Journal on Migration and Human Security

Journal on Migration and Human Security is a policy-oriented journal committed to 'widely shared goals' in the field of migration management and immigrant integration. It is owned by the Center for Migration Studies, which also owns the IMR but is edited by the centre's director and has an almost entirely US-based editorial board. A subtle indicator of the journal's profile is that the articles have an 'executive summary' rather than an abstract.

How established is it?

Journal on Migration and Human Security is 10 years old (launched in 2013) and is published by Sage. The journal publishes fewer than 20 articles per year (estimated by Google Scholar). It is not included in any of the five databases used for compiling the PRIO Guide to Migration Journals.

How much are the articles cited?

The proportion of articles in Journal on Migration and Human Security that are cited at least once within a few years of publication is much higher than average for journals included in the guide. The average number of citations to each article is unknown (because the journal is not covered by "Scimago).

What are the options for open access?

Journal on Migration and Human Security has a hybrid publication model, meaning that only subscribers have access to all articles, but that individual articles can be made open access on the basis of paying a fee. The journal does not have a Sherpa Romeo page that displays the conditions for sharing the accepted manuscript online (Green Open Access), so that would have to be found out from the publisher.

How long are the articles?

Journal on Migration and Human Security invites articles of up to 10000 words. For more information about submissions and access to past articles, see the journal's web site.
