Why does not my article/dataset/contribution exist in the Open Polar? 

Open Polar harvest only the open-access articles from 4600 providers, including e.g., open access journals and open archives. If your article does not exist in Open Polar, the reason can be one of the following: 

  • The article is not open access in one way or another. 
  • The article is not hosted at one of the providers that we are harvesting. 
  • The article has not keywords (in the title, abstract, or keyword section) that indicate a relation to the Polar Regions. 
  • The article is published very recently and has not yet been harvested by Open Polar.
