Abstract The International Polar Year Publications Database (IPYPD) will attempt to identify and index all publications that result from the International Polar Year 2007- 08 (IPY). The IPYPD network includes the Arctic Science and Technology Information System (ASTIS), the Cold Regions Bibliography Project (CRBP), the Scott Polar Research Institute (SPRI) library and National Information Services Corporation (NISC). The IPYPD will be part of the IPY Data and Information Service (IPYDIS), led by the National Snow and Ice Data Center at the University of Colorado, and will use the IPY Data Policy to require researchers to report their publications. Depending on their subject and geographic scope, IPY publications will be reported to ASTIS, CRBP, or the SPRI library. (modif. auth. abstr.)
