Journal History

The first issue of the Mongolian Geoscientist was published in October, 1996. Firstly, Mongolian Geoscientist was published to show the reports, lectures and topics of the technical transfer programs of "Institute of Geology and Mineral Resources" project by JICA. Publications of this journal were expected to accelerate the technical transfer and the exchange of information within the project.  

After finishing the JICA project in 1999, Mongolian Geoscientist journal organized by different geological organizations in Mongolia such as Mineral Resources Authority of Mongolia, Mongolian University of Science and Technology, Geological Investigation Center, Institute of Geology and Mineral resources, Mongolian Academy of Sciences, and The Geological Society of Mongolia. Since 2008, the Mongolian Geoscientist became the Bulletin of the Mongolian Geological Society. The Mongolian Geological Society was going to cover regional and global information of earth science and relevant technology in East Eurasia. A role of Mongolian Geoscientist was to be as a journal for all persons who are interested in Mongolian geology. Mongolian Geoscientist focuses on all subjects of earth science and relevant technology. However the journal was inactive during 2010-2012.

In 2013, The Mongolian Geological Society is renewing the editorial board and main management of the journal is carried out by School of Geology and Petroleum Engineering, Mongolian University of Science and Technology. At that stage, Mongolian Geoscientist level up the purpose and renewing requirements of publication.
