Generations Review is an open access, quarterly newsletter of the British Society of Gerontology, published on-line in January, April, July and October. All back issues from 2007 are available on the 'GR issues 2007 to present' page.
Generations Review provides a dynamic forum for sharing ideas, good practice, policy developments and research between BSG members at all stages of their ‘ageing’ career. It aims to enable all BSG members to engage with and discuss current developments in the field of ageing and to promote our shared aim of improving the lives of older people through our contributions to research, practice, policy and education.
To reflect the diverse areas of research, policy and practice represented by BSG members, Generations Review is divided into the following sections:
News and Reviews: News and views from BSG members that includes:
• up-to-date news of members
• BSG news
• reports from conferences and other events
• reports on policy developments and changing practice
• reviews of books, research reports and innovative practice/policy developments
What’s On: Advertisements of future events, conferences and seminars etc. of interest to BSG members.
Who's Who: A BSG member, an ageing organisation and/or research centre is profiled every issue.
Cutting Edge: A forum to present up-to-date research and methodological developments in ageing research. This includes:
• presentations of research findings
• current research being undertaken by BSG members
• postgraduate research
• abstracts of recently completed PhDs
• key developments in policy and practice in the area of ageing
Learning Zone: A forum to discuss developments in teaching and learning in ageing and social gerontology and to explore how membership of the BSG can promote and support members at all stages of their career.
The World At Large: A forum to share developments in other parts of the world, for example, new Centres for Ageing Studies, national strategies on older people, descriptions of ageing issues specific to other countries or country/region-specific ageing research.
Voices of Experience: A forum that permits older people or carers to share stories about the meanings of, for example, ageing and older age, daily life in older age, caring, intergenerational relationships, and so forth.
