As you know, Advances in Polar Science (APS) is an international, open-access journal jointly sponsored by the Polar Research Institute of China and the Chinese Society for Oceanography, published quarterly by China Science Press, for the whole Antarctic and Arctic science community.
We propose to publish one or two Special Issues each year on polar research projects, disciplinary topics or polar geographical regions of current interest. In particular, “Special Issues” will focus on those polar themes which have strong internally collaborative links.
An entire issue of the journal may be devoted to publishing the proceedings of an Antarctic or Arctic meeting, the special research theme for an Antarctic or Arctic cruises, or the research outcome of a polar scientific program.
Now we are calling for Good Proposal on 2021 Special Issues, for one special issue generally lasts 12 month from solicitation for papers to production. You can find the special issues published on APS (http://www.aps-polar.org/paper/specialissue).
Original papers are accepted from scientists of any nation, subject to peer review by at least two expert referees. APS publishes Reviews, Articles, Letters, Trends, Opinion Editorial. Opinion Editorial can be a statement of the opinion of a named author or authors, with a maximum of 1500 words (a maximum length of 2 printed pages). It will be directly reviewed by EICs with final decision without peer review by expert referrers.
Papers should focus on the polar regions. Papers making comparisons with other regions will also be acceptable. No cost of publication will be required and all papers will be subject to normal refereeing and editing.
You can see detail on APS’s website: www.aps-polar.org. We encourage you to share this announcement with your colleagues. Thank you for your interest and support in advance.
