Navigating polar science is tricky, especially for researchers with disabilities. Issues persist that disqualify researchers with disabilities from pursuing their dreams. To address this, Accessibility in Polar Research (APR/@accesspolar) was founded during the pandemic by a small group of researchers with disabilities. Through appearances at conferences, designed workshops and made resources APR grew rapidly and garnered an international platform to carry out its initiatives. One such initiative is the ‘Accessibility 2023 Questionnaire’, designed to evaluate how the polar field restricts researchers with disabilities. Through collating this information APR is in the process of creating free and open resources for institutions, fieldwork organisers and employers to ensure inclusivity is practiced.
