CGG is the journal of the Earth Science Institute of the Slovak Academy of Sciences (since July 2015), formerly of the Geophysical Institute of the SAS, which merged in July 2015 with the Geological Institute of the SAS to form the ESI SAS with two divisions (geology and geophysics). CGG is a successor of the journal Contribution of the Geophysical Institute of the SAS published by the institute (once per annum, ISSN 0586-4607) since 1969 and its associated “Series of Meteorology” (once per annum, ISBN 80-224-0187-0) since 1974. Since 1998 (Vol. 28) the CGG had been published in print as 4 issues per annum. Since 2009 the 4 issues are published also electronically as Open Access fulltexts by De Gruyter. In 2014 (Vol. 44) the print production stops and CGG becomes electronic only.
