Call for Editor(s): International Migration
The International Organization for Migration (IOM) and Wiley invite applications for the editorship of International Migration. The journal is a refereed, scientific journal on migration issues as analyzed by demographers, geographers, economists, sociologists, political scientists and other social scientists from all parts of the world. It covers the entire field of policy relevance in international migration, giving attention not only to a breadth of topics reflective of policy concerns, but also attention to coverage of all regions of the world. Issues related to the entire ‘migration cycle’ from origin, transit, host, destination, and return and reintegration are all relevant to the journal.
International Migration publishes 1 volume of 6 issues per year. The journal publishes papers based on original research, critical policy debates and comparative analyses. Geographic diversity and contributions based on multi-disciplinary research are particular priorities of the journal.
The current editorial team of International Migration consists of one editor supported by 12 editorial board members. The IOM and Wiley would be open to suggestions of having an editorial team of two or more editors, perhaps with different disciplinary or regional/geographic expertise. The editorial team is responsible for commissioning content (articles or special issues), 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 peer review process; overseeing revisions, planning issues and reviewing special issue proposals.
Applicants should have broad expertise in migration studies and a good overview of the disciplines involved. Previous experience in editing journals or being involved in the editorial board of a journal would be desirable. Applicants need to demonstrate sound institutional backing to successfully carry out their duties as an Editor. The Editor should expect to serve at least a four-year term as editor, with the option to extend for another term by mutual agreement.
An annual honorarium will be offered.
Letters of interest and evidence of institutional backing for International Migration, along with the curriculum vitae of the applying editor(s) should be submitted to:
