The multi-faced and diverse activities of the Archives Department include the publishing of historical materials. These materials get destroyed in the course of time. So, it is important to publish them for posterity.
There are many publications that are of use to not only researchers on Kerala’s history and society but to the common man as well. Currently, Dr. S. Raymon as Chairman, department head as convener and four members constitute an editorial committee on the basis of which instructions are given to the publications division from time to time.
