Ageing International is a quarterly, peer-reviewed journal dedicated to improving the quality of life of ageing populations worldwide. The Journal provides an intellectual forum for communicating common concerns, exchanging discoveries and analyses in scientific research, and crystallizing significant social and health policy issues. It broadly welcomes papers that:

  • Examine and evaluate the well-being of ageing populations
  • Focus on improving the quality of life for older individuals in both regional and global contexts
  • Offer recommendations in age-related service delivery and policy making

The Journal seeks to bring together researchers, policy analysts, and service program administrators who are committed to reducing the implementation gap between good science and effective service, between evidence-based protocol and culturally suitable programs, and between innovative solutions and generalizable policies.

  • 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.
