In the field of conservation-restoration of works of art and care of cultural heritage, the publication of peer-reviewed and scientific papers can be an influencing factor in deciding which candidate to select for internships, exchanges, work placements, for positions in the private sector as well as at prestigious public institutions like scientific research centres, museums, galleries, universities or for disposing research grants.
ICAR – International Journal of Young Conservators and Restorers of Works of Art is an open-access, international academic journal dedicated to students and recent graduates of conservation and restoration of works of art and related fields. Our mission is to promote the scientific accomplishments of emerging conservator-restorers and to provide guidance in the process of publishing in a professional academic journal.
If you are a student, doctoral researcher or a recent graduate we invite you to publish in ICAR. The range of topics of published papers includes various matters concerning conservation and restoration of works of art, antique objects and care of cultural heritage. Papers are carefully selected by the scientific committee and are peer-reviewed. We cooperate with a number of reviewers who are well-recognised in their field of expertise and whose professional feedback is used as a gauge to qualify material for publication. Professional proof-readers and native English speakers are also involved in the process.
From our website you can access the submission system as well as all the necessary information on how to submit your research including detailed guidelines and required documents.
Currently we are working on the 3rd and 4th issues of ICAR. You are welcome to freely download previous issues.
Our online submission system is open during our call for abstracts—the next call is planned for February-March 2020, so make sure to check our website and Facebook page!
We’ll be delighted to see your submissions. Good luck!
