The Chief Editor welcomes you to a free, green Polar Research
AbstractPolar Research is now an open-access journal, freely available to anyone with a computer and connection to the internet. Now readers around the world will have free access to the latest scientific articles on climate, biodiversity, polar history and other diverse topics that are investigated in the polar regions. Doing away with a regular print edition has slashed the journal’s carbon footprint. As Polar Research’s Chief Editor for the last 12 years, I’ve shepherded the journal through several significant transitions, but none compares to this milestone in the publication’s 28-year history.
