Authenticity Studies. International Journal of Archaeology and Art is an international and independent journal based on a peer review system and dedicated to studying the methods of attribution and authentication of archaeological and art-historical artefacts.
Founded by Monica Salvadori (Editor in Chief), Federica Toniolo, Andrea Tomezzoli, Marta Nezzo, Monica Baggio and Luca Zamparo, Authenticity Studies. International Journal of Archeology and Art is a journal of the Department of Cultural Heritage of the University of Padova and is published by Padova University Press.
Authenticity Studies accepts original and unpublished contributions in the form of essays, short news or reports focused on three main research lines:
1) Theory and method of art-historical and archaeological attribution;
2) Investigations on the phenomenon of falsification: history, philosophy, methods and society;
3) Provenance Studies.
The essays, thanks to a larger structure, must mainly investigate the theoretical and methodological aspects of the themes of authentication, attribution, falsification and studies on provenance. On the other hand, the short news presents practical, original and relevant cases of attributions or authentication, protection and conservation of Cultural Heritage. Finally, the reports want to be a place for continuous updating on publications, exhibitions, disputes and the most relevant cases of the year on authentication and attribution of archaeological and historical-artistic objects.
Submission deadline: 15 July 2022
