The Explorers Club is an international multidisciplinary professional society dedicated to the advancement of field research and the ideal that it is vital to preserve the instinct to explore.

The Explorers Club is an international multidisciplinary professional society dedicated to the advancement of field research and the ideal that it is vital to preserve the instinct to explore. Since its inception in 1904, the Club has served as a meeting point and unifying force for explorers and scientists worldwide. Our headquarters is located at 46 East 70th Street in New York City.

Founded in New York City in 1904, The Explorers Club promotes the scientific exploration of land, sea, air, and space by supporting research and education in the physical, natural and biological sciences. The Club’s members have been responsible for an illustrious series of famous firsts: First to the North Pole, first to the South Pole, first to the summit of Mount Everest, first to the deepest point in the ocean, first to the surface of the moon—all accomplished by our members.

The Club provides expedition resources including funding, online information, and member-to-member consultation. And our famed annual dinners honor accomplishments in exploration. But probably the most powerful resource available to those who join the Club is fellowship with other members—a global network of expertise, experience, technology, industry, and support. The Explorers Club actively encourages public interest in exploration and the sciences through its public lectures program, publications, travel program, and other events. The Club also maintains Research Collections, including a library and map room, to preserve the history of the Club and to assist those interested and engaged in exploration and scientific research.

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS – WINTER LOG

This is a first call for submissions for the next issue of The Explorers Log, Winter 2021, which will be received by the members in February. Submissions are requested by December’s end, or sooner. The approximate schedule for a full-year, four-issues, is given below; this request is for the ‘green’ issue. The fall issue has been mailed.

Please send your submissions to log@explorers.org.

New submissions should be approximately 500 words, should reflect your chapter’s activities and, if desired, add two or three photographs (jpeg, 300 dpi resolution at approximately 8” as the shortest edge. Color or black & white are accepted; use the best out-of-camera resolution.)

Submit a caption for each photo, and credit the photographer, if known. Try to identify at least each Explorers Club member in a group photo. The document can be sent by email as text, as an attached Word (.doc), or as a Pages (.pages) file. Do not include the photographs within the text file, but do include the captions therein. Send photos as separate attachments.

Please read your submission for grammatical correctness and help by standardizing any member’s name. As a basic guide for titles, names and designations: for members, one space is placed between the name and membership designation. Here are some examples of the convention we use for professional notations: Dr. David Snow FI’79 (designation follows name without comma); Jane Smith Ph.D. FN’89 (designation follows single honorific without commas); John Jones J.D., Ph.D., FI’99 (designation follows multiple honorifics separated by commas with comma). The member’s name and designation is acknowledged in the main text when first noted. Designations are not repeated in subsequent use, in photo captions, or in sidebars.
