The Journal of Aging Studies features scholarly articles offering theoretically engaged interpretations that challenge existing theory and empirical work. Articles need not deal with the field of aging as a whole, but with any defensibly relevant topic pertinent to the aging experience and related to the broad concerns and subject matter of the social and behavioral sciences and the humanities. The journal emphasizes innovation and critique - new directions in general - regardless of theoretical or methodological orientation or academic discipline. Potential contributors are strongly advised to consult recent issues of the Journal for examples of articles that fit this mission.

Further information for authors. The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in both higher rates of submissions to JAS and much lower reviewer acceptance rates. In light of this, we ask two things of the community. First, patience with the longer lag time from submission to notification and reviewer comments. Second, if you submit a manuscript for consideration, then we hope you will do your part if asked to review for us in the future. Thank you for your understanding and help in ensuring the peer-review process continues as efficiently and robustly as possible in these trying times.
