This section highlights the APECS involvement in longer-term projects funded by various funding sources. Some projects were initiated by APECS and in others APECS is involved as a partner responsible for certain tasks related to the training of early career researchers, education and outreach.
One of the goals of APECS is to create a network of polar researchers across disciplines and national boundaries to meet, share ideas and experiences, and develop new research directions and collaborations. Our members represent all natural and social sciences research disciplines involved in research in the Polar and Alpine regions and the wider cryopshere.
One of the great opportunities that APECS presents for early career researchers is its ability to connect researchers of the same, or similar disciplines, as well as motivate researchers who might have an interest in broadening their academic spectrum into new fields of research. Find some short introductions to some of the research areas involved in Polar and Alpine research.
In this section we highlight some of our members research presented over the years as part of APECS online events, such as APECS webinars, the APECS International Online Conference, Virtual Posters Sessions and Research Features.
Here you will find a list of the key journal titles publishing research related to polar regions.
A vast amount of information is being collected which is only useful for future scientists if it is properly managed and archived. The majority of funding organisations now require clear data management policies as a condition of funding. This section explains the importance of metadata and provides links to data management guidelines and to existing databases of relevance to polar researchers.
