Advances in Polar Science (APS) is changing and improving with the establishment of the International Editorial Board with two new Co-Editors-in-Chief (Prof. Huigen Yang and Prof. Ian Allison), and a new expert team of disciplinary Editors in June of 2015. It has no publication fees and all articles are freely accessible on the web as soon as they are released.
In 2017, APS has a new category of paper, the Opinion Editorial (Op-Ed). This, with a maximum length of 2 pages, provides a forum to comment on the status and/or deficiencies of any aspect of polar science, to reflect on recent innovation or progress, and to promote internationally collaborative polar science projects.
APS is an international, peer-reviewed journal jointly sponsored by the Polar Research Institute of China (PRIC) and the Chinese Arctic and Antarctic Administration (CAA). It is a quarterly journal, circulated internationally (ISSN 1674-9928, CN 31-2050/P).
