The interdisciplinary European Journal of Ageing: Social, Behavioural and Health Perspectives (EJA) is devoted to the understanding of ageing around the world. Coverage includes original articles on the social, behavioral and population health aspects of ageing, encouraging an integrated approach among these aspects. The editors emphasize empirical research, including meta-analyses, but also consider conceptual papers, including narrative reviews, and methodological contributions. By stimulating communication between researchers and those using research findings, EJA aims to contribute to the formulation of better policies and the development of better practice in serving older adults.
