International Journal of Circumpolar Health (IJCH) specializes in Arctic and Antarctic health issues. It provides a forum for many disciplines, including the biomedical sciences, social sciences, and humanities as they relate to human health in high latitude environments. The journal has a particular interest in the health of indigenous peoples.
The journal is a vehicle for dissemination and exchange of knowledge among researchers, policy makers, practitioners, and those they serve. The Chief Editor is supported by specialist Section Editors, overseeing the rigorous peer-review of submissions from around the world.
International Journal of Circumpolar Health welcomes Research papers, Review articles, Short communications, Circumpolar Voices, Book reviews, PhD summaries, and Letters to the Editor.
All regular papers will be published immediately after they have been accepted and proofs finalized. Thematic clusters of articles and Supplements are published occasionally and will be collated into online collections published at one and the same time. Read more here.
International Journal of Circumpolar Health is published by Co-Action Publishing on behalf of the Circumpolar Health Research Network, an organization based in Canada and registered under the Northwest Territories Societies Act. The journal was established in 1972 and became an open access journal at the beginning of 2012 at which time print subscription sales also ceased.
As from January 1, 2013, a Publication fee of €500 excl VAT (Europe)/$650 (rest of the world) will be charged to the authors upon acceptance of their paper. All papers submitted after that date will be subject to payment.
