The Antarctic Journal of the United States was published by the U. S. National Science Foundation Office of Polar Programs (NSF-OPP) from 1966 through 2002. It was preceded by four other publications: the Antarctic Status Report, USNC-IGY; the Bulletin of the U.S. Antarctic Projects Officer; the Antarctic Status Report; and the Antarctic Report. The journal documented U.S. activities in Antarctica and related activities in other locations. It also tracked trends in the U. S. Antarctic Program and reported on Antarctic Treaty meetings.
