Comparative Migration Studies (CMS) is an international, peer-reviewed open access journal that provides a platform for articles that focus on comparative research in migration, integration, and ethnic studies. It presents readers with an extensive collection of comparative analysis, including studies between countries, groups, levels, and historical periods. CMS publishes research based on qualitative, quantitative, and mixed methods and helps promote the theoretical development of migration studies. Contributions cover a wide disciplinary angle, from sociology to political science, anthropology to economics and law. Topics include: assimilation, migration policies, incorporation policies, governance of migration and integration, ethnic/cultural/religious diversity, migrant rights, gender and migration, migration and citizenship, migration and national identity, migration and security, civic integration, nationalism and migration, and ethnic entrepreneurship.
All manuscripts submitted to IMISCOE for consideration are peer-refereed by at least two independent reviewers.
You are invited to submit your Book Proposal (using this form: IMISCOE book proposal form.) to the IMISCOE Editorial Committee. Your proposal will be evaluated by three EC members and you will get a response within 8 weeks from submission at the latest. At this stage the EC also assesses whether the proposed book fits within the series and if submission of the full manuscript for a formal review would thus be relevant.>>
Submissions to the journal can only be made through Editorial Manager. All articles published by Comparative Migration Studies are made freely and permanently accessible online immediately upon publication, without subscription charges or registration barriers. Further information about open access can be found on the Springer website.
