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 2016. 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.

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 special topics. 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.
If your research got funding under the EU’s Seventh Framework Programme for Research (FP7) you might be eligible to get the publication fee covered through the new FP7 Post-Grant Gold Pilot. For more information on this Pilot see its guidelines here: https://www.openaire.eu/goldoa/fp7-post-grant/pilot. The central funding request system is available here: http://goldoa-pilot.openaire.eu. Otherwise, many research funders and institutions now have open access funds available. Please ask your department, library or funder to check your eligibility (you may be surprised!).
