About The Heritage Journal, National Heritage Board, Singapore







The Heritage Journal (ISSN: 0219-8584) publishes research articles on the history, culture and the art practices of Asia, with an emphasis on material culture, cultural resource management and museum practice. It is a publication of Singapore's National Heritage Board.

The National Heritage Board is responsible for preserving and documenting Singapore’s cultural, artistic, historical, and social heritage. The vision of the board is 'To Make Heritage An Enriching Part Of Everyone’s Life'. It does this with a number of institutions under its auspices – the National Archives, the National Museum of Singapore, the Singapore Art Museum, the Asian Civilisations Museum, and a Philatelic Museum. These institutions run ambitious schedules of educational outreach programs, lectures, academic and cultural programs, and publications. The museums are regional in scope, presenting broad yet integrated perspectives of pan-Asian cultures and civilisations. The Board seeks to promote a better appreciation of the rich cultures that makeup Singapore’s multi-ethnic society.

The Heritage Journal is regional in coverage and the main scholarly publication of the National Heritage Board. The Asia-Studies compendium includes the full-text of all articles from The Heritage Journal.
