The Arctic is undergoing a major transformation. Climate change and modernization are bringing important issues, including the health of Northerners, melting sea-ice, intercontinental shipping, sovereignty, resource exploitation, and the environment, to the forefront of national and international agendas. Circumpolar nations face an increased urgency to expand the observational capacity needed to formulate strategies and policies that will minimize the negative impacts and maximize the positive outcomes of this transformation.

Publishing in high impact journals is often one of the ultimate goals for scientists. Even if the current impact factor measures are not of everybody’s liking, it is no doubt that in the current academic settings it is easier to obtain the next grant, the next promotion or even the next job if your count with high impact publications in your CV. But what actually makes the difference between a «normal» scientific publication and a high impact one?

This workshop aims to bring concerned and/or interested individuals together to hear the latest research, policy implications, community perspectives, and potential impacts along Alaska’s coast and oceans. We know that Alaska is experiencing a rapid and severe onset of OA relative to many other coastal regions. Studies also show that Alaskan coastal communities have varying degrees of vulnerability to OA, ranging from moderate to severe, with the most vulnerable located in regions where fisheries are primary economic drivers of local economies.
