Call for Editor: Journal of International Migration and Integration 


Springer invites your nominations for the editorship of the Journal of International Migration and Integration (JIMI). This leading scientific journal in the field of migration and integration research, publishes 1 volume of 4 issues per year. JIMI is a multidisciplinary peer-reviewed scholarly journal that publishes original research papers and policy discussions that enhance the understanding of immigration, settlement and integration and that contribute to policy development.

The journal consistently covers an array of subject areas including labor market integration; refugee status in various nations; adaptation strategies of immigrants in industrialized settings; racial and gender variations in migration; the role of social work in the integration of new citizens; and retention of ethnic and older national identities in new environments. These are issues of concern throughout the world. The journal looks at the social world with a fresh vision enhanced by the basic and applied social sciences. JIMI presents papers based on original research, critical policy debates and comparative analyses. JIMI no longer publishes book reviews.

The current editorial team of JIMI consists of one editor and an international advisory board. However the publisher would be open to suggestions of having an editorial team of two editors and adding deputy editors and editorial board members. The editor is responsible for accepting and rejecting manuscripts on the basis of the quality of the research presented and the suitability of the subject matter; guiding manuscripts through the review process; overseeing revisions; and planning issues.

Nominees should possess managerial skills and represent a team approach to leadership. Besides that the nominees should have proven excellence and broad expertise in migration studies and a good overview of the disciplines involved. A good command of English is a requisite. Nominees need sound institutional backing to successfully carry out their duties as an Editor. Springer reimburses the editor by means of an annual fee. The editor should expect to serve at least a three year term as editor.
