The International Journal of Circumpolar Health is published by Taylor & Francis on behalf of the Circumpolar Health Research Network (CHRN),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. The journal follows the tradition initiated by its predecessor, Arctic Medical Research. The journal specializes in circumpolar health. 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. It is a vehicle for dissemination and exchange of knowledge among researchers, policy makers, practitioners, and those they serve.

International Journal of Circumpolar Health welcomes Original Research Articles, Review Articles, Short Communications, Book Reviews, Dissertation Summaries, History and Biography, Clinical Case Reports, Public Health Practice, Conference and Workshop Reports, and Letters to the Editor.  If you have an idea for a manuscript or Special Issue that is not included here, or would like to serve as a peer reviewer, please feel free to contact the Editor-in-Chief at rmjohnson2@alaska.edu.
