Aim and Scope

The primary aim of Journal of Heritage Management is to bring together theoretical discourses and practical implications of ‘heritage management’ as a field of research and practice. It will therefore have three complimentary segments to ensure a balanced development of the domain of heritage management, i.e.,

  1. theoretical discourses on heritage and its management,
  2. policy and practice issues on heritage management, and
  3. regular reviews of related academic and professional works in the field book reviews, project reviews, issue-based discussion/opinion articles, etc.

Thus, the Journal will be a forum for sharing theoretical discourses, analyzing policies and practices, and promoting discussions on key issues on heritage management.

The Journal is multidisciplinary in nature and includes disciplines such as Art History, Architecture, Archaeology, Anthropology, Ecology, Biodiversity, Cultural Geography, History, Cultural Studies, etc. The journal is primarily, but by no means exclusively, aimed at aacademicians and professionals from these disciplines, who may have a focus on heritage and its management.
