The Arctic Research Consortium of the U.S. (ARCUS) announces availability of a new webpage, Conducting Research with Northern Communities – Documented Practices and Resources for Productive, Respectful Relationships Between Researchers and Community Members. Scientific research in the Arctic necessitates good communication and cooperation with northern communities. This webpage is a compilation of resources, recommendations, and documented practices from a variety of organizations on working with northern communities. Resources include practices from across the north, relevant information from outside the Arctic, and resources specific to community-based monitoring.

This webpage is intended to be a living resource and will be updated as new information becomes available. Please visit the link above for more information. This effort is supported by the National Science Foundation - Arctic Sciences Section through Cooperative Agreement PLR-1304316.
