The Journal of Astronomical History and Heritage is a peer-reviewed academic journal. The journal is published three times per year. It is logged through the Astrophysics Data System. It publishes research papers, reviews, short communications, IAU reports, and book reviews on all aspects of astronomical history.[1] The editor-in-chief is Wayne Orchiston (National Astronomical Research Institute of Thailand).

It was established in 1998[1] by John Luis Perdrix, after the Australian Journal of Astronomy was discontinued. Until 2005, it was published by Astral Press, a publishing house founded and owned by Perdrix.[1][2][3] From 2005 to 2012 it was published by the Centre for Astronomy (James Cook University). Since 2013, the publishing institute is the National Astronomical Research Institute of Thailand.[4] All papers are now published electronically and all papers from 1998 to the present can be accessed through the journal's website.
