About the Journal

Conservar Património (translated title: Heritage Conservation) is a journal that intends to create a space for the diffusion of conservator-restorers’ studies and activities. At a time when Conservation-Restoration develops further through collaboration with other areas of knowledge, such as History of Art, Archaeology, Museum Studies, Chemistry, Physics, Biology and other related disciplines from the fields of the natural and social sciences, the journal also receives contributions from any other provenance as long as directed towards the multiple dimensions of the works that integrate our Cultural Heritage. Theoretical issues on the conservation activity may also be submitted.

Conservar Património is a scientific journal published since 2005, first two and now three times a year. Submitted papers follow a single blind peer review unless reviewers choose to identify themselves (optional open peer review). The journal is published by ARP – Associação Profissional de Conservadores-Restauradores de Portugal, full member of ECCO – European Confederation of Conservator-Restorers’ Organisations and is open to all, independently of their relationship to the organization.

The journal has adopted a digital open-access format from issue 17 (2013) and the papers will be available on the Internet as soon as they are accepted (articles in press), before their insertion in the finalized issue.

The journal and papers are published under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivatives 4.0 International License which may be consulted in http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0/deed.en.

Conservar Património is part of Diamond Open Access Journals, which are free for readers and authors.
