China Geology is co-sponsored by the China Geological Survey (CGS) and the Chinese Academy of Geological Sciences (CAGS). The journal is published quarterly by China Geology Editorial Office.

China Geology aims to be an innovative, high-impact and authoritative academic journal for researchers across the geoscience community. It primarily publishes new research results in multidisciplinary geosciences, together with traditional topics in geology. The journal seeks to promote research from all aspects of geoscience, including basic, applied and engineering research and applications, such as mineralogy, igneous and metamorphic petrology, geochemistry; sedimentology, paleontology, historical geology; petroleum geology and petroleum engineering, tectonic-orogenic geology (such as the Central Asian Orogenic Belt, Tethys-Himalayan tectonic domain, etc.), marine geology, geophysics, economic and applied geology (ore deposit research and exploration), remote sensing geology, engineering geology, oceanography, environmental geology and human health, urban geology, groundwater science and engineering, soil microorganism, soil heavy metal pollution, global climate change and carbon neutrality.

China Geology welcomes a range of submissions, from Original and Review Articles to Editorials, Short Communications (Research Advances), News and Highlights. These papers should be of both exceptional quality and interest in the geosciences field. Review Articles are specially invited and authored by leading experts to bring the latest research to the wider community. Careful consideration is taken into account for form and content, with an emphasis on international focus. All papers are subject to international peer review.
