The Barents Journal
Start date: Dec 17, 2012,
End date: Apr 16, 2015
The project aims at joint development of The Barents Journal – an easy available international academic journal – as a tool for delivering current research results concerning the people and the region, as well as socio-economic, political, environmental developments, and thus providing information outside and within the programme area. The keynote idea of the project is to share and distribute topical research results and broaden understanding of the Barents region in the global, social, political and economic contexts. Achievements: The project saw the birth of the first academic journal concentrating on the Barents region. It debates aspects affecting regional development, and popularizes research results by sharing topical scientific news. The Barents Studies Journal is directed at researchers and students, but also to the man on the street: A popularized supplement issue, was published in 2014, that provided many stories about everyday life and research in the Barents Region. The project has expanded the understanding of the Barents Region in a global, social, political and economic context, and increased international awareness of the region.
