Population Research and Policy Review (PRPR) provides a broad, interdisciplinary coverage of population research, and offers an up to date and solid basis of information on the policy implications of recent research relevant to the causes and consequences of changing population size and composition. PRPR is the only demography journal that publishes work using ethnographic methods, comparative-historical methods, discourse analysis, and others.

Coverage includes demographic, economic, social, political and health research papers and related contributions which are based on either the direct scientific evaluation of particular policies or programs, or general contributions to advance knowledge that informs policy and program development. The journal publishes top quality material of interest to professionals working in the fields of population, and those fields which intersect and overlap with population studies.

Published six times a year, Population Research and Policy Review is the flagship journal of the Southern Demographic Association (SDA).

  • 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.
