AHEAD: Advanced Studies in the Humanities and Social Sciences

Beginning in 2020, the publication series of the Helsinki Collegium for Advanced Studies was relaunched under the title AHEAD: Advanced Studies in the Humanities and Social Sciences. AHEAD is a fully open access online publication series, published in collaboration with the Helsinki University Press. Our goal is to provide a platform especially for multidisciplinary research, in accordance with the concept of an Institute for Advanced Study. AHEAD has a double-blind, two-stage referee process. The Deputy Director of the Helsinki Collegium acts as the editor of the series.

The website of the publication series is currently under construction. For more information on the series, contact the Series Editor Hanne Appelqvist.


During the years 2006-2017, HCAS published a scholarly open-access journal COLLeGIUM. The issues of the journal can be found here:
