IMISCOE publishes the peer refereed journal Comparative Migration Studies (CMS) on Open Access, and a dedicated book series that includes Research Monographs and Edited Volumes, targeting a more specialized audience, as well as a new short Migration Reader Series aimed at students and young researchers or practitioners who need a concise and simple introduction into a specific topic.

The IMISCOE Springer book series is largely Open Access (in our own digital library and in OAPEN) with entire books and separate chapters available for download for free, thanks to a privileged agreement between IMISCOE and Springer publishers.

A recent study by Springer has demonstrated that Open Access books are downloaded 7 times more than those which are not OA and receive 50% more citations. In addition OA seeks to distribute costs between authors/editors and customers seeking to offer a more equitable solution, open to the largest possible number of readers/users.
