The Geological Society of Sri Lanka (GSSL) was established in September 1983 during the first International Symposium on the Geology of Sri Lanka held at the University of Peradeniya as a non-profit scientific society. It has been the only one of the pre-eminent geological organization in Sri Lanka. The main objective of the society is to promote dissemination of all aspects of geological knowledge within Sri Lanka and to look into the interests of the individuals and organizations involved in the field of geosciences.

The GSSL is working with any interested group in planning symposia and other type of meetings related to geosciences. It will also advocate the improvement of employment standards of professional geologists in various organizations and will also assist undergraduates to improve their geological knowledge. The Journal of the society is the flagship publication which publishes peer-reviewed articles under the category of Review Papers, Research Papers, Short Communications, and book reviews. It is now published as peer-reviewed and open access journal. In addition to the Journal of the GSSL published annually, the Society also publishes quarterly newsletter and ventures on producing occasional special publications too. The annual sessions of the Society are held at the end of February each year, and it's the forum for presentation and discussion on current geoscience research.
