The half-yearly journal “Protection of Cultural Heritage” has been issued since 2016 in electronic version and contains articles in English and Polish language. The origin of the journal is connected with the publishing activities of Polish National Committee of International Council on Monuments and Sites (ICOMOS), which – in 2015, to mark the occasion of the 50th anniversary of founding the ICOMOS – undertook to create the scientific journal concerning the preservation and protection of monuments (read more about the other ICOMOS publications). First two volumes were issued in 2016.
"Protection of Cultural Heritage" does not charge submission or publication fees for the manuscripts, publishing in the open access formula, on the licence Creative Commons Attribution – Share Alike (CC BY-SA 4.0 PL).
The journal is financed by the Polish Ministry of Sciences and Higher Education in the grant program: “The support for scientific journals” (2019-2020).
The manuscript accepted by the editorial office is reviewed by two independent reviewers not belonging to the author’s university, using the double-blind peer review process. The reviewers are the expert members of the Advisory Board of the journal, who are responsible for the high substantive level of the articles. The list of the reviewers is updated every year.
"Protection of Cultural Heritage" is obliged to proceed according to the Ethical principles described by the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE). All the submitted manuscripts are verified in the Crossref Similiarity Check (powered by iThenticate) to prevent the plagiarism and duplicate publications.
We invite scientific bodies, representatives of state and local governments, as well as practitioners in the broadly understood field of cultural heritage, monuments, conservation doctrine and conservation problems to present their scientific achievements and practical results of their work.
