The Journal focuses on those aspects relating to population ageing in developing countries, including biological, psychological, economic, social, political, medical, historical and spiritual dimensions. It includes five objectives namely:
drawing experts from various disciplines related to this ageing phenomenon, and provide an international, peer-reviewed platform for their work;
offering a voice to researchers in developing countries, enabling them to transmit their findings to a broad number of readers;
facilitating rapid, international dissemination of ground breaking work in the area, via pre-publication access;
reviewing books of gerontological and geriatric concern;
being an openly accessible forum to maximize readership and discussion, and hence, the journal’s ability to transmit work in the area to the stakeholders that need it most.
