Publications Database

The ArcticNet Publications Database is a subset of the Arctic Science and Technology Information System (ASTIS) database housed at the Arctic Institute of North America in Calgary, Alberta. ArcticNet’s refereed and non-refereed scientific publications can be accessed through this searchable archive. The ArcticNet Publications Database describes 4907 publications from ArcticNet, 359 publications from the Canadian Arctic Shelf Exchange Study (CASES) and 211 publications from the International North Water Polynya Study (NOW).

IRIS Reports​

To address the identified knowledge gaps and research challenges, ArcticNet’s Core Research Program is grouped into five Integrated Regional Impact Studies (IRIS): Western High Arctic and Kitikmeot, Eastern High Arctic, Nunavik-Nunatsiavut, Hudson Bay, and the upcoming Yukon, Northwest Territories, and Kivaliq region. IRIS studies are an iterative process based on ongoing community consultation and aim to meet the needs identified by Northern stakeholders. All IRIS Reports are available on the ArcticKT Portal or by clicking the reports below.
