Pakistan Heritage is a research journal of the Department of Archaeology, School of Cultural Heritage and Creative Technologies, Hazara University, Mansehra, Pakistan and is jointly edited by professionals from Hazara University and School of Archaeology and Ancient History, University of Leicester, United Kingdom.
This recently established journal focuses on current issues and research in the fields of archaeology, cultural heritage management, museum and conservation studies in Pakistan and South Asia. It is published annually, and to date four volumes have been produced. As part of our long–‐term policy, we are in the process of publishing the journal online (and free of cost) alongside the print version. Pakistan Heritage boasts one of the most distinguished editorial boards for journals published in this region.
As editors and board members, we are committed to a double blind peer-review process, with a transparent reviewing and selection policy. We are aiming for highest publication standards and ethics, and have zero tolerance to plagiarism (including self–‐plagiarism). We would expose all submitted papers to anti- and reviewers. We work from our reviewers comments (which are communicated to the author(s) for inclusions) and decisions (e.g. out-right rejection). Needless to mention that all our reviewers are from outside Pakistan.
We are now in the process of accepting papers for volume 5 of Pakistan Heritage and are aiming to publish this volume by December 2014. We are looking for 8-12 high quality research papers of 6000 – 8000 words (in MS Word) and would generally accommodate 6 -8 illustrations/maps/photos per paper. We will also accept short fieldwork reports of 3000 words with up to 5 high quality illustrations.
We shall be very much thankful to you if you could kindly submit a paper to our upcoming volume 5.
We would also appreciate if you could widely circulate this in your respective peer groups and on relevant public forums. Sincerely, Editors [Ruth Young (University of Leicester) and Muhammad Zahir (Hazara University)] and Associate Editor [Shakirullah (Hazara University)]
