Alaska Park Science is an award-winning journal published by the National Park Service, Alaska Regional Office. The journal reports information from on-going and recently completed research in and around Alaska’s national parklands. Alaska Park Science covers all relevant scientific disciplines in the biological, physical, cultural, and social sciences.

Although Alaska Park Science is not a discipline-specific journal, we are committed to excellence in quality and accuracy. Therefore all articles are reviewed by at least two individuals with sufficient technical or scientific expertise in the subject matter to offer substantive comments on the content of the article. See more information in the Guidelines for Authors.

Decisions about the journal are made by an editorial board consisting of the Alaska Regional Chief Scientist and Editor in Chief, the Chief of Natural Resources, Chief of Cultural Resources, Alaska Regional Inventory and Monitoring Program Manager, and the regional Science Communication Specialist. In addition, each issue is led by a Guest Editor who works directly with the authors and manages article reviews. See more information in Guidelines for Being a Guest Editor.
