The Geological Society of Africa (GSAf) was established in 1973 to encourage geoscientific collaboration and cooperation across the
Its main objectives are:
- to promote understanding of the earth sciences and improve standards of earth science education and research in
- to provide a forum for discussion and dissemination of information across national boundaries between scientists, associations and institutions engaged in African geology and earth
- to promote the development and sustainable management of the continent's earth resources, to advance its socio-economic development; and
- to improve natural hazards assessment and disaster mitigation.
The Journal of African Earth Sciences sees itself as the prime geological journal for all aspects of the geology of the African continent
and the Middle East, and especially on the search for natural resources from these regions.
This international interdisciplinary journal publishes high quality, peer-reviewed scientific papers on the geodynamics of the African
and Arabian plates and their contained mobile belts, cratons and sedimentary basins; the crustal evolution, tectonics and structural geology
of this region; economic geology of major mineral deposits and hydrocarbon resources; sedimentology, stratigraphy and palaeontology, petrology
and mineralogy, geochemistry and isotope geology of Africa and the Middle East.
