    Overview

    Call for Proposals: Special Issues for 2018

    Nordic Journal of Migration Research is a double blind peer-reviewed, open access international journal that is cost free for authors and readers alike.

    The journal publishes theoretical and empirical analyses of migratory processes, dealing with themes such as nationalism and transnationalism, ethnic relations and racism, border practices and belonging. The journal gives priority to Nordic issues, but publishes articles also from other geographical contexts. We are open to different methodological approaches, and publish 1-2 guest edited Special Issues per year (see Guidelines for SI proposals).

    The journal was founded in 2011 by Nordic Migration Research (NMR). It is a continuation of the Norwegian Journal of Migration Research (2000-2009) and the Finnish Journal of Ethnicity and Migration (2006-2010). Our funding comes from the NMR network, as well as from partner organisations, such as research institutions.

    Submission of Manuscripts

    Instructions for Authors

    HOW TO PREPARE YOUR MANUSCRIPT?

    The submitted manuscripts should be no longer than 8,000 words, including the abstract, keywords, endnotes, tables, figures and references.

    In all manuscripts, there should be an abstract of 150 words, which summarises the content and conclusion of the article.

    Please provide also five keywords in the end of the abstract.

    Use the font size 12 (Times New Roman or equivalent) and double spacing throughout the text, also in the list of references and endnotes. Pages should be numbered consecutively.

    Footnotes should be avoided, but there may be a limited number of endnotes, numbered consecutively at the end of the text.

    Pictures (300 dpi), tables and figures (excel or Word) can be sent as separate files or they can be embedded in the text. When sending them as separate files, the eventual position should be clearly indicated in the text.

    Articles should be original and not under simultaneous consideration for publication elsewhere, either in part or full. Please note that any attempts of plagiarism will be taken very seriously, and standard academic ethical guidelines should be followed by all our authors.

    HOW TO SUBMIT?

    Please submit your manuscript in RTF or Word format through the Editorial Manager submission platform at http://edmgr.editool.com/njmr/default.htm .

    You will have to register when submitting to the system for the first time. When submitting a co-authored manuscript all authors will get an email after the submission, asking them to register to the platform.

    The submitted manuscript should be fully anonymised, without a title page or any other details that may help the reviewers to identify the author(s). Please anonymise also the references to your own work.

    When submitting a manuscript, please provide the journal also with 2-3 names of potential referees along with their contact details (email).

    Please read carefully also the NJMR reference guidelines below, and follow them punctually.

    NJMR REFERENCE GUIDELINES

    When submitting your MS, you should provide complete, correct and properly structured references, as instructed in these guidelines.

    Please note that his is not only a stylistic issue, but highly important also for the reference linking of your article: Complete and correct references may allow automatic creation of active links by the MetaPress technology that we use for making the electronic version of our journal. Active reference linking is regarded as the greatest benefit of electronic publishing and it adds a lot of value to your publication.

    For the same reasons, it is important also for the Special Issue authors and editors to follow these guidelines in all referencing – including the citations to other articles in the same Special Issue. This means that the Special Issue authors should not use the expression (Author, this issue), but instead (Author, 2014).

    The following sections give you detailed instructions on citing books, journal articles, newspaper articles, conference papers, webpages and others.

    Please provide all the required elements in the references to your paper, paying particular attention to spelling, capitalization and punctuation. Accuracy and completeness of references are the responsibilities of the author.

    Please note also that if your references have DOI numbers (DOI = digital object identifier, see http://www.doi.org/), these should be included in the references. DOIs are very easy to find. Most publishers, if they use DOI numbers, place them at the top of the article front page. The DOI number will automatically make the active reference link in an online publication, hence adding the value of your publication.

    Harvard style referencing

    NJMR uses Harvard style referencing, which means that you must provide (a) in-text (parenthetical, author/date) citations in the main body of the article, and (b) a list of references at the end.

    N.B. If you need to clarify your arguments by adding notes in the text, please use endnotes.

    The in-text (parenthetical) citation:

    Each reference in the text must be identified with the name(s) of the author(s), the year of publication and pagination, which are separated from the text by parentheses.

    E.g.

    Their subjectivity is at once deterritorialized in relation to a particular country, though highly localized in relation to family (Ong 1993: 771-772).

    or

    Ong (1993: 771-772) writes that…

    Please note that there is no punctuation between the surname and the date, and that the page numbers are separated from the date by a colon.

    N.B. More than one reference must be separated by a semicolon, and organized alphabetically: (Bond et al. 1985: 36-40; Guevarra 2010a: 2; Jones n.d.; UNHCR 2011)

    The listing of references:

    Please compile all the sources referred to in the text at the end of your MS, and organize them alphabetically under the title “References”.
