Short summary
The International Polar Year 2007-2008 was a synchronized effort of over 60 nations to simultaneously collect data from polar regions. However, large parts of IPY knowledge have only been reported in publications. A concerted effort of PANGAEA (www.pangaea.de) and the International Council for Scientific and Technical Information resulted in the extraction of 1270 data sets from 450 IPY publications. They are now available to the public by open access (http://dx.doi.org/10.1594/PANGAEA.150150).
