IZA Journal of Migration examines various issues related to migration
Very fast decision making and publication process
High quality outlet for both theoretical and applied papers
The IZA Journal of Migration is a peer-reviewed open access journal published under the brand SpringerOpen, covering all issues related to the economics of migration and ethnicity in developed or developing countries. The journal constitutes the first platform dedicated to fostering the international debate and to promoting publication excellence in the field of migration economics.
The IZA Journal of Migration publishes original theoretical and applied contributions, including topics such as the determinants and consequences of human mobility in both sending and receiving regions and the analysis of migration experience – including the assimilation of migrants and their children, their occupational choices, the role of immigrants’ social networks and remittance behavior. Likewise, the journal encourages submissions of papers covering topics such as the economic analysis of ethnicity, ethnic identity, and language.
At a broader level, the IZA Journal of Migration aims at providing policymakers with evidence-based insight on the economics of internal and international migration. As such, papers which focus on the role of migration policies dealing with the monitoring of immigration flows, the process of naturalization, and asylum or illegal migration are also welcome.
To enable the journals to make all of their content open access, usually SpringerOpen journals levy an article-processing charge (APC) for each manuscript accepted after peer review.
The publication costs for articles in the IZA Journal Series are covered by IZA - Institute for the Study of Labor, so authors do not need to pay an article processing charge. Authors are supposed to actively support the IZA journals by refereeing a certain number of articles. Referee reports will be due 21 days after you accept assignment.
More detailed information about the journal can be found on its dedicated website at www.izajom.com, where you can also access all articles. As an additional service, all articles are also hosted on SpringerLink, Springer’s online collection of STM books, journals, protocols and reference works.
