About the Journal
Aims & Scope
Mashriq & Mahjar: Journal of Middle East and North African Migration Studies is an online, open access, peer-reviewed journal devoted to disseminating original research on migration from, to, and within the Middle East and North Africa. The journal welcomes submissions on all aspects of human movement and the circulation of ideas, cultural artifacts, and commodities, from the disciplinary perspectives of history, anthropology, economics, political science, sociology, art history, literary studies, and comparative religion. The journal readership comprises any person or organization interested in aspects of MENA migration. Each issue contains double-blind peer-reviewed articles and detailed reviews of relevant publications. The journal publishes two issues per year on a rolling basis. We wish to note that the publication schedule during 2020 and 2021 was irregular and impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic and resultant personnel changes.
