Journal of Ethnic and Migration Studies

Aims and scope  JEMS cover

The Journal of Ethnic and Migration Studies (JEMS) publishes the results of high-quality, cutting-edge research from across the social science disciplines that addresses themes relating to ethnic relations, diversity and migration. Within the field, JEMS is  a ‘broad church’ and open to a range of disciplines and perspectives on all forms of migration and its consequences, as well as ethnic relations, discrimination, racism, nationalism and transnationalism, citizenship, identity and hybridity, globalisation and cosmopolitanism, and policies of integration. Contributions to the Journal are especially welcome when they are the result of comparative research, for example within Europe, between one or more European country and the countries of North America and the Asia-Pacific, or between migrant groups.

JEMS has a long-standing interest in informed policy debate and contributions are welcomed which seek to develop the implications of research for policy innovation, or which evaluate the results of previous initiatives. The Journal is also interested in publishing the results of theoretical work.

All research articles published in JEMS have undergone rigorous peer review, based on initial editor screening and anonymised refereeing by at least two anonymous referees.

Professor Paul Statham, director of the SCMR, has been the Editor-in-chief of JEMS since 2013, together with Dr James Hampshire (Deputy Editor), Dr Laura Morosanu and Dr Sarah Scuzzarello (Associate Editors)
