APT Bulletin

Bulletin Covers

APT Bulletin articles showcase cutting-edge preservation techniques, as well as innovative applications of established restoration technologies. All those concerned with historic structures - architects, conservators, engineers, contractors, craftspersons, educators, developers, property owners, historians, apprentices, and students - will learn about how to treat historic buildings and landscapes more intelligently, thus affording properties longer, more viable lives. No other journal has published so long and so well in this field.

Articles in the APT Bulletin include case studies demonstrating best practices and exemplary craftsmanship, international debates on preservation philosophy, and histories of building materials, technologies, and systems. Special theme issues of the APT Bulletin address emerging issues and trends; recent special issues have dealt with preservation engineering and the integration of environmental sustainability and historic preservation. Many Bulletin articles are developed from papers presented at the annual APT conference or other APT-sponsored events and symposia. The Bulletin also publishes reviews of new preservation-related books. First issued in 1969, the Bulletin is peer-reviewed and produced three times per year.

If you are interested in submitting a manuscript for potential publication in the APT Bulletin or wish to serve as a peer reviewer, the APT author guidelines, guest editor guidelines, peer review invitation, peer review guidelines, guidelines on what constitutes previously published content, and guidelines for memorial tributes are available online.
