The Journal of Aging and Social Change

The Journal of Aging and Social Change provides an international forum for the discussion of a rapidly growing segment of the population, in developed countries as well as in developing countries. Contributions range from broad theoretical and global policy explorations to detailed studies of the specific human physiological, health, economic, and social dynamics of aging in today’s global society. The journal is a focal point for interdisciplinary research involving psychology, neuroscience, economics, sociology, anthropology, demography, nursing, biology, medicine, public health, epidemiology, gerontology, pharmacology, dentistry, health behavior and health education, “third age” education, management, marketing, and communications. Articles cover a range from big picture questions of public policy to the fine detail of research and practice-based discussion. The Journal of Aging and Social Change is peer-reviewed, supported by rigorous processes of criterion-referenced article ranking and qualitative commentary, ensuring that only intellectual work of the greatest substance and highest significance is published.
