Announcing BSG in association with Policy Press: Journal of Global Ageing
The BSG are pleased to announce the launch of this exciting new journal published in association Policy Press. The Journal of Global Ageing is a transdisciplinary journal which is committed to advancing our understanding of the global processes of ageing.

The Journal of Global Ageing (JoGA) aims to create a space for the ageing research community around the world to communicate new ideas, findings, perspectives and research directions from all world regions. However, we invite authors to critically consider whether the nation-state is the natural social, cultural and/or political form in the modern world. Hence, we are particularly interested in publishing work arising from studies that reach beyond the nation-state and explore other geographies, such as the local/translocal/glocal, regional and global.

JoGA welcomes the submission of research and review articles, debates and brief reports. We seek to publish contributions that examine ageing and later life from all regions of the world. We welcome country- or culture-specific studies that do not necessarily include international comparisons as long as such contributions help us better understand ageing in a global context. Many of the issues facing older adults are ‘wicked problems’ that require inter/multidisciplinary approaches. This becomes even more apparent when we shift our lens from the nation-state to the global context, e.g. the impact of climate change on older adults. Hence, JoGA is open to submissions from the social sciences, humanities, development studies, environmental, natural, health, material and public health sciences. In particular, we are keen to encourage submissions from disciplines/fields that are currently under-represented in gerontology, e.g. environmental science, development theory, material science and design. JoGA does not privilege any theoretical perspective or methodological approach. However, all empirical papers must have robust methods. All published articles undergo a double-anonymous peer review process.

 Editorial team

The editorial team is led by Martin Hyde (Swansea University, UK) and includes Regional Liaisons and an Editorial College. See the full editorial board.
