Present Pasts emerged from the UCL Institute of Archaeology Heritage Studies Section and is currently being re-launched in collaboration with the Department of Anthropology of the University of South Florida. Present Pasts contains global and cross-cultural perspectives in the fields of Cultural Heritage Studies, Public Archaeology and Museum Studies. The journal encourages debate on contemporary issues in heritage and heritage management at the intersection of war, conflict, environmental stress, and tourism, and seeks to give voice to a wide range of stakeholders in the Heritage sector.

Present Pasts publishes one issue per year. The journal is published online as a continuous volume and issue throughout the year. Articles are made available as soon as they are ready. The journal operates a double blind peer review process.
Article Processing Charges (APCs) have been kept to a minimum to ensure that the journal can operate while remaining low cost and fully open access. At £300 the APC is just 10-20% of some competitors. Many research funders and institutions now have open access funds available. Please ask your department, library or funder to check your eligibility. For more information on funding, feel free to get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org.
