Journal of Architectural Conservation

Journal of Architectural Conservation (JAC) seeks your papers on conservation-related topics.

The Editorial Board would like to request in particular:

  • Discussions of conservation/preservation ethics
  • Technical conservation where cases studies have wider application
  • Review papers on topics not currently covered in the literature
  • Energy efficiency and sustainability of the built heritage
  • Issues facing the conservation of modern heritage
  • Developments in conservation/preservation law and policy

As the leading authority in its field, the international Journal of Architectural Conservation provides invaluable guidance on policy, practice and technical developments. Encouraging debate on a broad variety of conservation issues, this peer-reviewed journal with its high academic and professional standards fulfils its ambition to illuminate, question and inform.

The journal’s scope is wide-ranging and includes discussion on aesthetics and philosophies; historical influences; project evaluation and control; repair techniques; materials; reuse of buildings; legal issues; inspection, recording and monitoring; management and interpretation; and historic parks and gardens.

JAC also offers a valuable resource that includes information on building types; building materials and their conservation; recent case studies; developments in specific construction techniques; and research results from key investigations.

The JAC editorial board would like also to encourage articles that tackle broader issues in the conservation field, for example articles that discuss philosophical and ethical considerations, history of architectural conservation, history of teaching conservation; and collaborative articles between conservation and allied professionals.

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 Henry Russell, the Editor.
