Call for application 2022 Migration Politics fellowships

The editorial team of the journal Migration Politics warmly welcome paper proposals for our authors’ fellowship in the residence programme. We are seeking submissions from scholars conducting innovative and inspiring research on the politics involved in representing, controlling, and managing migration. Successful applicants will spend a one week intensive residence period at the University of Amsterdam to develop their ideas into a manuscript ready for submission. In the run-up to the residence, the fellow will participate in virtual feedback sessions with the other upcoming fellows and expert discussants. The residency scheme covers a round trip and offers one week of accommodation for one person. During the residence, authors will participate in workshops and intensive feedback sessions with migration researchers in the Netherlands and – importantly – spend time in our beautiful city thinking through their ideas and writing them up into finished form. Scholars taking part in the author residency programme are expected to submit their papers for review to the Migration Politics journal that offers rigorous, single-blind peer review and full open access without article processing charges (platinum open access).
Migration Politics publishes peer-reviewed scholarly contributions on the politics involved in representing, controlling and managing migration. The journal is not a generalist migration journal, nor a topical Political Science journal. Instead, we feature articles that promote inter-disciplinary conversations amongst Geographers, Political Scientists, Anthropologists, Historians, Sociologists and Legal Scholars on the relationship between migration and political institutions, processes and power. We seek contributions that present theoretically challenging ideas. Papers should present original empirical and/or theoretical analysis and be methodologically rigorous. The Senior Editorial Fellows of Migration Politics are Saskia Bonjour, Evelyn Ersanilli, and Darshan Vigneswaran. Migration Politics is a highly selective journal that adopts a uniquely intensive approach to the curation of cutting edge scholarly work. We regularly issue calls for authors to send us short paper proposals. Our editorial team then works intensively with selected authors to develop their ideas into polished manuscripts, including a two-week authors’ residency at the University of Amsterdam. These manuscripts are then 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. Migration Politics does not accept unsolicited manuscripts.
We believe that the current system of academic publishing has reached its limits with academics working for free and journals making profits while the work has limited accessibility. In order to keep pace with these developments, Migration Politics is a full open access journal (platinum open access), meaning that articles are freely available in the official journal format from the moment of publication. There is no article processing fees (ACPs) for publication.
Migration Politics uses SciPost, a scholarly publication platform that guarantees both full open access and stringent scholarly refereeing. SciPost guarantees academic autonomy by soliciting sponsorship to cover operational costs from organisations (universities, research institutes, funding agencies) affiliated with authors who have published on SciPost. Papers on SciPost are indexed by Google Scholar. Migration Politics papers are placed on soc arxiv guaranteeing long-term availability to all readers.
Authors who have been selected to prepare a manuscript for submission to Migration Politics are invited for a one-week 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, as well as http://migrationpolitics.org/

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 one week 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. Depending on COVID regulations, we may offer online or blended alternatives to a one-week Amsterdam residency. The next authors’ residencies will take place in the Spring (April 2022) and Fall (October 2022). Please indicate your preference for either the Spring or the Fall residency in your application, as well as your availability during the month of your preference.
Manuscripts submitted to Migration Politics will be taken charge of by a member of the Editorial College, who will act as Lead Editor for the paper, with responsibility for selecting reviewers and writing decision letters based on those reviews. The Lead Editor requires a minimum of two reviewers to reach a decision on the paper. The Lead Editor will make revise and resubmit decisions independently. If the Lead Editor decides to reject or accept a paper for publication, this decision will be reviewed by a quorum of no less than five members from the Editorial College.
The Senior Editorial Fellows who convene the fellowship in residence program will not act as Lead Editors or reviewers for papers coming out of a residency.
Paper Proposal deadline: 15 November 2021
You are warmly invited to submit your paper proposal no later than 15 November 2021 to: migrationpolitics@uva.nl
Your paper proposal should:

  • consist of 1000-1500 words excluding references
  • state:
    o the core question/thesis of the paper
    o the expected contribution to ongoing scholarly debates (explain which debates the paper connects to, citing relevant work)
    o the methodological approach
    o the empirical material. Please note: data collection should be completed before submitting a paper proposal to Migration Politics residency programme
    o preliminary findings
  • include your name, affiliation, position, and contact details
