And an online conservation journal

I came across the online journal Conservation Science in Cultural Heritage.
It is peer reviewed, with one issue peryear.  Articles are available as downloadable pdf files.

It is edited by the Dipartimento di Storie e Metodi per la Conservazione dei Beni Cultuali, Università di Bologna; Centro Interdipartimentale di Ricerca in Ingegneria dell'Automazione e dei Sistemi, Università di Palermo; EUREKA project, European Agency Cultural Heritage Research Area CNR.  The scientific editor is Salvatore Lorusso.

Topics covered include:
  • use of appropriate methodologies and analytical techniques for the characterization of historical masterpieces that are part of the cultural heritage and for the evaluation of the preservation state
  • assessment of atmospheric pollution and correlated decay of monuments and historical-artistic setting
  • computer science and cultural heritage: methods for data elaboration and cataloguing
