|Polar ecosystems and the life of organisms in the extreme polar environment are of interest to a rapidly increasing number of scientists working in different fields of biological and environmental research. Polar Biology should not only be the focal point for scientists working in polar regions but should also attract the interest of those working in biology in general ecology and physiology in general ecology and physiology as well as in oceanography and climatology related to polar life. Polar Biology presents results of all kinds of studies in plants animals and micro-organisms of marine limnic and terrestrial habitats of arctic and antarctic regions. Life history Ecology of organisms and communities Morphology and taxonomy Distribution abundance and biogeography Dynamics of populations Physiology of growth metabolism and reproduction Behaviour and sensory physiology Ecosystem studies Polar Biology publishes Original Papers, Reviews, and Short Notes and is the focal point for biologists working in polar regions. It is also of interest to scientists working in biology in general, ecology and physiology, as well as in oceanography and climatology related to polar life. Polar Biology presents results of studies in plants, animals, and micro-organisms of marine, limnic and terrestrial habitats in polar and subpolar regions of both hemispheres.
The impact factor of journal provides quantitative assessment tool for grading, evaluating, sorting and comparing journals of similar kind. It reflects the average number of citations to recent articles published in science and social science journals in a particular year or period, and is frequently used as a proxy for the relative importance of a journal within its field. It is first devised by Eugene Garfield, the founder of the Institute for Scientific Information.The impact factor of a journal is evaluated by dividing the number of current year citations to the source items published in that journal during the previous two years
