JAIC welcomes the submission of technical studies, research papers, treatment case studies, and ethics and standards discussions relating to the broad field of conservation and preservation of historic and cultural works.
JAIC encourages the submission of short practical or technical notes, topical reviews, material studies, and longer submissions on subjects of interest to preservation and conservation professionals. Manuscripts are reviewed for their interest and overall suitability for the Journal, as well as for accuracy, clarity, and uniqueness.
The JAIC editorial board would like also to encourage articles that tackle broader issues in the conservation field (i.e., articles that discuss ethical considerations, history of conservation, history of teaching conservation, the changing nature of our jobs as conservators in museums and other institutions); collaborative articles between conservation and allied professionals; review-type articles that investigate a particular under-studied material or long-term results of particular treatments; and short technical notes or clinical practice submissions.
In addition, the journal welcomes submissions for book reviews. If you are interested in submitting a review of a recently published book related to the subject of conservation or preservation, please contact Cybele Tom, Book Review Editor.
If you have questions about whether your topic or manuscript is a good fit for the Journal, you may send a query to either Bonnie Naugle, JAIC managing editor.
