Read 'What Makes A Good Paper For PPP?'

The Transactions of the International Permafrost Association contain review papers that are commissioned to present the state of permafrost science and engineering at the time of the quadrennial International Conferences. The reviews may be presented at the conferences, as was the case for several of the papers published here. The Transactions are jointly organized by the IPA and Permafrost and Periglacial Processes; the review of manuscripts and production of the Transactions have used the standard process and infrastructure of the journal and its publisher. The Transactions are published as a special issue of Permafrost and Periglacial Processes.
