Focus and Scope
Journal of the Geological Society of Sri Lanka is a peer-reviewed and open access journal published by the Geological Society of Sri Lanka. It aims to publish the most topical and highest quality papers, summarizing the results of recent research across all sub-disciplines of the Earth Science. Papers are frequently interdisciplinary covering both pure and applied fields of Geology. Contributions often refer to local, regional and/or international studies and emphasize the development of the understanding of fundamental geological processes.
Papers are frequently interdisciplinary in nature, often refer to regional studies and should emphasize the development of understanding of fundamental geological processes. The implications of regional studies should extend beyond their geographical context. Alternatively, more specialized papers can be submitted, but they should be written in a style that is easily understood by non-specialists to illustrate the progress being made in that specific area of the Earth Sciences. Reviews on topics of current interest are also welcome, but they too should be written to cater for non-specialist readers.
The journal publishes one volume and two issues a year.
