Welcome to the digital archive of the Scottish Government Yearbooks, published by the University of Edinburgh's 'Unit for the Study of Government in Scotland' between 1976 and 1992.

This archive was constructed by the Unit's successor, the Institute of Governance. Please feel free to browse using the links above, or by using the search function.

The Scottish Government Yearbook was succeeded in 1992 by the quarterly journal Scottish Affairs. It has continued the same editorial principles as the Yearbook, and maintained the same commitment to providing a forum for well-informed public discussion. Further information on the development of the Yearbook and Scottish Affairs is available here.
