We are pleased to announce the launch of a new website dedicated to
the Conservation of Cultural Heritage:


The website was created for the publication of a new magazine,
"e_conservation, the online magazine" which is entirely dedicated to
all the professionals involved in the conservation-restoration of
cultural heritage. The publication is committed to serve the needs
of the conservator, encouraging the exchange of ideas, experience
and knowledge dissemination among professionals, providing the
latest relevant information in the field.

The first issue of the magazine will be available on the website
from September / October 2007 in digital format and will be free to

Aims and Scope: Our aim is to promote development in conservation by
offering free access to information. We want to facilitate the
international awareness of local interesting projects from all over
the world which otherwise could remain limited to a closed circuit.
We intend to publish quality papers in conservation-restoration and
related fields, academic and non-academic articles, reviews, case
studies, interviews, news and events among others. We seek to
maintain standards of high quality of information and presentation.
Scientific articles will be peer-reviewed by an international
scientific committee composed of conservators and scientists.
Therefore e_conservation magazine may share some characteristics
with a scientific journal, but its objectives should not be

Open Access: Our philosophy is to provide open access to the
knowledge and documentation in the field of conservation. Therefore
the magazine will be available for free, downloadable in our
website. In this way we hope to overcome the geographic and
economical limitations of a paper-based publication.

The website: Besides the magazine, the website offers many features
that the conservation community will be interested in: a calendar of
events with over one hundred conservation-related events worldwide,
an online database with current posts of available jobs and
internships, a list of courses for professionals and many others.
The website brings as well the most recent news in conservation,
being permanently updated by our team.

Call for papers: E_conservation magazine is now open to the
submission of papers on a large range of topics, including but not
limited to: conservation and restoration treatment of works of art,
conservation science and theory, preventive conservation, cultural
management, documentation and ethics.

All interested authors are invited to check the areas of publication
on our website for further details. Finally, all interested
individuals or institutions are welcome to collaborate within this

    **** Moderator's comments: I have to mention that despite the
    domain name of this site, it has no connection with Conservation
    OnLine (CoOL).  The similarity of names is not intentional; Rui
    and I just failed to coordinate concerning the names.  There
    will of course be links to this valuable resource from various
    areas in CoOL as soon as time permits.
