African Journal of Ageing Studies (AJAS) is a peer reviewed multidisciplinary journal, which will be launched in 2023 to provide new perspectives on the challenges of ageing, healthy ageing and increased life expectancy, aged policy dynamics, and quality of life. The editors believe that ageing is a process that affects humanity. It has become increasingly essential and must include improving the quality of life and the well-being of older adults. It should embrace the choices and opportunities that are available to older people.
This Journal seeks to encourage researchers and/or authors to think about keeping up to date in their respective fields and continue to integrate knowledge, research, both in terms of content and process particularly from multidisciplinary dimensions. Ageing and ageing care needs, preferences, strategies, and policy dynamics cut across economic, social, political, and psychological issues and spectrums.
The Journal will publish original works related to ageing that expand concepts, measurement tools and policy alternatives. It will provide a platform for an open exchange of ideas among a wide range of scholars, policy makers, economists, researchers, academics, and other experts in the field of ageing.
The Journal is also interested in: 1) Short Reports – 2-5 page papers where an author can present either preliminary data or an idea with theoretical background but has not yet completed the research needed for a complete paper; 2) Book Reviews – Comments and critiques.
The African Journal of Ageing Studies will provide a platform for alternative ageing approaches and the Journal will act as a channel for members and critics of this school. It will emphasize originality on African perspectives on ageing and future directions in Research, Practice, and Policy, which would in turn necessitate the direction of future change in the issues of ageing at large.
