How to publish in this journal


The International Journal of Ageing and Later Life (IJAL) serves an audience interested in social and cultural aspects of ageing and later life development. As such, the Journal welcomes contributions that aim at advancing the conceptual and theoretical debates of relevance on ageing and later life research. Contributions based on empirical work as well as methodologically interested discussions are also welcome, as long as they contribute to the above-mentioned discussions. Being an international journal, IJAL acknowledges the need to understand the cultural diversity and context dependency of ageing and later life. The journal accepts country- or cultural-specific studies that do not necessarily include international comparisons as long as such contributions are interesting and understandable for an international audience. IJAL publishes articles based on original research and includes a book review section, which ensures that readers are kept in touch with new work and current debate. The books listed in“Books received” are those sent to the Journal by publishers. Authors of review papers are encouraged to contact the Book Review Editor before submission. IJAL uses a double blind review process. Submitted manuscripts are read by the editors to judge if they fit IJAL's Aims and Scope, before they are sent to at least two independent reviewers. In order to stimulate exchange of ideas on ageing across many parts of the world, IJAL does not charge authors for their submissions and has been available free of charge to anyone with Internet access since 2006.

The SJR is a size-independent prestige indicator that ranks journals by their 'average prestige per article'. It is based on the idea that 'all citations are not created equal'.

Citations per document

This indicator counts the number of citations received by documents from a journal and divides them by the total number of documents published in that journal. The chart shows the evolution of the average number of times documents published in a journal in the past two, three and four years have been cited in the current year.
