New multi-disciplinary refereed journal from Oxford University Press will publish work that advances our understanding of the determinants, processes and outcomes of human migration. Please note, this call for papers has now closed

Migration has always defined human populations, and today it is one of the most powerful currents shaping global society. In recent decades, the increasing scope, complexity and salience of human migration have inspired new conceptual and policy vocabularies, and stimulated ground-breaking research efforts across many different academic disciplines.

Migration Studies will contribute to the consolidation of this still-fragmented field of study, developing the core concepts that link different disciplinary perspectives on migration, and bringing new voices into ongoing debates and discussions. Drawing on the expertise and networks of a Global Editorial Board of senior migration scholars, the journal will publish articles of exceptional quality and general interest from around the world.

Migration Studies invites papers that contribute substantively to a core scholarly discipline or sub-discipline, while engaging with migration research in other disciplines. Papers will be reviewed through a global editorial board including senior scholars in each of the following fields: anthropology; demography; economics; forced migration; geography; history; international relations; sociology; political science.

The editorial team also welcomes book reviews, special issue proposals, and ideas for presenting content in new ways.
