AHMR Journal

The African Human Mobility Review (AHMR) is an interdisciplinary peer-reviewed on-line journal created to encourage and facilitate the study of all aspects (socio-economic, political, legislative and developmental) of human mobility in Africa.

Through the publication of original research, policy discussions and evidence-based research papers, AHMR provides a comprehensive forum devoted exclusively to the analysis of contemporaneous trends, migration patterns and some of the most important migration-related issues. The journal is accessible on-line at no charge.

AHMR is jointly owned by the Scalabrini Institute for Human Mobility in Africa (SIHMA) and University of the Western Cape (UWC).

At the moment, AHMR is also accredited by the South African Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET) Journal List

The Journal has Impact Factor Value of 0.836 based on International Citation Report (ICR) for the year 2019-2020.



AHMR welcomes manuscripts on the various aspects of human mobility in Africa. Contributors are requested to submit their manuscripts in English to the Chief Editor for critical peer review. Each issue of AHMR has a theme but a part of each issue is usually set aside for articles on other issues related to human mobility in Africa.

As part of our continuing efforts to support both authors and reviewers AHMR has adopted the web-based submission. All manuscript submissions must be made via the SIHMA website.

Before submitting your manuscript please refer to the submission guidelines.

If you have any questions about the submission process, please contact ahmr@sihma.org.za
