Aims and Scopes

The Arctic & Antarctic International Journal of Circumpolar Socio-Cultural Issues (A&A-IJCSCI), is an international, peer-reviewed, scholarly journal published annually on behalf of the Foundation of High Studies on Antarctica and Extreme Environments (FAE, Argentina), and under the auspices of the International Association of Circumpolar Socio-Cultural Issues, the University of Iceland (Department of Sociology), and the University of Jyväskylä (Department of Social Sciences and Philosophy, Finland). The A&A-IJCSCI has been created to provide a forum for the socio-cultural analysis of both circumpolar regions.

1) Local Communities and Extreme Environments
2) Habitat, Social Interaction and Identity
3) Social Problems and Policies
4) Minorities and Aboriginal Cultures
5) Migration and Socio-cultural Integration
6) Prehistory and History
7) Literature and Arts
8) Geopolitics and International Relations
9) Arctic and Antarctic Comparative Studies
10) Other issues related to socio-cultural themes concerning circumpolar areas.
