Association of Polar Early Career Scientists


Are you a polar scientist who identifies as female L

We are an international research collective of PhD students and APECS members. We are working together on a review article as part of a collaboration between the journal PLOS Climate with members of APECS. Our article aims to identify recent developments and critical points of action within polar research, and proposes strategies to remove barriers to participation and improve the experiences of women in polar fieldwork. 

By filling out this survey you would help us document and gather empirical evidence on the polar fieldwork experience of researchers who identify as women. Filling in the survey takes about 5 to 15 minutes and will be completely anonymous. Thank you for contributing!
