Description Online resource
Summary Acta Geologica Sinica is an academic quarterly of the Geological Society of China
It was established in 1922 and is one of the earliest scientific journals in China
Its predecessor was the Bulletin of the Geological Society of China and published papers mainly in English, with some in German and French
With one volume a year, it carried the results of geological investigations of the members of the society and papers presented in annual meetings of the society
After having published 31 volumes, the journal was renamed Acta Geologica Sinica in 1952 and released papers in Chinese instead of foreign languages, but it was continuously numbered and published by the Science Press of China and was distributed at home in China and abroad
With a 4-year break during 1967-1971, it has published 76 volumes
In March 1988, to meet the need for international exchange, Acta Geologica Sinica (English Edition) resumed publication in English and carried the English translation of the papers of the Chinese edition
Since 1997, Acta Geologica Sinica (English edition) has been numbered in the same way as the Chinese edition and not carried the full text translation of the Chinese edition in principle but directly carried the English originals
Acta Geologica Sinica mainly reports the latest and most important achievements in the theoretical and basic research in geological sciences, together with new technologies, in China
Papers published involve various aspects of research concerning geosciences and related disciplines, such as stratigraphy, palaeontology, origin and history of the Earth, structural geology, tectonics, mineralogy, petrology, geochemistry, geophysics, geology of mineral deposits, hydrogeology, engineering geology, environmental geology, regional geology and new theories and technologies of geological exploration
