New Journal: e-Preservation Science

From: Jana Kolar <jana.kolar>
Date: Friday, August 13, 2004
We're delighted to announce a major new journal e-Preservation
Science <URL:>.  To be known as
e-PS, the journal will bring together cutting-edge research in all
aspects of preservation and conservation science.

Aims and scope: Our aim is to publish high quality papers in
materials research: review papers, original papers, short
communications, but also announcements and news. Topics should be of
interest in the field of preservation research and should include
studies in stability, environmental studies and condition assessment
of cultural heritage, and studies of materials and procedures used
for its conservation and preservation.

The journal aims at dissemination of information to researchers,
conservators, preservation officers, and other interested audiences.

Our mission: e-PS uses e-publishing technology--from on-line
submission to web distribution. Our aim is to publish papers on our
freely accessible web pages within 8 weeks from submission. In
addition, hard copies are available by subscription. Web technology
allows also unlimited publication of colour images, movies, sound
and other material otherwise not publishable.

We employ high-quality peer reviewing, and will strive to obtain the
Science Citation Index at earliest possible date.
