Abstract

Migration was and is an important topic of academic, societal and political debate. Historical migration research generates a wealth of articles. The Journal of Migration History ( jmh ) is the first to specialise in this field. So far, articles on migration history either appeared in journals specialising in current issues, or in more general historical journals. They also appear in journals that focus on certain areas (i.e. Asia, Europe, Africa) or in journals that focus on a particular time period (Ancient History, Medieval History). We felt there was a need for a journal that covers a long period (from Antiquity until now) and all parts of the world, enabling it to strengthen comparisons over time and space. This is a key goal of migration research and a key aspect of this journal. The peer-reviewed Journal of Migration History publishes historical studies on migration that combine methods, theories and insights from the social sciences, archaeology, anthropology, genetics, linguistics, and economics. It publishes studies that emphasise connectivity, tying in with the vibrant field of global history. The journal publishes on how people move, but also on how goods and ideas move with them. jmh looks at movement and mobility
