Focus and Scope

ARCTIC is a peer-reviewed, primary research journal that publishes the results of scientific research from all areas of circumpolar scholarship. Original scholarly papers in the physical, social, and biological sciences, humanities, engineering, and technology are included, as are book reviews, commentaries, letters to the editor, and profiles of significant people, places, or events of northern interest. The journal is multidisciplinary; any manuscript submitted for publication should, therefore, be of potential appeal not only to specialists but also to readers whose principal interests do not coincide directly with the subject addressed in the paper.
