The Bulletin of the Geological Society of Malaysia (ISSN 0126-6187) is a peer-reviewed interdisciplinary journal which publishes Earth Science research that addresses not only trending research areas but also high quality application topics. The scope of published articles covers engineering geology, environmental geology, geochemistry, geomorphology, geophysics, hydrogeology, mining geology, paleontology, petroleum geology, regional geology, sedimentology, stratigraphy, structural geology and tectonics.

The Bulletin supports researchers primarily focusing on Asia/SE Asia, but is not limited to this region, and publishes research papers of both scientific and technical nature that are of current interest and have potential impact on activities such as oil & gas exploration, mining, environmental issues, earthquakes, hazard assessment, disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation. The Bulletin also promotes geological interest on subjects of a conservation nature such as geoheritage and geotourism.
