Aim and Scope

The Gerontologist®, published since 1961, is a journal of The Gerontological Society of America that publishes applied, multidisciplinary research and analysis on social issues related to human aging. It informs the broad community of disciplines and professions involved in understanding the aging process and providing care to older people. The Gerontologist encourages manuscript submissions of various types: research articles, review articles, measurement articles, and forums. Book and media reviews, International Spotlights, and award-winning lectures are commissioned by the editors.

The Gerontologist recognizes that aging represents a kaleidoscope of experience, and that older adulthood intersects with diverse lifelong and acquired identities.  We aspire to represent the wealth and breadth of aging experience in the scholarship we publish and recognize that systems of inequity and bias have diminished such representation in this journal. We encourage cutting-edge, conceptual work that addresses inequity in health, mental health, social status, and justice in late life, particularly those well-documented inequities arising from age, socio-economic status, racial, ethnic, sex, and gender bias and discrimination, and intersections among them.  We further commit to building and maintaining a diverse author, reviewer, and editorial base that will nurture this scholarship in the years to come.
