The Journal of Ethnic and Migration Studies (JEMS)
JEMS publishes the results of high-quality, cutting-edge research from across the social science disciplines and addresses themes relating to ethnic relations, diversity and migration.
Aims and scope of JEMS
The Journal of Ethnic and Migration Studies (JEMS) publishes the results of first-class research on all forms of migration and its consequences, together with articles on ethnic conflict, discrimination, racism, nationalism, citizenship and policies of integration. Contributions to the journal, which are all fully refereed, are especially welcome when they are the result of original empirical research that makes a clear contribution to the field of migration
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. Potential contributors may find detailed information on submission on the 'Instructions for Authors' webpage.
All research articles in this journal have undergone rigorous peer review, based on initial editor screening and anonymised refereeing by at least two anonymous referees.
Any queries should be sent to the Editorial team at email@example.com
JEMS and SCMR
The editorship of JEMS has been based at Sussex for 23 years. SCMR Director Professor Paul Statham has been Editor-in-Chief since 2013, and a number of SCMR members are involved in the journal as Deputy Editors, Associate Editors, Editorial Assistants and peer reviewers.
We are grateful to the publishers of JEMS, Taylor & Francis, for supporting the SCMR-JEMS Annual Conference and other academic and community activities conducted by SCMR.
