Springer has announced a partnership with IMISCOE, the largest network of excellence on migration and diversity in the world. This partnership will allow for the publication of their open access journal Comparative Migration Studies and their book series IMISCOE Research Series. Springer shared this news in their release titled, “Springer partners with IMISCOE on open access journal and book series on migration.

Comparative Migration Studies is an international, peer-reviewed open access journal that provides a platform for articles that focus on comparative research in migration, integration, and ethnic studies.

Springer will also publish the IMISCOE Research Series, the official book series of IMISCOE. Most titles in the series will be published open access and be available through SpringerOpen as well as on SpringerLink.

This type of collaboration and support for open access is inspiring and sets a good precedent for future endeavors to be open to all.
