The Journal of Conservation and Museum Studies is fully peer reviewed and Open Access. It contains research on conservation science, artefact studies, restoration, museum studies, environment studies, collection management and curation. Published from the UCL Institute of Archaeology from 1996 to 2002, the journal was relaunched in 2011 in collaboration with the British Library, with a newly constituted international editorial board.
The Journal of Conservation and Museum Studies is accepting submissions for publication for 2017. We primarily publish research papers, but also welcome review papers, and short reports. Conference, exhibition and book reviews are also available for submission. We highly encourage post-graduate students to contribute conference, exhibition and book reviews.
The journal is fully indexed, peer-reviewed and fully open access, receiving 60,000 pages views so far in 2016 alone. It has an overall focus on the care and exhibition of collections. Topics that are encouraged for submission are (but not exclusively):
JCMS publishes as soon as articles are ready, meaning there is no delay in research being released. Submissions can be sent throughout the year.
We invite guest editors to curate a series of papers on specific topics or events. If you would like to discuss a special collection that you have in mind, or would like to publish a conference proceedings with us, then please do get in touch.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the peer reviewers who gave their time and expertise during 2016 to help ensure that JCMS continues to publish rigorously tested research. As always, we are extremely appreciative of the efforts put in to ensure that high academic quality is maintained.
