Abstract Article III of the Antarctic Treaty outlines the way in which international cooperation, established during the International Geophysical Year, should be continued. Exchanges of scientists have occurred among many nations over the last 50 years, but increasing planning and logistics collaboration have marked the achievement of many major scientific goals possible only through multinational activity. The recently completed International Polar Year provides clear evidence of how well this is succeeding in Antarctic science for the twenty-first century, and the publication record clearly reflects this pooling of talent.
