"The Journal of Astronomical History and Heritage is published three times yearly, in March, July and November and is issued in paper format. The journal features review papers, research papers, short communications, IAU reports, and book reviews. Papers on all aspects of astronomical history are considered, including studies which place the evolution of astronomy in political, economic and cultural context. Papers on astronomical heritage may deal with historic telescopes and observatories, conservation projects (including the conversion of historic observatories into museums of astronomy), and historical or industrial archaeological investigations of astronomical sites or buildings. All papers are refereed prior to publication. "
