The Journal of European Landscapes (JEL) stimulates and promotes both empirical research and reflexive thinking on the history and heritage of the landscapes of Europe.
As a result of growing economic interdependence and political integration, Europe becomes ever more important as a spatial framework for research. This is particularly true for landscape research. The development of landscapes is highly dependent on the politics of the European Union. Policies on landscape and heritage are increasingly influenced by international cooperation. As a result, there is a growing awareness of the European dimensions of landscape and heritage.
For disciplines with a geographical dimension, such as archaeology, landscape and heritage, this results in comparative research in regions in Europe and, sometimes, in research on Europe as a whole. Although landscape is a theme that is increasingly studied on a European level (in fact, landscape is often described as a typical European theme), there is no other journal that focuses on European landscapes.
