The Finnish Yearbook of Population Research is a peer reviewed, open access journal published by the Population Research Institute of the Family Federation of Finland (Väestöliitto) in collaboration with The Finnish Demographic Society and The Institute of Migration. The Yearbook, published since 1946, deals with a wide range of global demographic issues as well as current population trends in Finland, Scandinavia, the Baltic countries, and other parts of Europe. 

We invite you to contribute to the special theme issue of 2020 volume. The Yearbook publishes articles from different fields of population studies (fertility, mortality, migration, family and population structure), original articles as well as book reviews and commentaries.

The special theme for the 2020 volume is demographic and social inequality but all articles regarding the abovementioned fields of population studies are warmly welcome as well. Demographic and social inequality may be based on age, gender, health, social origin, education, income, wealth, migrant status or marital status, for example.

Original articles are peer-reviewed and decisions about publication are made by the editor and the scientific advisory board of the Yearbook. FYPR has implemented the label for peer-reviewed scholarly publications of the Federation of Finnish Learned Societies and is committed to follow the guidelines for the label.

If you are interested in publishing your manuscript in the next Yearbook, please submit your language revised article in English through the Journal submission system, see information for authors.

The papers should be complemented by an abstract of no more than 150 words. Further instructions to the author, see author guidelines.
