The Journal subject

The journal "Arctic: Ecology and Economy" is a research and analysis periodical that covers the main challenges and achievements of Russian and foreign science in the field of studying, exploration and providing favorable environmental conditions for the development of the Arctic zone of the Russian Federation and the Arctic as a whole.

The main purpose of the Journal is to provide the broad strata of the scientific community, employees of federal and regional legislative and executive bodies, research and production enterprises, students, graduate students and businessmen with the opportunity to get acquainted with the results of scientific research and applied developments on key issues of study and economic development of the Arctic, as well as the preservation of its unique ecology. The comprehensive coverage of the relevant issues of Arctic exploration and development favors the creation of scientific basis for justification of the government decisions on domestic and international Arctic issues and economic activities in the Arctic Ocean and adjacent areas. The study of ecological and geographical factors that can reduce risks in the development of the Arctic regions also has an important place here.

The tasks of the Journal are:

  • providing scientists with the opportunity to publish the results of their research on Arctic issues and to achieve an international level of scientific publications of the Journal;
  • attracting the attention of the scientific and business community to the most relevant and promising areas of research on the subject of the Journal;
  • involving in the journal authoritative domestic and foreign authors, who are specialists of the highest level.

For the purpose of an integrated approach to the problems of the Arctic, the magazine includes the following sections: "Economics and Management of the Arctic zone", "Ecology", "Research in the Arctic", "Research and development of the natural resources in the Arctic", "Shipbuilding for the Arctic", "Problems of the Northern Sea Route", "New technology for development in the Arctic ", "Problems of the Regions", "Governance in the Arctic", "Safety of human activities in the Arctic", "The quality and standard of living of North Indigenous Peoples".
