One of the main activities of the Society is being focused on publication of research findings of geographers mainly. The first publication of the journal, titled as “The Calcutta Geographical Review” (renamed as The Geographical Review of India since 1951) made its maiden appearance in September 1936, being enriched with various information and several valuable papers of world standard. Publication of the Review, ever since its inception, has been the most important and a vital activity of the Society. By the time of Golden Jubilee of the Society in 1983 as many as 1,115 articles and notes, contributed by no less than 582 authors were brought out in the Society’s journal. By the time of Platinum Jubilee of the Society in 2008 more than 2,000 research papers have been brought out in the journal. All these articles published in the journal covered as many as 50 topics of geography. The Geographical Review of India is brought out quarterly in the months of March, June, September and December. The journal contains articles, notes, book reviews, news etc. for professional geographers and others.
