We regularly issue calls for authors to send us short paper proposals. Successful applicants will spend a two week residence period at the University of Amsterdam to develop their ideas into manuscript ready for submission. Authors who have been selected to prepare a manuscript for submission to Migration Politics are invited for a two-weeks authors’ residency at the University of Amsterdam. Up to three authors will be in residence during the same period. The residency will include one public presentation, intensive feedback sessions with the editorial team, other authors in residence, and other migration scholars working in or near Amsterdam. Scholars are welcome to submit co-authored work however the residency scheme covers a round trip and two weeks of accommodation for one person per accepted abstract. The accommodation and travel are conditional on the submission of a full draft paper submitted a month before the start of the residency. The next authors’ residencies will take place in the Spring (April 2021) and Fall (October 2021).
Depending on COVID regulations, we may offer online or blended alternatives to a two-week Amsterdam residency.
After the residency, manuscripts submitted to Migration Politics will be sent out for external review. In this phase, we expect the acceptance rate to be much higher than the usual 5-10%, because of the initial stringent selection of abstracts, and because of the intensive editorial process.
