Docomomo Journal is the open-access, international, peer-reviewed journal of Docomomo International that, since 1990, has provided a twice-yearly summary of recent and original research on the documentation and conservation of Modern Movement buildings, sites and neighbourhoods.

Since its creation in 1988, Docomomo International has experienced rapid growth, establishing itself as a major player in the broader field of architectural culture. By virtue of its inclusive, pluralist and interdisciplinary nature, Docomomo Journal acts as an exchange platform that brings together architects, town-planners, landscape architects, engineers, historians and sociologists. Broad in scope, Docomomo Journal welcomes theoretical, historical, technical and critical contributions that support its comprehensive coverage of the Modern Movement, encompassing landscape, urbanism, architecture, engineering, technology, design, education and theory.

In its exploration of the Modern Movement Docomomo Journal takes a broad view, in chronological and geographical terms, and encourages the participation of authors from around the world (with contributions from more than 90 countries and 5 continents, to date) on subjects ranging from adaptive (re)use, new findings on built work, and contemporary methods of conservation technology, to new ideas for a sustainable built environment in the future.

Providing a link between theory and practice, Docomomo Journal is committed to creating a body of critical knowledge with a range and depth of thought that will enrich the architectural discipline and its practice.

Docomomo International aims to publish 2 special issues of Docomomo Journal per year. As of July 2024, there is also a yearly open issue available that welcomes contributions that do not fit within the thems of the special issues. Both the contributions to the special issues and the contributions to the open issue undergo the same peer reviewing process.
