The Geological Society of Malaysia (GSM) was founded in 1967 with the aim of promoting the advancement of geoscience, particularly in Malaysia and Southeast Asia. The Society has a membership of about 700 geoscientists based in Malaysia as well as abroad.
Warta Geologi is published three times yearly (April, August, December) by the Society. Warta Geologi publishes peer-reviewed short geological communications and original research on Earth Science. The scope includes local and regional geology, conservation geology, economic geology, engineering geology, environmental geology, geochemistry, geomorphology, geophysics, hydrogeology, palaeontology, petroleum geology, sedimentology, stratigraphy, structural geology and tectonics. Warta Geologi also reports on activities and news about GSM and the geoscience community in Malaysia.
Warta Geologi is distributed free-of-charge to members of the Society and is available free online through the Society’s website: www.gsm.org.my.
GSM is committed to upholding standards of ethical behaviour at all stages of the publication process and we recommend the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) Best Practice Guidelines (http://publicationethics.org/resources/guidelines).
