Generations Review

Generations Review is the open access newsletter of the British Society of Gerontology, published online three times a year.

All back issues from are available on GR back issues 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.

The Editor of Generations Review, Charles Musselwhite, encourages submission of articles of any size and length from members of BSG and those with an interest in ageing and gerontology addressing any of the following:

  • Latest news and events.
  • Reports from events taken place.
  • A day in the life of a gerontology member.
  • Pen pictures/who’s who.
  • Current and recently completed research.
  • Book reviews and research report reviews
  • Tips and advice for new and emerging researchers
  • Relationship between theory, research and practice and applying research in the real world.
  • Stories and advice from older people themselves.

The emphasis is on generating discussion and debate and as such the Editor welcomes comments, suggestions and points of clarification from anyone in conjunction with articles published.

Please contact Charles Musselwhite ( with your ideas for inclusion in Generations Review.
