Scope The Journal of Aging and Environment is an interdisciplinary forum for original empirical and theoretical research in environmental gerontology conducted in design disciplines (e.g., architecture, urban planning, landscape architecture, interior design), social and health sciences. We publish high quality research that provides empirical evidence and informs policy and practice in development of appropriate and suitable environments for older adults. This journal’s articles are useful for scholars, researchers, policymakers, design professionals, developers and the general public in understanding the interrelationship between older adults and the built and natural environments. We publish research on a range of settings including home environment, housing, neighbourhood, public spaces and healthcare settings. The journal covers: Original empirical research on environmental topics that primarily involve older adults; Theoretical research and critical or analytical reviews in aging and environment; Case studies of successful practitioner experiences on development of suitable environments for older people; Refinement of existing methods and/or development of new ones for evaluating the behavioral, programmatic and organizational aspects of environments; Translation of research findings into more usable informational modes for researchers, practitioners and policymakers.

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'. SJR is a measure of scientific influence of journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where such citations come from It measures the scientific influence of the average article in a journal, it expresses how central to the global scientific discussion an average article of the journal is.

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. The two years line is equivalent to journal impact factor ™ (Thomson Reuters) metric.
