How to publish in this journal


The Refugee Survey Quarterly is a peer-reviewed, academic journal that focuses on the challenges of forced migration from multidisciplinary and policy-oriented perspectives. Refugee Survey Quarterly provides a vehicle for wide-ranging analyses and exploration of forced migration related issues. The RSQ also acts as an authoritative forum for the dissemination of ideas and expertise between the academic community, policy- and decision-makers, and practitioners. Published four times a year, the RSQ publishes one thematic special issue each year, while the other three issues are open issues, publishing articles across a range of subjects and viewpoints. The Editor invites submissions of articles from a broad range of disciplines, which might include international relations, politics, law, history, geography, sociology, anthropology, economics, development studies and migration studies. Submitted articles can cover various areas from a policy and/or multidisciplinary perspective, including governance of migration, sociology of forced migration, the changing pattern and the historical evolution of the refugee regime or contemporary challenges of international protection, such as those raised by mixed migration, climate change, or post-conflict peace-building. All papers are submitted to a rigorous blind peer review process in order to ensure the high quality of the RSQ. Join the conversation about this journal

The SJR is a size-independent prestige indicator that ranks journals by their 'average prestige per article'. It is based on the idea that 'all citations are not created equal'. SJR is a measure of scientific influence of journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where such citations come from It measures the scientific influence of the average article in a journal, it expresses how central to the global scientific discussion an average article of the journal is.

Total Documents

Evolution of the number of published documents. All types of documents are considered, including citable and non citable documents.

Citations per document

This indicator counts the number of citations received by documents from a journal and divides them by the total number of documents published in that journal. The chart shows the evolution of the average number of times documents published in a journal in the past two, three and four years have been cited in the current year. The two years line is equivalent to journal impact factor ™ (Thomson Reuters) metric.
