Antarctic Journal of the United States and its Predecessors

Antarctic Journal of the United States, established in 1966, reported on U.S. activities in Antarctica, related activities elsewhere, and trends in the U.S. Antarctic Program.

United States Antarctica Program logo The National Science Foundation (NSF) Office of Polar Programs published and distributed the journal, but in 2002 decided to discontinue publication. The decision to end publication drew, perhaps ironically, from the success of antarctic science. NSF-funded antarctic research entered the mainstream, minimizing the need for a special vehicle to insure its reception in the broader community. In addition, the Antarctic Journal was not peer reviewed; NSF's requests for contributions competed for time that researchers might have used to prepare papers for refereed journals, where the work receives fullest consideration.

Antarctic Journal of the United States (1966-1996) was preceded by four other publications: Antarctic Report (1964-1965); Antarctic Status Report (1962-1963); Bulletin of the U.S. Antarctic Projects Officer (1959-1965); and Antarctic Status Report USNC-IGY (1956-1958). The contents of each publication in the series are provided here as open-access documents in PDF format. For publications containing individual articles, individual PDFs are also provided.

More recent volumes of the Antarctic Journal of the United States are available on the website of the National Science Foundation Division of Polar Programs.
