Their articles have appeared in at least two of the journals, and at least one of their articles has been published during the past decade. So in that sense, the list is a tool for exploration, not just confirmation. For instance, there are anthropologists and economists who make important contributions to the field, but publish primarily in discipline-specific journals. And some migration scholars, like Alan Gamlen, Elzbieta Gozdziak, and Peter Scholten, have been busy running or setting up their own migration journals.
And the six people based in Asia are all working in countries of immigration. This geographical bias continues to be a major challenge for migration research. Here are the names listed by country, with hyperlinks to the alpabetical list below. Some of the publications are co-authored with others.
Who is who in migration studies: names worth knowing – Jørgen Carling
Lack of Political Will or Purposeful Mismanagement? Did you read the caveats and see that I mention you specifically?
I did! You got us talking. If you want to continue this kind of analysis-which I think is very worthy—I think the focus should not be on individual scholars, but for example on the geographies and disciplines from which migration scholars come, gender and age of authors, etc.. I think Russell King did something like that for JEMS to see if they published people from all over the world or from selected places.
Thanks for these good points. I will indeed continue this a bit more thoroughly in another format, and will have your input in mind.

Throughout its history, Africa has experienced important voluntary and forced migratory movements, which have contributed to its contemporary demographic landscape. Significant internal migratory movements — such as rural— urban migration — add to the complexity of the picture. They are also engaged in a perpetual cycle of migration due to cross-border economic activity and pastoralist traditions.
