​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​COMNAP Publications​

A number of guidelines are developed by COMNAP's Expert Groups and Networks with the aim of assisting National Programs implementing common procedures and practices to enhance operational effectiveness and safety. Whenever appropriate, these guidelines are forwarded to the Antarctic Treaty bodies, which may endorse them and officially recommend that all nations signatories to the Antarctic Treaty follow these guidelines.

 

COMNAP publishes or supports the production and distributions of a number of manuals and handbooks that provide National Programs and others with guidance in specialist fields of activity. Some of these publications may be produced by, or in conjunction with other Antarctic or International organisations.

 

In support of our aim to share best practice in managing support to science, COMNAP regularly convenes workshops on topical issues. Many of these workshops result in the development of 'reference' documents such as voluntary guidelines, manuals or handbooks. Some workshops produce self-contained reports or proceedings, available here. In some cases, authors of workshop presentations have agreed that their presentations can be made publicly available. Those presentations are also available here in PDF format.
