The SCIENTIFIC CULTURE is a peer-reviewed, open access international scientific journal, an open information vehicle of academic community with a global coverage and issues touching local and regional interest; it is intended as a starting point for presenting research devoted in the broad field of temporal Cultural Issues.
Culture here implies the arts and other manifestations of human intellectual achievement regarded collectively. It includes the integrated pattern of human cumulative deposit of knowledge, experience, beliefs, values, attitudes, meanings, hierarchies, religion, notions of time, roles, spatial relations, concepts of the universe, and material objects and possessions acquired by a group of people in the course of generations through individual and group striving. The acquaintance with fine arts, humanities, and the broad aspects of science applied in the documentation of material and intangible assets.
Science refers to the systematic study of the nature and behaviour of the material and physical universe, based on observation, experiment, and measurement, and the formulation of laws to describe these facts in general terms, as well as, any body of knowledge organized in a systematic manner.
Thus, the duality of Scientific Culture is multidimensional and interdisciplinary, yet multi-scientific, wherein this is defined on a multiple ways, provided that any roots of culture and arts is presented in a systematic, critical, integrated piece of work study.
The objective is to serve the academic community with the highest quality and speed and non-profit one. The journal provides a broader coverage of studying ancient cultures with natural sciences focused on specific topics of global interest. It is published online three (3) times a year (January, May and September) in PDF electronic format.
It contains research and theoretical articles on cultural issues coupled with science or well documented scientific arguments, with intangible heritage interest, and the culture as a whole, including but not limited to landscapes & environment as cultural dimension, aesthetics, traditional heritage issues, conservation of antiquities, architectural cultural heritage, critical approaches in history of science, reviews of cultural issues with scientific relation, modern sociocultural aspects on a quantified nature, conservation science, archaeology, history (see below scientific disciplines). Official language is English.
The SCIENTIFIC CULTURE (SC) stands also upon the interdisciplinary aspects of Culture and Cultural Heritage -tangible and intangible- which comprises the cultural legacy inherited from previous generations, often preserved and emerged in modern societies, a legacy which we often want to identify and preserve because it reinforces our cultural identity or sense of who we are as a people. Communities and nations are interested in celebrating and preserving their heritage, and governments have enacted laws to protect cultural resources. In today’s spirit of globalization the identification and documentation of past local or regional high development in material, technology and ideas stand alone as anticipated peaks of acme in human evolution that distinguish and recognize the difference between the similar.
Cultural Heritage law is absolutely vital to States, intergovernmental organizations and non-State actors. The most important international organization that deals with Cultural Heritage is the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). UNESCO has been charged with assisting States to develop legal instruments to better protect Cultural Heritage and to also help in updating and reforming cultural policies. SC enters the current scientific media having a global perspective, promoting key issues in the reconstruction of the past, identification of current reminiscent issues and decoding knowledge from materials but also restoring the ideas behind those that shaped the cultural evolution. Prominent tools are the use of science and technology, applied and innovative instrumentation, the documentation and dissemination of cultural assets.
