Studies in Conservation

The Journal of the Institute of Conservation is IIC’s peer-reviewed publication. With international contributions on all aspects of conservation, the Journal is an invaluable resource for the heritage sector.

Studies is published in eight issues (four volumes) by Taylor & Francis.

IIC Members receive free printed copies of Studies in Conservation and have advanced online access to a huge archive of content, practice and research.

Writing for Studies in Conservation

We invite contributions from all those involved in the conservation of cultural heritage and related activities. Areas of interest include: advances in conservation practice, novel methods of treatment, conservation issues in display and storage, preventive conservation, issues of collection care, conservation history and ethics, and the history of materials and technological processes, examination methods for works of art, new research in the analysis of artistic materials and mechanisms of deterioration.

Scientific content is not necessary, and the editors encourage the submission of treatment and practical articles, review papers, position papers on best practice and the philosophy and ethics of collecting and preservation, to help maintain the traditional balance of the journal.

If you would like to write for Studies in Conservation, first consult the Instructions for Authors and then submit your full article using our online system.
