China University of Geosciences Press(CUGP), founded in February 1985, is located on the bank of East Lake, to Nanwang Mounts and in the heart of the Wuhan East Lake National Innovation Demonstration Zone(popularly known as China Optics Valley). The press occupies an office building and a storehouse of nearly 2000 m2with convenient transportation, beautiful scenery, and pleasant environment.
Since foundation, we have been adhering to the publishing policy of serving socialism and the people, and to the correct political orientation, publishing orientation and value orientation; we have also been firmly grasping the requirements of high-quality development. Based on the needs of our university and the land and resources industry, and by firmly relying on our advantageous and characteristic disciplines on earth science, we have formed an “academic-based and education-oriented” idea. We have been unswervingly following the path of “specialization, refinement, speciality and innovation” by strengthening the construction of jewelry culture, vigorously developing vocational education projects, actively expanding the market of popular science on geosciences, and promoting digital publishing based on geoscience education and academic publishing. Thus, we have formed a publishing pattern based on geoscience education and academic publishing with jewelry culture and popular science on geosciences flourishing jointly.
For years, the CUG Press has published more than 4500 books: series of academic monograph, textbooks for under graduates and popular science readings, involving fundamental geology, resources prospecting and engineering, environmental geology engineering, areal geology survey, preventive treatment of geological disasters, jewellery and so forth. Among them, dozens of projects are supported by publishing funds at or above the provincial and ministerial levels. We acquire a high popularity and reputation in geological higher education and geological prospecting industry. Furthermore, we have made due contributions to serving our university’s teaching and scientific research, serving Hubei’s regional economic and cultural development, greatly improving our ability to serve the geological and mining industry, promoting international academic exchanges on geoscience, participating in the “one belt and one road” initiative, supporting local economic and social development as well as cultural construction.
