Journal of Gypsy Studies

Journal of Gypsy Studies (JGS) was founded in 2015 and launched in 2016 and published twice a year (May and October) by Transnational Press London.
Journal of Gypsy Studies is an international, interdisciplinary peer-reviewed journal publishing research and scholarship in all areas of Gypsy/Romani studies. Journal of Gypsy Studies invites articles on the cultures, demography, economy, politics, health and identities of all groups traditionally known as and associated with Gypsies, Travellers and peripatetic groups. Although these groups are often referred to as Gypsy, Roma, Traveller etc., the journal is titled with the most widely used name. Journal of Gypsy Studies aims at publishing articles in humanities, social sciences, business and management, economics, law, anthropology, politics, sociology, anthropology, linguistics, literature, folklore, music, geography and health sciences. A variety of formats are available including research articles, debates, conversations/interviews, book reviews, opinion and viewpoints and letters. 
Journal of Gypsy Studies aims to be a quality venue for scholarly exchange and therefore follows a strict editorial review policy with double blind reviewing and adhering to ethical publishing principles to ensure the Journal is included in indexes such as SSCI, SCOPUS, EBSCO and others.

Call for Papers: Journal of Gypsy Studies inaugural issue


The Journal of Gypsy Studies is an international, peer-reviewed journal that publishes research articles, conversations/interviews, book reviews, conference reports, viewpoints, and letters on the groups known as and associated with Gypsies. Although the production of academic work pertaining to the cultural, social, economic, and political lives of Gypsies is increasing, there is still a need for research and theoretical contributions that centre on issues of poverty, discrimination, the sedentary/nomad divide, migration, urban policies, and citizenship and identity, among others.

The aim of the Journal of Gypsy Studies is to create a platform where different disciplines and approaches can be brought together to address these topics and establish a genuine forum for serious discussion and exchange among researchers in the field.

The journal addresses a broad audience of students, professionals, policy makers, and enthusiasts, and offers an accessible venue for sound scholarship and research.
