• To introduce newer perspectives in the field of Archaeological researches.
• To evolve new techniques and methodologies in the field of Archaeology.
The prime purpose of IJA is to invite all enthusiasts of Archaeology, such as research scholars, academicians and other achievers and to provide assistance to them for metamorphosing their data into concrete and usable form easily available to the academic world.
• If you have some relevant information revealing the past, please come forward, write an article and let others know about it.
• If you are a collector of antiquities and possess one which is likely to be forgotten after you, write about it and we will showcase the information provided by you. • If you know a monument which is at the verge of destruction, please document it and give it to our journal for publication.
We have enough space for photographs, so please send as many photographs as necessary for complete description of the situation. We want to give you a journal which has a truly all-India character where the papers related to the Archaeology of whole India are published at one place and get proportionate space and attentions of Scholars.
The task of bringing the heritage of our nation is great. A few organizations and armchair archaeologists cannot accomplish the work of discovering our past buried deep into the ground. We will have to take the help of common man who is living on the ancient sites and encourage him to write about the various antiquities he sees every day.
