Description

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.
