Journal of Conservation and Museum Studies – Call For Papers

Call for Papers

The Journal of Conservation and Museum Studies is accepting submissions for publication for 2014 and early 2015. We primarily publish research papers but also welcome review papers, and short reports. Conference, exhibition and book reviews are also available for submission.

The Journal of Conservation and Museum Studies is a fully peer-reviewed, open access journal. It has an overall focus on the care and exhibition of collections. Topics that are encouraged for submission are (but not exclusively):
• collection and exhibition management
• critical approaches to conservation
• museum collections and exhibitions
• learning, communication, interpretation and evaluation of museums and exhibitions
• materials science and technical studies of objects, collections and conservation materials
• participatory processes
• professional and ethical issues
• remedial or preventive conservation

Submit Now: We accept online submissions via our journal website. See Author Guidelines for further information. Alternatively, please contact the Editor-in-Chief for more information.

JCMS publishes as soon as articles are ready, meaning there is no delay in research being released. Submissions can be sent throughout the year, however editorial deadlines are:
• March 31st
