The collection contains all of the volumes published from 1879 up to the current day, with the last five years of articles available only in Abstract form.The format of the Journal has slowly evolved over the years. In early years the contents consisted of reports of the activities of the Society, excursions and proceedings, together with papers read at the meetings, but over time the 'business' sections have been published as a newsletter for members and the journals now consist of more specialised papers on historical and archaeological subjects. It is only these more specialised papers that have been scanned and available on-line in searchable pdf format. The file names of the articles are catalogued on volume number, year of publication and page numbers based on the original printed journals.
Individual papers are peer-reviewed and cover all aspects of 'past life' in the county of Derbyshire and the average size of any volume is 225 pages and published in a 'soft-back' version towards the end of each year.
