There is growing awareness of the importance of population ageing in shaping the current and future society. Mainstream demographers, economists, biologists, sociologists, geographers and those from development and area studies and public health, are all entering the field of ageing research.
The Journal of Population Ageing (JPA) will provide a forum for international, cross-disciplinary debate on population ageing. Its focus will be on theoretical and empirical research and methodological innovation and development.
JPA will address the broad questions of ageing societies internationally, thereby stimulating discussion of North American, European, and Transitional and Developing World issues. This interdisciplinary journal seeks to publish high quality research of interest to professionals working in the fields of demography, bio-demography, development studies, area studies sociology, geography, history, social gerontology, economics, and social and health policy.
Starting with Volume 1 in 2008, this journal will be published in 4 issues of 60 pages each comprising of among others an editorial, original peer reviewed articles, book reviews and an abstract section.
