Call for Submissions: Anthropology & Aging Quarterly | The Official Journal of the Association of Anthropology and Gerontology
Anthropology & Aging Quarterly is the official publication of the Association for Anthropology & Gerontology (AAGE). It is published quarterly (February, May, August, November) by AAGE. AAGE is a nonprofit organization established in 1978 as a multidisciplinary group dedicated to the exploration and understanding of aging within and across the diversity of human cultures. Our perspective is holistic, comparative, and international. Our members come from a variety of academic and applied fields, including the social and biological sciences, nursing, medicine, policy studies, social work, and service provision. We provide a supportive environment for the professional growth of students and colleagues, contributing to a greater understanding of the aging process and the lives of older persons across the globe.
Submission Process: Anthropology & Aging Quarterly accepts four types of submissions— Research Reports, Policy and News Reviews, Commentaries, and Articles. These may be submitted individually or in coordination with others for a special topic issue. Research Reports are brief discussions of ongoing or recently completed study and should be no longer than 2,000 words. Policy and News Reviews are pieces which offer thoughtful and reflective discussion of current events or social policies pertaining to aging and culture. Commentaries provide authors with an opportunity to discuss theoretical, ethical and other time-sensitive topical issues which do not lend themselves to a full-length article. Commentaries may also be used as a venue to share self-reflexive writing on the experience of aging or conducting research in this field. Policy and News Reviews or Commentaries may range from 1,000 to 4,500 words. Articles are longer reports on recently completed research or literature reviews. Articles should include the following: a cover page with the author’s full name, affiliation, mailing address, and manuscript title; a 200 word abstract ; the text ; references cited ; and tables or figures. Endnotes are permitted but should be used sparingly and with justification. Articles should not exceed 6,500 words, including all materials.
Manuscript Submissions: All manuscripts, including suggestions for special issues, should be submitted via e-mail to the Editor of AAQ, Dr. Jason Danely ( firstname.lastname@example.org ). All manuscripts should use the citation style outlined by the American Anthropological Association. Evaluation Research Reports, Policy and News Reviews, and Articles are peer reviewed and will be evaluated by the Editor and a combination of Editorial Board members and referees. Every effort will be made to expedite the review process. Authors should anticipate a waiting time of six to twelve weeks.
