Migration Research Hub: Migration research under one roof, now online Open access database gives new possibilities for cross-discipline collaboration.
Rotterdam, 10-10-2019 – IMISCOE, Europe’s largest network of scholars in migration and integration, is launching the Migration Research Hub. Based on a taxonomy developed as part of the CrossMigration research project, the Migration Research Hub collects research on migration and organizes it to be easily searchable and shareable, and its open access nature means that everyone can consult and add to the body of research.
For the first time, information on publications, research projects, datasets and experts has been brought together in one fully-searchable database, underpinned by a taxonomy created and refined by experts in migration from a wide range of angles.
The Migration Research Hub stresses the collaborative and cross-disciplinary nature of migration research, and invites researchers in all related fields and disciplines to provide feedback and contributions towards a better and more useful research tool for all.
As Peter Scholten, Director of IMISCOE, said, “We want the Migration Research Hub to be inclusive and useful to all, so we are inviting all migration researchers to become part of the Hub, to make their research and projects accessible to the broader migration research community and foster the creation of new lines of research”.
