Focus and scope. Acta Museologica Lithuanica is a periodical interdisciplinary peer-reviewed scholarly journal founded in 2013. It is the first scientific journal in Lithuania dedicated to museology. Articles published in this journal have not been published anywhere else and cover themes such as: history of museums, collecting and musealization; museum collecting, storage, research, record keeping, preservation, conservation and restoration; theoretical museology and metamuseology; museum expositions and exhibition, communication of immovable cultural heritage, virtual museums and the use of digital technologies in museums; museum education and communication; museum management and museum policy. Journal also publishes museological scientific research and sources, scientific reviews of new books, museum expositions and exhibition.
The publisher of the journal is the Museology Department of the Faculty of Communication of Vilnius University. The journal is issued in an electronic format (PDF or 3D PDF). The use of 3D PDF technology is revolutionising the way in which the journal is published. Due to 3D PDF format, articles can feature not only static pictures but also visual and sound effects, virtual reality pictures, 3D scanning images and other multimedia objects. In terms of innovative technologies, the scholarly journal Acta Museologica Lithuanica is the only one of this kind in Europe. Some issues of the journal (ones that do not contain multimedia components) can be issued in a printed form as well.
