The International Journal of Aging and Human Development places emphasis upon psychological and social studies of aging and the aged. However, the Journal also publishes research that introduces observations from other fields that illuminate the "human" side of gerontology, or utilizes gerontological observations to illuminate in other fields.

This journal is a member of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE).

Under what conditions does "development" end? Under what conditions does "aging" begin? Can these conditions themselves be modified by intervention at the psychological, social, or biological levels? To what extent are patterns of development and aging attributable to biological factors? To psychological factors? How can the social and behavioral sciences contribute to the actualization of human potential throughout the entire life span? What are the implications of gerontological research for our understanding of the total development of human organism?

These are some of the broad questions with which the International Journal of Aging and Human Development is concerned. Emphasis is upon psychological and social studies of aging and the aged. However, the Journal also publishes research that introduces observations from other fields that illuminate the "human" side of gerontology, or utilizes gerontological observations to illuminate in other fields.

        All papers submitted to IJAHD are reviewed with respect to their scholarly merit and the extent to which they advance valid knowledge about human development and aging across a variety of disciplinary perspectives within the social sciences (e.g. psychology, sociology, anthropology, and economics). Interdisciplinary perspectives are strongly encouraged and preference is given to papers that make a new and notable contribution. Such contributions may include —an idea, a discovery, a methodology, or a connection between basic and applied developmental science of aging. Preference is also given to papers that are deemed to be of general theoretical significance. Although expository and review papers will be considered if they contain a strong scientific focus, the primary purpose of IJAHD is to publish methodologically sound, empirical studies that advance the theoretical and applied knowledge base of human development and aging. We also invite proposals for ‘special issues’ that fit with the aims and scope of IJAHD.
