In addition to the books listed, SCI has a complete collection of its journals, in print, from its foundation to date and the more recent ones are also available in electronic form to subscribers.

The collection of journals in the Members' Lounge is not quite complete, a few of the earlier issues are missing. A complete collection may be seen in the Executive Director's room, on request. Only a small selection of other (non-journal) publications is displayed in the Members' Lounge. Many of the rest of these are kept in the Members' Study and again, there is a complete collection in the Executive Director's room.

Books held in the SCI Archive are not for sale nor available to borrow, but may be consulted at SCI Headquarters during opening hours, free of charge. Photocopies of articles in the Journals may be supplied on request (subject to copyright) but there may be a charge for this service.
