Cover of the first issue of the Annals of Glaciology
Annals of Glaciology is the thematic scientific journal of the IGS, publishing peer-reviewed original papers on aspects of glaciology that fall within the theme of each Annals issue. The Annals was established in 1980, has been Gold Open Access since 2016 and is currently published in between one and five thematic issues per year. Every branch of glaciology has featured in at least one issue of the Annals, while recent themes have included Radioglaciology; Glaciers and Ice Sheets in a Warming Climate; Ice Core Drilling; Sea Ice; Glacial Erosion and Sedimentation, Cryoseismology; Cryosphere and Biosphere; and Glaciology in High Mountain Asia.
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🡕.
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.
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 minimize any delays.
