After two years of project work, the University Library at UiT Norway’s Arctic University is proud to launch a search portal where you can find all available research-based information about the polar areas in one place, both scientific articles, reports, and datasets. The search portal is developed in collaboration with researchers from the Norwegian Polar Institute and UiT Norway’s Arctic University.

The Open Polar, The Global Open Access Portal for Research Data and Publications on the Arctic and Antarctic was launched in Tromsø on 1 September, 2021.
