How to publish in this journal


An internationally trusted source for clinically focused longevity and healthy ageing research and review The Lancet Healthy Longevity is a multi-disciplinary journal that publishes clinically focused longevity and healthy ageing research and review. Our broad research remit aims to encompass early-stage clinical research into the mechanisms of ageing at any stage of life through to epidemiological and societal research on changing populations, including clinical trials in all disciplines focused, but not exclusively, on older people, gerontological science, and age-specific clinical guidelines. We also publish clinical and policy reviews, which aim to shape and contextualise the debate on this fast-growing discipline. The Lancet Healthy Longevity continues in The Lancet Group’s tradition of being a strong advocate for the rights of all people to healthy, fulfilling lives, irrespective of age, and prioritises reports of original research that are likely to change clinical practice or thinking. Cassandra Coburn, Editor-in-Chief, further shares her ambitions for the journal. We publish a range of content types including Articles, Review, Comment, and Correspondence. We also publish Series that aim to shape and drive positive change in clinical practice and health policy in areas of need in longevity and healthy ageing Join the conversation about this journal
