Comparative Migration Studies (CMS) is an international, peer-reviewed journal for comparative research in the field of migration, integration and ethnic studies. CMS is published by Springer. The association between IMISCOE and Comparative Migration Studies means that the journal can publish Open Access without asking for Author-Pays Fees. 

CMS also provides an outlet for coherent special issues. Every proposal will be reviewed by the Editorial Board. If approved, all individual articles from the special issue will be subjected to double-blind peer review independently. The next deadline for submitting proposals is May 30, 2016.
