Reviews in Conservation invite preliminary submissions for the 2008 issue.
IIC's peer-reviewed journal is devoted to the literature of conservation, with each article providing comprehensive coverage of the publications within a particular conservation discipline. Contributions are welcomed on a range of topics, including (but not limited to) conservation treatments, materials, scientific research, technical art history, analytical techniques, historiography of conservation, training and ethics.
The deadline for preliminary submissions is 1 September 2007. Once commissioned, the deadline for manuscripts for the 2008 issue is 1 February 2008. Unless special arrangements have been made with the editors, drafts should be written in English.
The draft should be as comprehensive as possible. However, as some authors will only wish to carry out extensive library research once the paper is commissioned, any areas yet to be completed should be clearly indicated in the text. As the paper is a literature review, the draft paper should include an extensive bibliography, an abstract and reasonably complete introductory and concluding sections.
