Migration Studies – Review of Polish Diaspora is a quarterly journal published by the Research Committee on Human Migrations and on Polish Diaspora affiliated with the Presidium of the Polish Academy of Sciences. The new title continues the tradition of the "Przegląd Polonijny" – an academic journal first published in 1975 as an initiative of the Research Committee on Polish Diaspora, Polish Academy of Sciences.
From the very beginning "Review of Polish Diaspora" (first published as a semiannual and since 1978 as a quarterly journal) has been a multi-disciplinary academic journal where history and transformations of Polish communities abroad are analyzed in the context of wider processes of migrations and ethnic relations. Extended new title informs of the actual thematic range of the articles published in the journal. We are not limited to the subject of Polish Diaspora, on the contrary, we try to avoid the trap of ethnocentrism.
We publish articles about past and contemporary processes of international migrations and transformations of immigrant communities in new areas of their residence. We are interested in all aspects of migration processes, ranging from the issues of migration policies and attitudes of state authorities towards immigrants to the issues of collective and individual identities. The first volume under the new title (2009/1) was an invitation to debate on the main concepts and methods in modern studies of migration.
