Annals of Glaciology

Annals cover

The Annals of Glaciology is a thematic journal that contains papers on specific themes as determined by the IGS Council upon recommendation from the Publications Committee. Papers are peer-reviewed and edited prior to publication. Recent Annals are available online and free of charge to IGS members and subscribers.

The Society is grateful to our founder's widow, Loris Seligman, for a generous bequest that made it possible to publish back issues of the Society's journals online for the benefit of glaciologists worldwide.

The Annals of Glaciology is listed in the ISI Web of Science. The impact factor as published in July 2014 was 2.524.

Author contribution statement

Lead authors may now add a short end-note to papers summarizing the roles and contributions of co-authors to their paper. As some co-authors contribute the majority of analysis and synthesis and others contribute by researching and collecting raw data, this would not only benefit individuals who contribute to a given study, but would help authors applying for grants, new posts and other professional evaluations.

The Contribution Statement is voluntary, and should be inserted above any other acknowledgements at the end of the paper, e.g.

Example Contribution Statement

A performed all calculations and wrote most of the paper, B collected data on infrared albedo measurements, C investigated snow grain morphology, D analysed the XXX data and helped in writing this paper.
