Journal summary: Archeostorie Journal of Public Archaeology (AJPA) is the open access peer-reviewed scientific journal that provides Italy with an arena to discuss issues such as the management and communication of heritage and the role of archaeology into contemporary society. It produces insightful analyses on significant initiatives aimed at involving the public in archaeological and heritage issues, and bridging the gap between our past and modernity. Furthermore, AJPA wants to encourage scientific debate on Public Archaeology as a discipline, and promote and coordinate related activities. It also aims to promote debate on the future of the profession, and specifically on whether public engagement in archaeological research can contribute to grant archaeologists a different, and hopefully more relevant, role in contemporary society.
AJPA is published once a year, in Spring. Each issue has a Topic of the year session with papers that analyze a specific subject from several points of view, and a Satura Lanx session with papers beyond the main theme.
