OMNES: Journal of Migration and Society
Authors should submit manuscripts according to the following procedures.
Only the title should appear on the first page of the manuscript, and a
separate cover page with title, author's name, affiliation and contact
information should be attached. In cases of multiple authorships, we
need the preceding information for each of the authors, but one author
should be clearly designated as the contact author. Once designated,
that individual will receive all communication from OMNES. Submit the
manuscript on line as an e-mail attachment to email@example.com. E-mail
submissions will not be returned. Copyright on contributions passes to
OMNES upon publication.
Manuscript Length and Style
A manuscript may be up to 10,000 words including notes and references,
and an additional 500 word abstract. The manuscript pages should be
numbered consecutively, including tables, graphs, and appendices. All
the text, endnotes, bibliographic citations, and appendix materials in a
manuscript must be double spaced and printed in a 10 point Times Roman

at the end of the manuscript, each one on a separate page. Authors
should submit manuscripts following the reference styles in the examples

Authors may review articles or other "texts" in order to show how these
materials illuminate a larger conceptual or normative concern. Review
articles vary in length, averaging about 8,000 words (10 journal pages).
While review articles sometimes originate in proposals submitted to the
editorial office, many result from invitations that our book review
editor extends to specific authors. In either case, the editor and book
review editor collaborate in the editorial process for review articles.
Book Review publishes single, double, and triple book reviews (typically
1,000, 1,500, and 2,000 words respectively). It also publishes symposia,
