Abstract

In this review paper, we refresh and update our earlier ranking list based on citations in the field of migration studies. The results are categorised and presented separately for the books and reports, articles and book chapters and for authors of these works. In this latest elaboration, we have presented the updated version of the most linfluential works of all times list, but we have focused on the five years period from 2011 to 2016. 2011 is taken as a starting year and 2012 to 2016 covers the last five years. The resulting ranking lists from now on are to be presented for five year periods to be in line with most impact factor calculations available. Using the Google Scholar citation database and Ann Harzing ranking software, we have created ranking lists of the most cited articles, books and authors in migration studies.
