The Volcanic & Magmatic Studies Group (VMSG) is a joint Special Interest Group of the Geological Society of London and Mineralogical Society. In January 2020 we conducted an online questionnaire to establish if (and how) VMSG fulfils its mission to serve the volcanology, petrology and geochemistry community.
The survey was distributed via the VMSG mailing list, publicised at the VMSG annual meeting and shared over social media. Our aim was to learn about our community as it exists in 2020, and we welcomed candid views as to how we might modify VMSG activities to ensure we are a welcoming and inclusive organisation for all. The VMSG does not charge membership fees and keeps no records of individual member details. Therefore, this survey includes responses from those who self-identify as members of the VMSG community.
