The European Legacy: Toward New Paradigms (formerly History of European Ideas) is an international, multidisciplinary, peer-reviewed journal devoted to the study of European ideas. Founded in 1979 by Sascha Talmor and Ezra Talmor (Israel), the journal was first published by Pergamon Press (UK). In 1995 it was transferred to MIT Press (USA) and was renamed The European Legacy, although the Board of Advisory Editors remained unchanged. From 2000 to the present The European Legacy has been published by Routledge, Taylor & Francis Group (UK) http://www.tandf.co.uk/journals/carfax/10848770.html.

From 2008 the journal has been included in the Thomson Reuters & Humanities Citation Index.
For the past ten years the journal has appeared 7 times a year (120-150 pages per issue). 
Starting from 2015, the journal appears as 8 online issues, which are printed as four double-bound issues throughout the year. Online ISSN: 1470-1316; Print ISSN: 1084-8770
 
Aims and Scope
The European Legacy is devoted to the study of European intellectual and cultural history but is equally concerned with the emerging paradigms of thought in the making of the New Europe. The editors believe the journal’s multidisciplinary scope and appeal is immensely important with the ever-increasing level of specialization in all spheres of knowledge.  
The journal publishes articles, review essays and book reviews on a broad range of  disciplines—philosophy, language, art and literary studies, political science, the social and human sciences, and non-technical science, including their various sub-disciplines. Special issues devoted to particular themes are edited by expert guest editors.

The European Legacy was listed in “The 10 Best Magazines of 1996”: “Encouraging work in the best scholarly tradition of thinking across boundaries, this journal will find a welcome audience at virtually any academic institution” (Eric Bryant, Library Journal, 1997).
 
“I would not hesitate to recommend The European Legacy to colleagues in European studies, especially if the International Society for the Study of European Ideas continues to hold conferences and publish its papers in this format” (Robert Hudson, Times Higher Educational Supplement, 1998).

In 2010 The European Legacy was rated among the top 15% of academic journals around the world by the Australian Government’s Australian Research Council.
It was included in a category where publishing “would enhance the author’s standing, showing they have real engagement with the global research community and that they have something to say about problems of some significance.”
