The open access-journal Fire welcomes submissions for a Topical Collection on the topic of fire risk management for cultural heritage and their investigation in the areas of conservation and restoration, conservation science, risk management and mitigation, and other related disciplines.
The focus of this Topical Collection is on the multiple dimensions involving the issue of fire risk in both architectural and movable heritage assets, namely, regarding innovative solutions for fire protection, repair and restoration principles, risk perception, and emergency planning. Outcomes of this collection are expected to contribute to strengthen the development of prevention, preparedness, and response actions to reduce the impact of fire events on cultural heritage.
Hence, the topics of potential manuscripts may include (but are not limited to):
- Optimized solutions for the fire protection of architectural or movable heritage assets;
- Fire risk from the user’s perspective (human behavior) and related systems;
- Risk reduction policies and strategies, including education and training programs;
- Disaster recovery: learning from the past and multi-disciplinary challenges;
- Case studies: examples, challenges, and good practices.
