The Journal of Citizenship and Globalisation Studies (JCGS) is interested in the complex and often contradictory meanings of citizenship, social inclusion and globalisation at the local, national and transnational levels.
To this end JCGS publishes high-quality innovative empirical and theoretical papers that critically engage with:
emergent practices of community and citizenship at multiple levels of social life
tensions and innovations in contemporary practices of governance, security and democracy around the world
the plural and contested constructions and claims of identity within and between complex societies
the ways heritage and (material as well as intangible) culture elicit contestation and dissonance, as well as different modes of being in the world today
the nexus between discrimination and disparity, and its impact on development and human rights
uncovering theory, policy and practice necessary for the achievement of social justice
JCGS is multidisciplinary and welcomes submissions from: sociology; anthropology; political science; philosophy; history; development studies; migration studies; international relations; postcolonial studies; education, and others that addresses the journal’s scope above.
JCGS is also a global publication, which aims to contribute to the construction of global knowledges; unconstrained by borders or boundaries. It particularly welcomes submissions that adopt transnational, intercultural and international frames and methods.
The editors welcome proposals for Special Issues and Special Sections that address the journal’s aims. See the special issue request form for more details.
SimilarityCheck Plagiarism Screening System
The editorial board is participating in a growing community of SimilarityCheck System’s users in order to ensure that the content published is original and trustworthy. SimilarityCheck is a medium that allows for comprehensive manuscripts screening, aimed to eliminate plagiarism and provide a high standard and quality peer-review process.

JCGS implements double-blind peer review, so please ensure that all personal data is removed from the main document, and that the file name of this document includes the phrase ‘For Peer Review’.
Your submission should be accompanied by a Cover Page, inclusive of: a complete list of authors; short biographical notes; abstract; complete correspondence details; and a list of suggested keywords.

Please see the "Tables, Figures, and Supplementary Material" section below for more detailed instructions regarding figure submission.

All submissions will undergo initial editor screening based only on the intellectual content of the submission and its relevance to journal scope. If application, double-blind peer review follows. Editors aim to ensure that peer review is constructive and timely.

Embed figures within the text body of the manuscript and submit figures in separate files. Only figures (graphs, line drawings, photographs, etc) should be labeled as ‘figures’, not tables or equations.
