Special Column "The third Cryosphere Science Youth Forum" calls for papers



Information of “The third Cryosphere Science Youth Forum”

The youth working committee of the China Society of Cryospheric Science was established in May 2021. The Cryosphere Science Youth Forum is an innovation and exchange platform for young scholars sponsored by the youth working committee of the China Society of Cryospheric Science. It aims to broaden the research field of vision, track the cutting-edge trends, and achieve interdisciplinary integration and innovation for young scholars of cryosphere science through academic exchanges.

The first Youth Forum of Cryospheric Science was successfully held by Northwest Institute of Eco-Environment and Resources, Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), at Lanzhou in May 2021 focusing the theme of interdisciplinary intersection, which effectively promoted the interdisciplinary integration and promoted the ideological collision and sustainable development for young scholars.

The second Youth Forum of Cryospheric Science was organized by Beijing Jiaotong University, Institute of Tibetan Plateau Research, CAS, and Chinese Academy of Meteorological Sciences, held at Beijing in April, 2023.

In order to further strengthen the cross integration of cryospheric science and related disciplines, promote the cooperation and exchange of young scientific researchers in the field of cryosphere research, and contribute wisdom to the comprehensive development of cryospheric science, the organizing committee of the forum decided to hold 'The third Youth Forum of Cryospheric Science ' hosted by Southwest Petroleum University at Chengdu on April 12–14, 2024. The theme of this forum is 'Cryospheric science, engineering and sustainable development.'


Special Column Information

In order to broaden the research horizons of young scientists of cryospheric science, track the frontier trends, and realize interdisciplinary integration and innovation, a special column was organized. The theme of this column is 'Publishing frontier and innovative achievements in cryosphere scientific research and engineering practice to face the major strategic needs of the country'. Young scientists engaged in cryosphere scientific research and engineering practice in the fields of cold region engineering construction, cold region geography and environment, and cold region resource development are warmly invited to contribute to this Special Column.


Journal Introduction

Research in Cold and Arid Regions (RCAR) is a bimonthly journal that publishes the latest research achievements in processes and the patterns of the Earth surface system in cold and arid regions in English. Researches in cold regions emphasize particularly on the cold-region-characterized physical, chemical and biological processes and their interactions, and on the response of cryosphere to global change and human activities as well as their effects on environment and the acclimatizable strategies; focus on the objects of glacier, snow, river, lake, sea ice, permafrost and seasonal frozen ground, and periglacial geomorphology, etc.; and think much of cold regions engineering and technology. Researches in arid regions emphasize particularly on the arid-region-characterized physical, chemical and biological processes and their interactions, and on the response of arid regions to global change and human activities as well as their effects on environment and the acclimatizable strategies; focus on the objects of desert, oasis, loess, and aeolian landforms, etc.; and support integrated studies on mountain-desert-oasis system in arid watershed with water resources as masterstroke, so as to provide reliable technological support for water safety, ecology safety and food safety in arid regions.

Manuscript Submission Information

Research in Cold and Arid Regions operates an online submission and rigorous peer review system. To submit a manuscript, please visit journal’s Homepage, www.scar.ac.cn or directly enter https://www.keaipublishing.com/en/journals/research-in-cold-and-arid-regions/, viewing Guideline to get more submission details. The Submission Column “The third Cryosphere Science Youth Forum” should be chosen for getting quick publishing access. The signed Copyright Transfer Form (Download on Journal's Home Page) should be scanned and uploaded as 'Supplementary files not for review' with the online submission of your article. Authors are encouraged to suggest the names and full contacting details of potential referees on the understanding that the Chief-Editor has the final decision on the referees' selection. As a double-blind peer review journal, the manuscript files without personal information is demanded to be uploaded to 'main documents', manuscript with personal information is demanded to be uploaded to 'title page'. Submission of a manuscript will be held to imply that it contains original unpublished work and not yet submitted to elsewhere.
