Antarctic Science provides a truly international forum for the broad spread of studies that increasingly characterise scientific research in the Antarctic. The Journal welcomes submissions across the breadth of Antarctic research from biodiversity to ice sheets, from volcanoes to the deep sea, from oceanography to the upper atmosphere and space, and from environmental management to the humanities and the application of science to Antarctic governance. The Journal seeks to attract papers from all countries currently undertaking Antarctic research. It publishes different types of papers, including synthesis/review and data papers, perspective and opinion pieces, short notes on technical developments and recent discoveries, and book reviews. These, together with editorials discussing broader aspects of Antarctic science, provide a rich and varied mixture to interest and stimulate researchers in all areas of science. The Journal welcomes suggestions and proposals for Special Issues and review papers, and offers of guest editorials.
