Solicitations for front cover illustrations for IGS journals
Dear Cryolist members
Please bear in mind that suggestions for illustrations for the front covers of
Journal of Glaciology and Annals of Glaciology are always welcome. Most of our covers show photographs with strong visual appeal, but we have also seen photomicrographs, satellite imagery in various spectral bands, and other striking subjects.
For example the latest issue 235 of the Journal (October 2016; https://www.cambridge.org/core/journals/journal-of-glaciology
) shows a map of changes of glacier surface temperature across the Queen Elizabeth Islands of Arctic Canada. Issues 176–179 (2006) carry Mark Meier’s painting
Icy shore. And issue 8 of the Annals (Glacier Mapping and Surveying, 1985) shows a map of Iceland published in 1590.
If you have an illustration that you think would be suitable for a front cover, you can suggest it when you submit a manuscript containing the illustration.
If you have an illustration not directly tied to a published paper, it will be just as welcome, although you should hold the copyright and be willing to licence it to IGS; simply send it to Craig Baxter ([hidden email])
with a copy to Magnús Magnússon ([hidden email]). A draft caption, describing
the illustration and giving appropriate credits, should be provided. Captions appear on the back cover.
The space for IGS cover illustrations has an aspect ratio, width to height, of about 3 to 4. We will consider any image or collage that can be fitted
satisfactorily within these dimensions.
