ABOUT THE JOURNAL:
Nordic Journal of Migration Research is a peer-reviewed, open access international journal. Its areas of focus include migration theory and analyses of migratory processes, integration policies and intercultural relations. It gives high priority to Nordic issues and comparative studies of integration in Nordic and non-Nordic countries. It will occasionally publish guest-edited Special Issues devoted to particular themes or theoretical problems. The journal was founded in 2011 by Nordic Migration Research. It is a continuation of the Norwegian Journal of Migration Research (2000-2009) and the Finnish Journal of Ethnicity and Migration (2006-2010).
The goal of NJMR is to contribute to improving the state of the art in the field, in both theoretical and empirical terms, by publishing insightful, cutting-edge and impactful research. NJMR aims to be multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary in both content and methodology, and welcomes submissions from scholars in all social science and humanities. We accept scholarly articles, research papers, book reviews, review articles and short academic debate pieces that are previously not published or currently not under evaluation by another publisher.
NJMR publishes four issues a year – March, June, September and December.
The editors-in-chief of the journal are Tuomas Martikainen in the University of Helsinki (Finland) and Hakan G. Sicakkan in the University of Bergen (Norway). The managing editor is Tiina Vaittinen in the University of Tampere (Finland), and the book review editors are Suvi Keskinen in the University of Turku (Finland), Laura Hirvi in the University of Jyväskylä (Finland), and Berit Berg in the Norwegian University of Science and Technology.
