Paper long abstract:

The International Journal of Intangible Heritage (IJIH) is a refereed academic and professional English language journal dedicated to the promotion of the understanding of all aspects of intangible heritage, and the communication of research and examples of good professional practice. It was first published in 2006 in response to the rapidly growing interest in intangible heritage, particularly following the widespread ratification by States in all parts of the world of UNESCO's 2003 International Convention for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage.

The Journal is published as an annual volume, typically of between 120 and 160 pages with full colour illustrations, in both print (2000 copies) and free PDF download formats. Proposals for contributions to future volumes of the Journal are actively sought from professionals and specialists across the world. Main papers are normally between 4,000 and 8,000 words in length with short papers, reports and reviews of up to 3,000 words. Papers must be submitted in English and authors are responsible for their translation. Papers can be submitted at any time, though only those received by or before 15th December each year can be refereed in time for the annual early February meeting of the full Editorial Board and, if accepted, included in the next annual volume which will be published in May of the same year. Submission of your article is only available via the official website:
