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.

Vacancies: Join the editorial team


The Journal of Conservation and Museum Studies is looking to expand its editorial team.

In particular we are looking for the below positions:

  • Managing editors (especially with a specialism in conservation)
  • Communications editor/journal advocate
  • Copyeditors

If you are interested in any of these positions, or feel that you have skills that may be able to help the journal in other areas then we would love to hear from you. Please note that each position is unpaid.

To apply for a position, please send the editorial team a CV and brief cover letter. Alternatively, if you would like to discuss the position then please feel free to get in touch.
