Elsevier Launches New Journal: The Journal of the Economics of Ageing
Oxford, November 7, 2012 – Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, is pleased to announce the launch of a new journal, The Journal of the Economics of Ageing (JEoA).
The Journal of the Economics of Ageing is an international academic journal that publishes original theoretical and empirical research on the interaction between demographic change and the economy. JEoA encompasses both microeconomic and macroeconomic perspectives and offers a platform for the discussion of topics including labour, health, and family economics, pensions and social security, income distribution, social mobility, migration, productivity, and economic growth and development. JEoA also solicits papers that have a policy focus.
The Journal of the Economics of Ageing will be edited by Prof. David E. Bloom (Harvard School of Public Health), Prof. Dr. Alfonso Sousa-Poza (University of Hohenheim) and Prof. Uwe Sunde (Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität Munich). The editors are supported by a distinguished board of associate editors that include leading economists in the field of the economics of ageing.
“The ageing of populations around the world will undoubtedly represent one of the major economic challenges in the coming decades and the need for solid academic work on the economics of ageing is growing. The importance of this field provides the opportunity to launch this new journal,” said Professor Sousa-Poza.
"The phenomenon of ageing populations has been on the research agenda in many academic fields for some time now. As a demographic and social phenomenon influencing wealth, health, economic development and sometimes government policy, it is affecting most economies,” Marc Chahin, Economics Publisher at Elsevier added. “With the launch of The Journal of the Economics of Ageing, Elsevier aims to stimulate and support research in this exciting and important new field by providing a unique and specialized outlet.”
The Journal of the Economics of Ageing will publish two issues in 2013, expanding to follow a regular quarterly schedule in the subsequent years. For more information or to submit a paper, go to: www.elsevier.com/locate/jeoa
