Immigrant and Refugee Studies

The Journal of Immigrant and Refugee Studies (JIRS) invites Special Issue Proposals for 2024-2025. The deadline for submission is 15 January 2023. Please send your proposal to [email protected] to the attention of Prof. Anna Triandafyllidou and Dr. Irina Isaakyan, by 17.00 hours CET.

Submission Instructions

Special Issue proposals should be between 4,000 and 5,000 words and should include the following information:

A short conceptual, empirical and methodological rationale, explaining:

  • why this Special Issue is important in scholarly and political/policy terms;
  • what it adds to existing literatures on the topic;
  • why the selected papers, case studies and approaches have been chosen;
  • how the Special Issue connects the proposed papers into a coherent whole (in other words how is this SI different than the sum of its parts);

Paper abstracts;

Very short biographical notes of the contributing authors (3-4 lines)

Long biographical notes or short CVs of the guest editors (max 1 page each)

 

Length of proposed Special Issues: a max of 7 papers of 7,500-8,000 words each and an introduction paper (6,000 to 8,000 words)

 

Proposals Review Procedure

Proposals are evaluated by the Editor in Chief and Associate Editor of the JIRS and at least 2 additional members of the journal’s Editorial Board. We expect to announce the results in March 2023.

 

What happens after your proposal is selected?

Selected proposals will be invited to proceed with the preparation of the special issue for double-blind peer review. Normally guest-editors should do at least one round of peer review themselves, and then submit officially. We usually try to assign 3-4 reviewers that assess several papers or the entire Special Issue to ensure they have an overall view of the Special Issue. During the reviewing phase, we keep guest-editors informed of the progress. Once a SI is accepted, the aim is to help authors improve their papers and have them published. However, there could be instances where a paper is rejected and not included in the Special Issue.
