geological and geomorphological site conservation in Britain. The aim of the Geological Conservation Review Series is to provide a public record of the features of interest and importance at localities already notified or being considered for notification as `Sites of Special Scientific Interest' (SSSIs). All volumes in the series are written to the highest scientific standards and incorporate the cumulative insights of generations of leading earth scientists, in such a way that the assessment and conservation value of the sites is clear.
