New Journal of Interest: Comparative Migration Journal

This journal could be a good outlet for those of us who do comparative work.

Comparative Migration Studies

CMS now welcomes individual articles and special issue proposals
  • From various disciplines
  • With an explicit comparative orientation
  • To be subjected to double-blind peer review
  • For open access publishing
  • To make sure that your research is widely accessible
  • And to enable publishing on a relatively short term
Comparative Migration Studies (CMS) is an international, peer-reviewed journal for comparative research in the field of migration, integration and ethnic studies. CMS distinguishes itself on the following points:
  • An explicit comparative orientation. We believe that a focus on comparative research can promote the theoretical development of migration studies. This can involve various types of comparative studies (between countries, groups, levels, historical periods).
  • A wide disciplinary angle. CMS aims to develop a wider disciplinary angle than most existing journals: besides sociology, political science and anthropology, the journal also aims at economics and  law.
  • An open access journal. We believe open access nowadays is the best way to get the widest possible exposure for the work published in our journal. Publishing your articles with CMS means that other scholar will have easy access to your work and will be more likely to read it and refer to it.
The field of comparative migration studies has evolved rapidly in recent decades, with contributions from a variety of disciplines such as sociology, anthropology, political sciences, law and economics. In methodological terms, migration studies has also become an increasingly diverse field. Comparative Migration Studies aims to reflect these developments and welcomes research based on qualitative, quantitative and mixed methods.

Contributions are invited in particular on the following topics: migration, integration, assimilation, migration policies, incorporation policies, governance of migration and integration, ethnic/cultural/religious diversity, migrant rights, gender & migration, migration & citizenship, migration & national identity, migration & security, civic integration, nationalism and migration, ethnic entrepreneurship.
