Brief Guidelines for Submission:
Letters should be original unpublished accounts about 3,500 - 4,000 words or 10-14 printed journal pages in length,
excluding the footnotes and references. Submissions must be written in English and should be sent by e-mail to the
Editor at firstname.lastname@example.org. Letters should be submitted as a single word file including all material. Opinions
expressed in letters are only those of authors and not necessarily those of editors or publisher. Authors are personally
responsible to obtain permission for reprint of previously published material in other sources.
Notes in the text should be numbered seriatim and include information which is not appropriate in the main text. Tables
and figures should be integrated in the text and the copy editors may change the place of them whenever necessary.
The title page must include an abstract of about 100 words and 5 key words. Full contact information with institutional
affiliations must also be provided. Introduction, literature review and data should be kept to a minimum unless it is
essential to the paper. Manuscripts submitted to Migration Letters will not be returned.
Format of the text should be as follows: all references to books, articles and other sources should be inserted in the
text; reference should contain the last name of the author, year of publication and pagination where appropriate, e.g.
(Green, 2003: 187); for co-authored sources, provide names for two authors if dual authorship, for more than two
authors use et al. after the first author’s name. For institutions, use abbreviations. The reference list should be placed
at the end of the text and must include only the sources referred in the text. All items should be listed alphabetically by
author and by year of publication. Italics must be used for titles of books and journals.
All letters are refereed by the associate editors and/or external reviewers. The referees are expected to provide
