NEEM publications

The NEEM publication procedure aims at making the publications easily available to the wider community as well as ensuring that all NEEM members are aware of upcoming publications based on NEEM data. The procedure is part of the NEEM data and publication policy, which has been adopted by the Steering Committee. In short, the author(s) presenting new NEEM data should seek prior approval of the publication plans and supply information about the manuscript after acceptance and publication:

  • An abstract of the paper (including an author list, preliminary title, and an outline of which data are presented) is sent to the SC chair who circulates the information to the NEEM-members mailing list for approval. At the same time, the title and author list is made available on this page.
  • If submitting to a journal with open review, please provide a link to the manuscript in review when available.
  • The published paper should contain the following acknowledgment paragraph:
    NEEM is directed and organized by the Center of Ice and Climate at the Niels Bohr Institute and US NSF, Office of Polar Programs. It is supported by funding agencies and institutions in Belgium (FNRS-CFB and FWO), Canada (NRCan/GSC), China (CAS), Denmark (FIST), France (IPEV, CNRS/INSU, CEA and ANR), Germany (AWI), Iceland (RannIs), Japan (NIPR), Korea (KOPRI), The Netherlands (NWO/ALW), Sweden (VR), Switzerland (SNF), United Kingdom (NERC) and the USA (US NSF, Office of Polar Programs).
  • When the manuscript is accepted by a journal, the first author is welcome to supply a preprint which is made available to the NEEM community via a password-protected link in the publication list below. At this stage, the paper will be assigned a number in the series of NEEM publications.
  • When the paper is published, the first author should provide the updated title and author information and a link to the published paper so that the publication list can be updated and a publication number can be assigned.

Please send abstracts, preprints and final pdf-versions of published papers to
