Information for authors

CeROArt is a scientific e-journal supported by the Ecole supérieure des Arts Saint-Luc of Liège, and the Centre interdisciplinaire de Conservation Restauration du Patrimoine (CICRP, Marseille). It has two proofreading committees (internal and external -see scientific committee) and accepts articles for publication relating to the Conservation, exposition, Restoration of Objects and works of Art. Each issue covers a full account of a main topic which is approached from several angles. Authors are free to suggest an article «off topic».


CeROArt publishes articles in French and/or English. The title, subtitles, abstract and key words must be in both languages.

Submitted articles consist of the following elements in this order:

  • Title of the article

  • First name, last name

  • Brief presentation of the author’s biography (max 500 signs – 100 words)

  • An abstract in French and one in English (max. 750 signs each -125 words)

  • Five key words maximum, simple (no expression) separated by a comma, no capitals (except for proper nouns).

  • Article itself

Article length is between 15,000 and 36,000 characters, with a minimum of 5 and a maximum of 12 pages of A4 (notes and punctuation included, but without illustrations). Articles should be sent as raw text (normal style), preferably in the font Times 12. Suitably styled titles are required (Title1, Title2, Title 3…). Arabic numbering is to be used for notes and they have to appear at the bottom of the page. Authors shall ensure the homogeneity of their presentations, which will facilitate electronic publishing and which permits shortening of publication deadlines. In order to do this, authors will as much as possible use the automatic styling of their software. Authors familiar with e-publishing can obtain the styling file used by CeROArt on request.


Illustrations or table, if any, should not be inserted in the text, but should be added in a separately attached file (see recommendations further below). Their position should be indicated within the article by insertion of their number (ill.1, 2, etc.) and their title and they should also have NECESSARILY a caption as well as photograph credits.

The maximum number of illustrations for an article is 12.

Maximum weight for each illustration is 3 Mega.

Illustrations, in JPG format, if possible pre-edited for the web, must be sent in a separate file and numbered as follows: «Fig.1», «Fig.2»…

Regarding the illustrations, the article itself shall consist only of the illustration number (Fig.1, Fig.2, …), the title, a legend (description) and the photographic credits (photo source).
