About the Journal
Polar Research is the peer-reviewed journal of the Norwegian Polar Institute, Norway's central institution for research, environmental monitoring and mapping of the polar regions. Promoting the global exchange of scientific knowledge about the Arctic and Antarctic across disciplinary boundaries, Polar Research was the first all open access polar journal. The journal has been awarded the DOAJ Seal by the Directory of Open Access Journals for its openness and high publishing standards. From the first issue in 1982 to the current volume, all articles are available to readers free of charge. APCs are comparatively low.
