How it Works

The digital edition is easy to use right in your web browser! Click here to try it for free.

When a new issue of the Journal is available, digital members will receive an email from the NRG with details on how to access your digital edition. You'll just click a link and enter your personal login.

To view on a tablet or mobile phone, just enter the link in your device's web browser. There's nothing to download or install.

The digital edition is available when you choose a digital membership option with the Nautical Research Guild. New and renewing members can select this when signing up, and current members can easily add a digital edition to their existing membership by contacting the NRG.


There are now three ways to obtain the Journal when you join or renew your membership in the NRG: print, digital or both print and digital. All three options include a full year of membership in the Nautical Research Guild and four issues of the Nautical Research Journal per year. Select the membership option that's best for you.
