The GGS publishes a journal "Journal of Geosciences Research" (ISSN:2455-1953; Formerly "Gondwana Geological Magazine") with two issues annually. The Journal "Journal of Geosciences Research" is circulated to life members/some Indian geological institutions/universities, etc. It is noteworthy to mention here that Journal "Journal of Geosciences Research" is circulated to a few international libraries on an exchange basis.
