Dear Colleagues,

The Interagency Arctic Research Policy Committee (IARPC) is seeking comment from the public on newly revised Principles for Conducting Research in the Arctic<https://www.iarpccollaborations.org/principles.html>.

IARPC is interested in all comments on the Principles document, including the core principles and sub-bullets describing the approaches that researchers are encouraged to adopt across all stages of research. The core Principles for Conducting Research in the Arctic are:
*         Be Accountable
*         Establish Effective Two-way Communication
*         Respect Local Culture and Knowledge
*         Build and Sustain Relationships
*         Pursue Responsible Environmental Stewardship

The IARPC Principles Revision Working Group revised the existing Principles for the Conduct of Research in the Arctic, adopted on June 28, 1990, and published by IARPC in volume 9, (Spring, 1995, pp.56-57) of the journal "Arctic Research of the United States" (https://www.arctic.gov/publications/related/arotus.html). The 1990 version has now been updated and renamed Principles for Conducting Research in the Arctic, hereafter the Principles, to reflect current research disciplines and approaches in the Arctic. The Principles Revision Working Group prepared the draft revised Principles after a year-long process that included a comprehensive literature review and seeking and receiving diverse input from Alaska Native people, Federal and State and local agency representatives, and researchers by a variety of methods, including listening sessions at scientific conferences, through a Federal Register Notice, and targeted interviews with Alaska residents and researchers. The Principles are directed at federally-funded researchers, though they may be useful to academic, state, local, and tribal researchers in the Arctic.
