Presentation of the "Journal of Antarctic Affairs: Volume IV"

Post date: 12/09/2017

The Journal Antarctic Affairs (Asuntos Antárticos) is an academic publication by Agenda Antártica and the Antarctic and Southern Ocean Coalition (ASOC) with the goal of publishing and broadcasting the most prominent and influential research related to Antarctica. The Journal, launched in 2015, publishes articles, reviews and official documents both in English and Spanish. The Journal also strives to stimulate research that will favor the environmental protection of Antarctica and the Southern Ocean. The Journal has an Editorial Board that reviews and approves proposed articles before their publication.

The Journal's fourth issue is dedicated to one of the most relevant topics related to the conservation of Antarctica: the creation of a net of Protected Marine Areas (AMPs) in the Southern Ocean. In October 2016, the members of the Commission for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources (CCRVMA) put the initiative into motion by creating the world’s largest protected marine area in the Ross Sea, setting an international milestone in the conservation of ocean life. The fourth issue of the Journal is mainly composed of articles that detail not only this process but also the current state in the development of new protected areas and the future of the conservation of the Southern Ocean.
