From a press release by Maney Publishing dated Jan. 24, 2011:
Speaking for the IIC, Director of Publications Joyce Townsend announced at IIC’s AGM, held on Wednesday 19th January 2011:“I am pleased to welcome our new publishing partner, Maney Publishing, chosen for their professionalism and responsiveness in supporting societies as represented by their editors, reviewers and authors. Maney will provide a range of online publishing processes which will make it easier for both members and non-member readers around the world to find and use research results and to access the latest thinking on conservation, in our current and past publications.”
Studies in Conservation, the IIC’s flagship quarterly journal will be published by Maney Publishing from the start of 2012, where for the first time it will publish online (via IngentaConnect) as well as in full colour in print. One of the pre-eminent scholarly journals in conservation since its launch in 1956, and the only one in print which is fully cited, Studies in Conservation has continued to provide researchers and cultural heritage practitioners with novel results and significant thinking. Together with the recently incorporated Reviews in Conservation, published annually in print only by IIC 2000–10, the journal covers advances in conservation practice, novel methods of treatment, preventative conservation, issues of collection care, conservation history and ethics, examination methods for works of art, new research in the analysis of materials or mechanisms of deterioration, and conservation issues in display and storage.
In coming years Maney will digitise and make available to both IIC members and institutional subscribers the entire published archive of Studies and Reviews, with improved online search facilities.
IIC also publishes a long running and successful series of biennial conference proceedings that shall in future be integrated within the Journal to facilitate online access. News in Conservation, IIC’s full-colour newspaper reporting opinion, stories, features, interviews and other articles as well as IIC Council and regional group news, and conference listings will be distributed quarterly alongside Studies.
