Migration and ethnicity are current and well-established areas of contemporary social research. New phenomena and processes in the world – globalization, increasing spatial mobility of people, delocalization and relocalization of culture – are the reason for the growing scientific interest in issues of migration, ethnicity and identity. The Journal of Migration and Ethnic Themes opens the possibility of exchanging ideas, public debates and interdisciplinary dialogue to researchers dealing with this topic.
The scientific journal Migration and Ethnic Themes primarily publishes scientific papers on migration, issues related to migration and demographic change, and papers on various aspects of ethnicity and identity in an international, national and interethnic context. The contributions bring theoretical achievements as well as empirical analyzes and studies in a wide range of disciplinary approaches.
As an international, the magazine truly covers the whole world with its interest; Papers are published in Croatian and English, and by special decision of the editorial board in other languages. The international character of the journal is defined both by the subject matter of the articles and by the international composition of the authors, reviewers, editorial board and publishing council.
The journal publishes primarily scientific papers, but also other articles of scientific and professional interest: essays, professional papers, reviews, reviews, reviews and announcements of scientific conferences.
All scientific papers are subject to a rigorous review process that includes an initial editorial check and at least two double-blind reviews by anonymous reviewers.
Receipt and publication of papers is free of charge.
The complete texts of the papers are available on the website of Hrčak – the portal of scientific journals of the Republic of Croatia and on the web pages of the journal editing system (OJS).
The magazine provides open access to its entire content. The Institute for Migration and Ethnic Studies, as the publisher, supports the Croatian Declaration on Open Access.
