From 2017, the journal Contributions to the History of Concepts (published by Berghahn journals) is co-edited from Helsinki and affiliated to the Helsinki Centre for Intellectual History. The journal was created by the History of Concepts Group that was established in 1998.

The journal serves as a platform for theoretical and methodological articles as well as empirical studies on the history of concepts and their social, political, and cultural contexts. It aims to promote the dialogue between the history of concepts and other disciplines, such as intellectual history, history of knowledge and science, linguistics, translation studies, history of political thought and discourse analysis.
