 The project

The Geology of Colombia Book is a national–scale editorial project of the Servicio Geológico Colombiano, a public science and technology institution responsible for advancing the research and generation of geoscientific knowledge and nuclear applications in Colombia. The Geology of Colombia will be the first edited and peer–reviewed book on Colombian geology. The book will present up–to–date geological knowledge of Colombia and will be distributed entirely free of charge.


Chapters that will be published in The Geology of Colombia Book are completed original research or compendiums that summarize a researcher(s) work. Regional significance or key geological events registered in the Colombian territory, such as Precambrian and Paleozoic orogenies, Precambrian to Cenozoic sedimentation, the first record of the Chicxulub impact in South America and magmatic events, will be addressed in the book.


Authors of The Geology of Colombia Book are the most remarkable and active geoscientists doing research in Colombia. Fourteen of the first twenty researchers on Colombian geology recognized by having the highest h–indices in Scopus are chapter authors. In total, 170 authors of 13 nationalities will publish in this book.


In addition to the support of the Scientific Committee, the editorial board counts on the support of 72 reviewers, who are among the most recognized researchers in fields such as tectonics, regional geology, petrology, geophysics, volcanology and Colombian geology. These reviewers were selected by the editorial board based on their expertise and outstanding scientific production, which is demonstrated by their high h–indices.


The Observatorio Colombiano de Ciencia y Tecnología, a Colombian institution responsible for supporting the sciences, technology and innovation processes, is linked to The Geology of Colombia Book, guaranteeing that the stages of the editorial process are achieved in the best way to obtain indexing by the Colombian Science and Technology Institute (Colciencias) and the Book Index Citation of Thomson Reuters.
