IMISCOE publishes the peer refereed journal Journal CMS on Open Access, and a dedicated book series that includes Research Monographs and Edited Volumes, targeting a more specialized audience; a Short Migration Reader series, aimed at students and young researchers or practitioners who need a concise and simple introduction into a specific topic; and a Regional Reader series providing access to expert knowledge from different world regions. For more information on how to submit a book proposal please visit this page. For information on our annual competitive call for book proposals check here.
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 2017 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.
