Conservation Science in Cultural Heritage

Historical-Technical Journal

The historical-technical "Journal" was founded in 2001 in the University of Bologna, Italy. Published annually, over the years, the "Journal", formerly “Quaderni di Scienza della Conservazione” (Pitagora Editrice, Bologna), in 2007 with issue N.7, adopted an international format with the title “Conservation Science in Cultural Heritage” in English and available in electronic, as well as hard copy versions.
From issue N.11-2011, the "Journal" is published by Mimesis Edizioni (Milano-Udine).
The Advisory Board is composed of experts with different competences and cultural backgrounds. The "Journal" publishes interdisciplinary studies and experimental research related to the complex themes of protection and valorization of cultural and environmental heritage within an international context: the two key words being interdisciplinarity and internationalization.
In short, the objectives pursued are of a scientific, institutional and communicational nature so that the quality of the information reflects the truth of science and clarity of communication.
It is included in numerous international databases: EBSCO Publishing; DOAJ; ERIH PLUS; ESCI (Emerging Sources Citation Index – Web of Science, Clarivate Analytics); Scopus (Scimago Journal and Country Rank); ANVUR (Agenzia Nazionale di Valutazione del Sistema Universitario e della Ricerca – Classe A). The Journal also has important certification: SPARC Seal (Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resource Coalition) and a Creative Commons License.
