Springer has launched the Polar Platform, a unique platform dedicated to research in polar sciences. The platform aims at developing a comprehensive collection of books, open access publications, journal articles and reference works published as part of Springer’s polar sciences programme. It also features interviews with leading researchers in this field and provides an overview of publication options.

In the continuing scenario of climate change, interest in polar sciences is rapidly expanding. The POLAR2018 conference with more than 2,000 participants attending in Davos this week is testament to the growing importance of research in the Arctic and Antarctic regions. To meet the changing needs of the research community, Springer has significantly expanded its polar sciences programme in the recent years.

“The Polar Platform launched by Springer serves as springboard into Springer’s reference work articles, books and journal publications related to the interdisciplinary field of polar science. It perfectly meets the increasing need of updated and easily accessible scientific information, necessary to address the new research as well as to legitimate economic and political actions in polar regions,” said Marino Vacchi from the Institute of Marine Sciences (ISMAR), which belongs to the Italian National Research Council (CNR).

Christian Witschel, Editorial Director, Earth Sciences, Geography & Environment at Springer said: “We are very excited to announce the Polar Platform which promises to be a unique and interdisciplinary platform for sharing and promoting research in polar sciences. The platform aims at promoting Springer’s growing collection of books and journals in this field. These publications underline Springer’s commitment to multi-disciplinary and innovative research in polar sciences.”

The Springer Polar Platform serves as a window into Springer’s extensive publications in polar sciences. Launched at the end of 2016, the Springer Polar Science Series publishes multi-disciplinary books dealing with a wide range of topics relevant to the Arctic and Antarctic. The Advances in Polar Ecology Series aims to foster the progress in the scientific knowledge about the polar and sub-polar regions of both hemispheres. In 2017, Springer also published its first open access book in this field, The Interconnected Arctic — UArctic Congress 2016, which had almost 43,000 downloads in one year.
