Oxford University Press to launch new journal, Innovation in Aging

January 05, 2017

Oxford University Press (OUP) is pleased to announce its partnership with The Gerontological Society of America (GSA) to publish Innovation in Aging, a new peer-reviewed, open access interdisciplinary journal, beginning in January 2017.

Innovation in Aging joins a distinguished collection of titles in the GSA catalog, such as The Gerontologist and The Journals of Gerontology. The online-only, open access journal will publish conceptually sound, methodologically rigorous research studies that describe innovative theories, research methods, interventions, evaluations, and policies relevant to aging and the life course.

"In creating this journal, GSA is looking to the future -- both the future needs of the gerontology community and the future of research communication," says GSA Executive Director and CEO James Appleby. "The Society's mission to promote interdisciplinary research and disseminate knowledge is well supported by the open access format, which has been consistently shown to lead to increased readership for articles by a wider audience."

With content intended to reflect the diverse scholarly interests of GSA members, the journal will publish many types of articles, including interdisciplinary research that transfers concepts, methodologies, and interventions from other fields to studies of aging and the life course. Laura P. Sands, PhD, a faculty member of the Center for Gerontology and professor of human development at Virginia Technological Institute and State University, will serve as Editor-in-Chief.

OUP USA President Niko Pfund commented, "The study of aging has grown exponentially, both in terms of the number of researchers working in the field and in the remarkable diversity of research being conducted. Innovation in Aging will continue GSA's essential work of meeting the needs of the gerontology community, focusing with this journal on the broad range of interdisciplinary research, and the future possible directions of that research. OUP is proud to partner with GSA on this new endeavor."
