In the context of its 25th anniversary this year, the International Arctic Science Committee (IASC) is pleased to present a comprehensive publication on its history from the planning process in the late 1980s until today. Printed as a special issue of the IASC yearbook, the publication compiles and analyzes the history and development of IASC and its initiatives and achievements. A collection of historical documents, a film and a brochure presenting a timeline of the most important events in the development of IASC in the last quarter of a century complement the publication.

The book „IASC After 25 Years“, edited by Odd Rogne, Volker Rachold, Louwrens Hacquebord and Robert Corell, as well as the supporting documents are now available on the IASC History Website: which is kindly hosted by the Arctic Portal. Printed copies of the publication will be available at the Arctic Science Summit Week (ASSW) 2015 in Toyama, Japan.
