The Complutense University of Madrid announces a call for manuscript submissions for the Young Researcher Innovation Award in Cryosphere Science and Mountain Areas. The awarded works will be published in two Special Issues of the journal Cuadernos de Investigación Geográfica/Geographical Research Letters, one including works related to the cryosphere science and the other focusing on mountain areas.

The purpose of this award is to promote research in mountain areas and cryospheric processes among young researchers working on these areas. Young researchers in the process of presenting a PhD thesis or those who have defended after 1 January 2014 are encouraged to participate.

Researchers must present an original unpublished work in a research article format, with a strong innovative approach, including new methods and breakthrough ideas that open new research perspectives.

Papers may be submitted by several authors, but only the first author will be eligible for the award. Each participant must also propose a senior researcher within their study area who will be an external evaluator for other works.

Research topics should be encompassed in one of the two main fields:

  • Cryosphere Science including glaciology, permafrost, snow cover, frozen soils, glacial and periglacial geomorphology, or biological processes in frozen areas; and
  • Research on Mountain Areas including meteorology, climatology, tectonics, geomorphology, volcanism, soils, biogeography, torrential dynamics, natural hazards, geoheritage, management issues, or territorial planning.

The research articles must be written in English.

Manuscript submission deadline: 1 September 2018
