Preservation Education and Research

Call for Papers for the 7th Volume of Preservation Education & Research Deadline for submission: February 15, 2014

The editors of Preservation Education & Research (PER) invite article manuscripts and Forum essays for the seventh (2014) volume of the journal.

PER disseminates peer-reviewed scholarship relevant to historic environment education from fields such as historic preservation, heritage conservation, heritage studies, building and landscape conservation, urban conservation, and cultural patrimony.

The National Council for Preservation Education (NCPE) launched PER in 2007 as part of its mission to exchange and disseminate information and ideas concerning historic environment education, current developments and innovations in conservation, and the improvement of historic environment education programs and endeavors in the United States and abroad.

Examples of previously published articles include:
• “Landscape Preservation Education in the United States”
• “Industrial Archaeology and Brazilian Industrial Heritage”
• “Current Trends in Historic Preservation Education at the Primary and Secondary School Levels”
• “Meiji Restorations: Defining Preservation, Education, and Architecture for Modern Japan”
• “‘So, Can You Revit?’ Historic Preservation Design Education and Digital Media”
• “The Status of Professional Career Openings in Historic Preservation in the United States”
• “The Value of a Preservation Field School Learning Experience”
• “Reflections on Eight Semesters of Employing Service Learning in an Undergraduate Historic Preservation Course”
• “Preservation Engineering: Framing a New Curriculum”
• “Domesticating the ‘National Optic’ after the Third Reich: Preservation and Morale Building in Postwar West Germany”
• “Learning Among Friends: Using Heritage-Based Educational Practices to Improve Preservation Law Pedagogy”

We also encourage readers with an interest and expertise in the topics covered in previous PER volumes to consider writing a PER Forum essay. The PER Forum contains short essays (800-1000 words) that respond to or critique reports or articles in previous volumes of the journal and encourage a constructive and scholarly dialogue. The deadline for PER Forum contributions is May 1, 2014.

All manuscripts and Forum essays should be submitted by email as an MS Word or PDF attachment to the co-editors of PER:
Jeremy Wells ([email protected]) and Rebecca Sheppard ([email protected]). Refer to the journal’s publication guidelines at for more information. All manuscripts are peer reviewed in a double-blind process while Forum essays may be subject to peer review on a case-by-case basis.

Manuscripts are accepted on a rolling basis throughout the year, but submission by February 15, 2014 will help assure that accepted manuscripts are published in the next annual volume of PER.

PER is currently indexed in the Avery Index to Architectural Periodicals and the EBSCO database; the full-text of articles is available from EBSCO and the NCPE web site ( For more information about NCPE and PER, visit
