24 Years of Great Lakes Research is Online

The International Association for Great Lakes Research (IAGLR) announces the online release of 24 years of Great Lakes research in an effort to better inform public policy with sound science.

IAGLR has converted its hard copy archive of the Journal of Great Lakes Research to electronic format (PDF) and made it easily accessible with a searchable database on its Web site. It is available at www.iaglr.org/jglr/db/search.php.

The archive is the only resource of its kind: a multidisciplinary, peer-reviewed collection of papers from various scientific, management, and policy perspectives on the Great Lakes. Development was supported by the Joyce Foundation.

"Online access to this resource will not only promote communication among researchers, but will provide Great Lakes policy makers, managers, nongovernmental organizations, the media, students, and concerned citizens with easy access to the largest repository of Great Lakes research in the world," said Joseph DePinto, IAGLR's publication committee chairman.

"We hope that timely access to this scientific information will strengthen the science-policy linkage in the Great Lakes Basin and promote better management of one-fifth of the world's standing freshwater."

Since 1967, IAGLR has compiled and disseminated knowledge on North America's Laurentian Great Lakes and other large lakes of the world. IAGLR communicates this knowledge through publication of the Journal of Great Lakes Research (established in 1975) and sponsorship of an annual conference on Great Lakes research (begun in 1953). IAGLR is a nonprofit organization supported primarily by membership dues, private donations and income generated from its annual conference.
