The Journal of Heritage Management is a joint publication of the Centre for Heritage Management, Ahmedabad University and SAGE. The Centre has launched an innovative two year Master’s degree programme in Heritage Management which brings together discourses of Heritage and management, and aims to expand the current practices of heritage conservation to that of heritage management. It strives to bring about inclusion of heritage in all relevant policies and decisions of the country and make people aware about the imperative need to preserve the cultural assets of the nation.

The Centre aims to achieve its vision by offering quality academic and executive programmes to create motivated professionals; through research, documentation and publications; by organizing national and international seminars, conferences and symposia to expand and explore successful heritage experiences and practices from across the world; offer consultancy to heritage stakeholders and provide inputs for policy making.
To this end, the Journal of Heritage Management attempts to explore new territory by promoting interdisciplinary research into the relevance and meaning of Heritage Management and addresses the challenge of applying traditional management theories and techniques to the field of heritage preservation. It is global in its outlook while being rooted to the issues posed by the common cultural heritage of India/South Asia and Southeast Asia.
The Editorial Board and the Advisory Board of the Journal is constituted of experts, scholars and practitioners from all over the world and reflects the multicultural and multi disciplinary approach of the Journal to this emerging field. The Journal aims at giving equal importance to both the theory of heritage as well as to the practise of its conservation.
Aims & 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.,
a. theoretical discourses on heritage and its management,
b. policy and practice issues on heritage management, and
c. 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 academicians and professionals from these disciplines, who may have a focus on heritage and its management.
