Submission received: 25 October 2023 / Accepted: 30 October 2023 / Published: 22 November 2023
We are happy that the Journal of Ageing and Longevity has now entered its third year, publishing notable papers covering the wide field encompassed by its title. We remain committed to an open and robust peer review process to ensure that the papers we publish are of the highest quality, advancing our understanding of ageing. However, we believe it is now time to look back on these publications and review the subjects listed in the scope to ensure they remain most appropriate and up-to-date. Considering the published papers and the developments in relevant research areas over the past few years, we concluded that the subjects mentioned in the scope are largely appropriate and up-to-date, but some minor amendments could be profitably made. The basic scope remains appropriate, but the listed topics have been updated and broadened as indicated in Table 1:
With this update, we want to encourage the submission papers in these fields to further the progress and acceptance of the journal in the community.
