The yearbook Ymer is one of SSAG’s key publications. It is released once a year since its inception in 1881. Ymer is a book and addresses the general public.

The yearbook is named after the giant Ymer (English: Ymir) in the Viking creation myth. From his body Oden created the earth. Ymer is also the name of the ship with which the Swedish explorer Adolf Erik Nordenskiöld undertook a polar expedition to the Russian Yenisej River in 1876.

Members of SSAG receives Ymer every year. Ymer is also available at many libraries.
