The Journal of Geosciences Research (JGSR), a bi-annually published scientific journal by the Gondwana Geological Society (GGS) has been gradually gaining popularity for its timely release and high-quality single/ double peer-reviewed articles. It has been receiving an overwhelming response from the geoscientific community across India allowing us to accommodate the articles with the high-quality scientific information and research data in the JGSR. The priority has been given to the articles with the global or regional significance for the publication in the JGSR after peer review.

We are trying to provide the maximum outreach to the articles published in the JGSR by making them available on the JGSR website and through the circulation amongst readers. With the continuous support and guidance of well-wishers and readers of the JGSR, we are constantly trying to enhance the quality of the JGSR. In this connection, I am delighted to update our erudite readers that the JGSR now has been indexed /abstracted in the Indian Citation Index (ICI), New Delhi. Besides this, we are making endeavors to index/ abstract the JGSR in many other scientific agencies/organizations in near future to disseminate the scientific information/knowledge to the wide range of geoscientific fraternity.

I am pleased to share exciting news that the GGS has been granted a membership of scholarly publishers of the International repute ‘Crossref’. After fulfilling the documentation to ‘Crossref’, the JGSR has received the Digital Object Identifier (DOI) to be used for the various articles published in it. Henceforth, the every article/ document published in the JGSR will have the specific DOI number. The DOI would facilitate the articles published in the JGSR to get the wide scale National/ International recognition. The readers of the JGSR can always find out the origin of the article/document using the permanently adhered DOI to it.

I am fully aware of the long-pending demand/request from the readers to get the impact factor to the JGSR. With continuous support from the ever-energetic Joint Editor and Editorial Team and the office bearers of the GGS, we are in the process to accomplish the minimum requirements set by various scientific agencies at the International level to achieve the status of ‘Scientific Citation Index (SCI)’ Journal for the JGSR. We are very much sure and confident with the everlasting support from all of you to fulfill this long  pending dream of ours and all the well-wishers very soon.

I earnestly request all the readers of the JGSR to convey their invaluable suggestions for further improvement in the content of the JGSR. I sincerely thank our Joint Editor, Editorial Board Members and most importantly our scholarly reviewers for their unstinted support to maintain the quality content of the JGSR. Finally, I really thank the official printers of the GGS, ‘M/SAishwarya Graphics’ for incessant co-operation and time to time support in keeping the superb quality and timely release of the publications.
