Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Does anyone have an idea in what journals academic papers analysing refugee flows would be published? Might save me some time if I had a better idea where to look.

First, "journals academic papers" are secondary sources. Which means that the authors' data selections from primary source datasets may or may not be complete or accurate. Data and semantic clearing requires work by the reader. Always read the footnotes.

So. Seek to primary sources, for example:

  1. UNDP, UNGMD, or Eurostat. These organizations publish annual and quarterly reporting period estimates by country of ORIGIN/DESTINATION online + 1-2 year compilation lag. Figures are never headcounts and will be adjusted over time to refine population accuracy, eg. YE 2016 gross estimate published YE 2017. Additionally, one can usually find preliminary analytical papers by employees and academics by subject matter ('detail') by reporting period at the websites. Some are for sale, some are free.
  2. Each nation-state statistical office. In this case you might find status demographic info, eg. "refugee" by pending claim, "refugee" by closed case, "migrant" by local statutory term of residence.

My first reaction was the need to be more specific in your question. Is it especially the refugees flow into the EU during the last five years? Also one can differentiate in the cause of refugees: war, famine, overpopulation, poverty or due to religious or gender issues.

Do you want refugees seeking asylum or do you need analysis of migrant flow between nations or continents. There are so many issues.

Sorry for the drive by yesterday. What I was thinking of were mostly secondary studies on the line of: Can you trace refugee numbers to draughts? To small arms sales?
Since there are quite a few tools to study these kinds of questions I'd assume someone was already doing it.

OK, so I finally started Archaeology of Knowledge (Now I see "corn" everywhere.) and remembered something else.

iirc, Germany has been the preferred destination (after only USA) of 'migrants' and immigrants (by quantity) worldwide for more than four decades: so no surprise here.
