Periodicals, expedition reports and data publications
The Alfred Wegener Institute for Polar and Marine Research (AWI) acts as (co)publisher and/or issuing body of several serial publications: “Helgoland Marine Research”, “Polarforschung”, "Reports on Polar and Marine Research", and “WDC-Mare Reports”. Furthermore, AWI publishes and archives weekly expedition reports of the respective “Polarstern” expedition cruise legs. Special coverage was given to the weekly reports generated during the International Polar Year 2007/2008.
In order to support the reuse of high (reference) quality data of benefit to Earth System Sciences, AWI is the co-founder of one of the first data publishing journals Earth System Science Data (ESSD). Read more about ESSD
