Nordic Migration Research (NMR) is a membership-based organisation of individuals and institutions conducting or using research related to different aspects of international migration.

About us

NJMR – Nordic Journal of Migration Research

The Nordic Journal of Migration Research (NJMR) publishes theoretical and empirical analyses of migration, including themes such as nationalism and transnationalism, ethnic relations and racism, border practices and belonging. The journal gives priority to Nordic issues, but publishes articles also from other geographical contexts and is open to different methodological approaches.

NJMR was founded in 2011 by the Nordic Migration Research (NMR). It is a continuation of the Norwegian Journal of Migration Research (2000–2009) and the Finnish Journal of Ethnicity and Migration (2006–2010). NJMR is a double-blind peer-reviewed and open access international journal that is free of cost for authors and readers alike. It is financed with a grant from the Nordic Board for Periodicals in the Humanities and Social Sciences (NOP-HS), support by the Society for the Study of Ethnic Relations and International Migration (ETMU), and NMR membership fees.


Join us

NMR has two types of memberships, institutional membership and individual membership.

Two tiers of membership are open for institutions wanting to support the work of NMR: Institutional Membership (300 euros/year) and Key Supporter (1500 euros/year). This support enables the NMR to run the Nordic Journal of Migration Research and other activities. To show our appreciation, supporting institutions are displayed on our webpage, in our conferences and in our journal.

Individual membership is biannual and acquired when participating in our conference, the Nordic Migration Research Conference, as a paying participant.
