An international academic journal, Journal of the Philosophy of History, will be edited in the future at the Faculty of Humanities in the University of Oulu. Journal of the Philosophy of History was founded in 2007. Since the foundation, the University of Groningen in the Netherlands has functioned as its home institution and a well-known philosopher of history Frank R. Ankersmit has been its Editor-In-Chief. The journal is published by reputable academic Dutch publishing company Brill.
Journal of the Philosophy of History is the only journal in Europe, which focuses explicitly on philosophy of history. It can be seen as a European counterpart to journal History & Theory currently edited in the USA. The transition of Journal of the Philosophy of History to Oulu further strengthens the role of Centre for Philosophical Studies of History located in the Faculty of Humanities as an internal centre for philosophy of history and historiography. Associate Professor Jouni-Matti Kuukkanen from the University of Oulu will be new Editor-In-Chief from July 2017.
