Editors' Quote

Amelie Constant Denis Fougère Tommaso Colussi

"The IZA Journal of Migration is the only one journal entirely devoted to issues concerning socioeconomic causes and consequences of migration and integration of migrants. It is open to original and innovative high-quality research articles that will surely contribute to the public debate on migration. Our goal is to publish the crème de la crème of migration papers and to keep them 'moving'."

Aims & scope


The IZA Journal of Migration covers all issues related to the economics of migration and ethnicity in developed or developing countries. The journal constitutes the first platform dedicated to fostering the international debate and to promoting publication excellence in the field of migration economics.

The IZA Journal of Migration publishes original theoretical and applied contributions, including topics such as the determinants and consequences of human mobility in both sending and receiving regions and the analysis of migration experience – including the assimilation of migrants and their children, their occupational choices, the role of immigrants’ social networks and remittance behavior. Likewise, the journal encourages submissions of papers covering topics such as the economic analysis of ethnicity, ethnic identity, and language.

At a broader level, the IZA Journal of Migration aims at providing policymakers with evidence-based insight on the economics of internal and international migration. As such, papers which focus on the role of migration policies dealing with the monitoring of immigration flows, the process of naturalization, and asylum or illegal migration are also welcome.

The IZA Journal of Migration belongs to the family of field journals in the IZA Journal Series with Springer, also including: (i) the IZA Journal of Labor Economics, (ii) the IZA Journal of Labor Policy, (iii) the IZA Journal of European Labor Studies, and (iv) the IZA Journal of Labor & Development. Each journal publishes 24 articles per year, where each article should be about 10,000 words (including tables, figures and references).
