Journal History

The first volume of this publication series was published in 1938. 23 volumes had been issued before the 2nd World War followed by a period of suspended publication in 1939–1945. Since 1952, Biuletyn Państwowego Instytutu Geologicznego was gradually divided into thematic series such as “Quaternary investigations”, “Micropalaeontological investigations”, “Geological research in the Carpathians”, “Geophysical investigations”, “Hydrogeological investigations in Poland” etc. However, the increasing number of interdisciplinary publications resulted in cancellation of the thematic series and, in 1985 (volume 348), Biuletyn Państwowego Instytutu Geologicznego returned to its original form.

But there was one exception! In 1999 the thematic series Hydrogeology was reactivated.

Biuletyn Państwowego Instytutu Geologicznego publishes scientific contributions on regional geology of Poland and related scientific fields, as well as conference materials from domestic and international conferences.
