Investigator Annual Reports

Each year researchers at all national parks submit an Investigator Annual Report (IAR) summarizing their findings to the National Park Service’s Research Permit and Reporting System (RPRS) website. You can search IAR’s by park, investigator name, year, or general subject heading. Researchers may apply online for a research and collecting permit.

Information for Researchers

Denali also hosts a number of academic researchers each year. Some researchers have sought special permission to conduct particular studies in the park, while others are awarded one of a variety of fellowships or researcher-in-residence status.
