Migration and Development

Migration and Development is a relatively new journal, launched on the back of surging interest in the links between migration and development. It was hosted initially by the Centre for Development Studies, Kerala, and currently has its editorial base at the International Institute of Migration and Development. Over half the editorial board is based in Asia.

How established is it?

Migration and Development is 11 years old (launched in 2012) and is published by Routledge. The journal publishes about 50 articles per year (estimated by Google Scholar). It is included in 1 of the databases used for compiling the PRIO Guide to Migration Journals (Google Scholar Metrics).

How much are the articles cited?

The proportion of articles in Migration and Development 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?

Migration and Development 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. See the journal's Sherpa Romeo page about the conditions for sharing the accepted manuscript online (Green Open Access).

How long are the articles?

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