Attention contributors!

Because of the rapidly growing interest in publishing in Polar Research as an open access journal, and the demands this places on the editorial office, the journal is now charging publication fees on accepted articles exceeding five typeset pages in the journal's design. The first five pages are free; each additional page is 180 USD, excl VAT. There is no cost for supplementary material. The fee applies only to submissions made after this announcement has been posted (19 September 2014). Contributors of submissions accepted before the end of 2014 will not be billed until 2015.
