About the journal
The Santander Art and Culture Law Review is a bi-annual journal. Its primary objective is to offer both Polish and foreign authors the opportunity to present their research, and offer readers the opportunity to read papers by both groups of authors. Thus the Editorial Board has decided that each odd-numbered issue of the journal is published in Polish, and each even-numbered issue in English. In order to provide cross-access, the papers published in the Polish language issues will include a summary and the key words written in English.
The Editorial Board will ensure that the journal is published in accordance with the guidelines set forth by the Minister of Science and Higher Education in the Act of 2 June 2015 on the criteria and the mode of evaluation of academic journals, the requirements of which are aimed at achieving the highest possible quality of scientific publications. The list of reviewers will be published once a year on the journal’s website. The criteria of qualification and disqualification of texts for publication, as well as the review questionnaire, are available on the journal’s website.
Santander and culture
The project Creating and managing an interdisciplinary legal journal dealing with culture- related issues is implemented within individual grants offered by Santander Universidades. The Santander Art and Culture Law Review conforms with the pro-cultural policy of both the Santander Group as well as the Santander Universidades Programme. The journal, as well as its panel of experts on cultural property law, are committed to promote the international transfer of expertise and actively contribute to the promotion of culture in the academic sphere in line with the aims of Santander Group.
The Santander Group is an active player in the promotion of art and culture, both as an organiser of the foundation as well as a participant in the art market, where it has created a unique art collection. Nowadays, art is also present in bank products, which is the consequence of the increased engagement of art banking investors. Along with the rapid development of technology (digitalization, online museums, internet auctions of works of art, and mobility of artistic objects), as well as the increased number of threats posed to the development of culture, it is essential to perceive culture in a global, or at the very least in a European, context.
