Science, Conservation Science, Conservation Research, and Conservation: Where do the Conservator and Scientist Meet?
Judith H. Hofenk de Graaff
For a better understanding, the following terms are defined: Science, scientific theory, scientific research, scientific method, scientific examination, scientific investigation and conservation science. For the terms preservation, preventive conservation, examination, conservation and restoration the terminology of the ICOM-CC is used in this contribution. General terms for research, basic and applied research are brought into the context of the theme 'conservation science.' The collaboration between conservator and scientist is presented in two case studies for which the scientific method is used to identify the problem and the development of the project. Particular emphasis is laid on the need for a continuous dialogue between the conservator and the scientist.
