Bulletin scope: The Bulletin publishes contributions of international interest in all fields of geological sciences on results of new work on material from Denmark, the Faroes and Greenland. Contributions based on other material may also be submitted to the Bulletin if the subject is of relevance for the geology of the area of primary interest.

Organisation: The Bulletin is an Open Access journal published online only. It is managed by a chief editor with assistance of a co-editor and a board of scientific editors who handle manuscripts in which they have special expertise. Manuscripts are peer-reviewed by at least two independent scientists. The chief editor acts on the recommendations from the scientific editors; the final decisions rest with the chief editor. Scientific editing and reviewing are done on an unpaid collegial basis; technical production expenses are covered by the Geological Society membership fees. There are no charges. All articles are published as pdf-files immediately after acceptance and technical production. The articles issued during one year constitute one volume, except for special (thematic) volumes.

Archiving: Articles (searchable pdf files) are archived at the home page of the Geological Society of Denmark and at the Royal Library of Denmark. The Bulletin is indexed in Web of Science and GeoRef. All issues from volume 1 (1894) and onwards are available in electronic form.

Before 1970 the Bulletin’s primary name was Meddelelser fra Dansk Geologisk Forening, and papers were mainly published in Danish – some with abstracts in English, French or German. Papers from before 1999 have been made available as pdf-files through a grant from the Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation.
