As of June 2019, the most recently published SiC papers include technical studies of decorative objects from the East and the West, the making of an ultrasonic nebulizer for studio use, the conservation of 19th-century plaster casts, the use of photogrammetry in a historic building, and the ageing of bamboo paper. The periods covered range from the 5th century to the mid-20th century. This wide range of topics is typical of the journal, which carries papers ranging from analytical studies to case history, and includes technical studies, technical notes, texts on decision-making in conservation and articles on modern materials such as plastics.
Four issues of volume 64 for 2019 have now appeared in print, with four more issues due by the end of the year. Each printed issue includes 5-6 papers previously published online. The first supplement in this volume, the post-prints of the European Lacquer in Context conference held in Brussels, Belgium in 2018, was published online-only in May.
