Anthropology & Aging published by the Association for Anthropology & Gerontology (AAGE) in cooperation with the University of Pittsburgh, is now an open-access peer-reviewed scholarly journal. We welcome submissions on a rolling basis through the journal website, where detailed author information is available.
Issues are published twice per year (May and November). Original articles suitable for scholarly peer review (5,000-9,000 words) should broaden our understanding of sociocultural and/or biophysical aspects of aging using anthropological perspectives, methodologies, or theoretical frameworks. Submissions from non-anthropologists, students, or international scholars are welcome as long as the submission clearly deals with both anthropology and aging in a substantial way. We also encourage submissions of Research Reports, Policy and News Reviews, or Commentaries (2,000-5,000 words) which are evaluated by our editorial advisory board. Form and style is flexible. We welcome group submissions (3-5 articles/reports) on a focused topic or region, as well as proposals for special issues (8+ articles/reports).
Anthropology & Aging is intended as a resource for anthropologists interested in issues related to aging (including intergenerational relationships, caregiving, population aging, human rights, and global health) and aging studies scholars interested in anthropology. Submissions that employ cross-disciplinary approaches and novel methodological strategies are particularly encouraged, but standard anthropological styles are also acceptable.
