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. Online access to the latest issues and archive is available via the Cambridge University Press "Cambridge Core." Some of our material is still available via IngentaConnect and the IGS site - see links in sidebar opposite.

As of 1 January 2016, the IGS entered into a publishing partnership with Cambridge University Press (CUP). The Annals of Glaciology are now published under a Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International Licence.

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak and the uncertainty it is creating, some reviews are currently taking longer than usual. We want to reassure authors that the Annals remains open to submissions and we’re doing our best to minimise any delays.

The Annals of Glaciology is listed in the ISI Web of Science. The impact factor as published in June 2021 was 2.318.

For authors wishing to submit to the Annals of Glaciology please visit our 'information for authors' page.

To check the status of a submitted manuscript please log into the Annals page on Manuscript Central.

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.
