About

Berghahn Books supports open access policies that aim at making scholarship available to a broader audience through the internet, through two levels of Open Access.

Our Green Access allows authors to post the final postprint version of their chapters, which is the final text after acceptance and peer review, but not the Publisher PDF, in their institutional repository, other relevant repositories, or your own website, after an embargo period.

Gold Access allows the Publisher PDF to be available immediately upon publication through the Publisher's website and elsewhere as it is needed. This usage is covered under the Creative Commons license CC BY-NC-ND 4.0, which offers the strongest protections for the rights of the Author. Gold Access requires the payment of a fee. Often the fee is paid by a university or funding organization. We also participate in new initiatives, such as Knowledge Unlatched, which provide alternative funding sources.

Peer review info

We will evaluate the initial proposal to decide whether it is suitable for us and, if this seems to be the case, it will be assessed in-house or by an expert. If we are confident the project is publishable, we will request that you send us the full manuscript. Once we have received the full manuscript, it will be sent out to several anonymous readers for peer review. If a book is intended for a series, we will also solicit the advice of the series editors – their level of involvement is at their discretion and varies from series to series.

Peer review is an important element of Berghahn's publishing process. It may take several months before a decision is reached on a full-length manuscript, depending on how soon we can secure readers and how quickly the readers submit their respective reports. Although more time may be agreed, we currently request that readers return their reports to us within six weeks from the time they accept the manuscript for review — you can find our Guidelines for Readers here. If we agree to publish your manuscript you will receive a written offer within one month of our decision. Upon sending you the readers’ reports, we will then ask you to submit a complete and revised manuscript by an agreed-upon date. It is very important that you consult our style guide and the editorial checklists provided with the publication acceptance when revising in order to avoid unnecessary delays at later stages.

License info

Berghahn Books supports policies that aim at making scholarship available to a broader audience through Open Access.

Gold Access requires the payment of a fee, which is often paid by a university or funding organization.

Abstract

Focusing on the lived experience of immigration policy and processes, this volume provides fascinating insights into the deportation process as it is felt and understood by those subjected to it. The author presents a rich and innovative ethnography of deportation and deportability experienced by migrants convicted of criminal offenses in England and Wales. The unique perspectives developed here – on due process in immigration appeals, migrant surveillance and control, social relations and sense of self, and compliance and resistance – are important for broader understandings of border control policy and human rights.This title was made Open Access by libraries from around the world through Knowledge Unlatched.

Abstract

Medical research has been central to biomedicine in Africa for over a century, and Africa, along with other tropical areas, has been crucial to the development of medical science. At present, study populations in Africa participate in an increasing number of medical research projects and clinical trials, run by both public institutions and private companies. Global debates about the politics and ethics of this research are growing and local concerns are prompting calls for social studies of the “trial communities” produced by this scientific work. Drawing on rich, ethnographic and historiographic ­­­material, this volume represents the emergent field of anthropological inquiry that links Africanist ethnography to recent concerns with science, the state, and the culture of late capitalism in Africa.

Abstract

Examining context-specific conditions in which girls live, learn, work, play, and organize deepens the understanding of place-making practices of girls and young women worldwide. Focusing on place across health, literary and historical studies, art history, communications, media studies, sociology, and education allows for investigations of how girlhood is positioned in relation to interdisciplinary and transnational research methodologies, media environments, geographic locations, historical and social spaces. This book offers a comprehensive and authoritative reading of this emerging field and how girlhood scholars construct and deploy research frameworks that directly engage girls in the research process.This title was made Open Access by libraries from around the world through Knowledge Unlatched.

Abstract

In Southeast Europe, the Balkans, and Middle East, scholars often refer to the “peaceful coexistence” of various religious and ethnic groups under the Ottoman Empire before ethnonationalist conflicts dissolved that shared space and created legacies of division. "Post-Ottoman Coexistence", interrogates ways of living together and asks what practices enabled centuries of cooperation and sharing, as well as how and when such sharing was disrupted. Contributors discuss both historical and contemporary practices of coexistence within the context of ethno-national conflict and its aftermath.This title was made Open Access by libraries from around the world through Knowledge Unlatched.

Abstract

For centuries, Africa’s Upper Guinea Coast region has been the site of regional and global interactions, with societies from different parts of the African continent and beyond engaging in economic trade, cultural exchange, and various forms of conflict. This book provides a wide-ranging look at how such encounters have continued into the present day, identifying the disruptions and continuities in religion, language, economics, and various other social phenomena that have resulted. These accounts show a region that, while still grappling with the legacies of colonialism and the slave trade, is both shaped by and an important actor within ever-denser global networks, exhibiting consistent transformation and creative adaptation.This title was made Open Access by libraries from around the world through Knowledge Unlatched.
