The Journal of Cross-Cultural Gerontology offers an international and interdisciplinary forum for discussion of the aging process and issues of the aged throughout the world. The journal emphasizes discussions of research findings, theoretical issues, and applied approaches and provides a comparative orientation to the study of aging in cultural contexts.

Coverage includes a broad range of articles exploring global aging, from such perspectives as history, anthropology, sociology, political science, psychology, population studies, and health. We welcome articles that examine aging within a particular cultural context, compare aging and older adults across societies, and/or compare sub-cultural groupings or ethnic minorities within or across larger societies. Comparative analyses of topics relating to older adults, such as aging within socialist vs. capitalist systems or within societies with different social service delivery systems, also are appropriate for this journal. As societies become ever more multicultural and experience an unprecedented ‘graying’ of their populations, the Journal of Cross-Cultural Gerontology stands at the forefront of one of the most pressing issues of our times.

  • COVID-19 and impact on peer review

    As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times.  Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.
