We are pleased to announce the Special Issue entitled, “Change and Continuity in Ageing – The Selected Papers from the 26th Nordic Congress of Gerontology (NKG)”, to be published in JAL.
This will be a collection of high-quality papers (original research articles or comprehensive review papers) published in open access form by Editorial Board Members, or prominent scholars invited by the Editorial Office and the section Editor-in-Chief.
Life is about change and continuity. Our experience of ourselves and our surroundings continuously evolve throughout life. For most people, later life is often characterized by major transitions, moving towards frailty and multiple losses—but it may also be a part of life when one has more time to engage in preferred activities, explore new possibilities, and to come to terms and cope with new challenges. The COVID-19 pandemic proved to be a challenge to the world, particularly to frail and vulnerable people and societies. However, it has also given us valuable new insights and reminded us of the values in life.
This Special Issue aims at exploring questions regarding change and continuity through the perspective of ageing and later life by presenting new cutting-edge knowledge from selected works within the areas of: i) digitization and technology; ii) housing, generations and mobility; iii) lifestyle, engagement and transition; iv) education and competences in ageing societies; v) morbidity, medical treatment and ageing processes; and vi) a good life and a good death.
This Special Issue will be ideal for disseminating research findings, sharing innovative ideas within the field, and making an important contribution to the community.
We invite either research papers with a detailed summary or papers highlighting the state-of-the-art developments in one of the mentioned areas that were presented as keynote, poster, oral or symposium presentations at the 26NKG. Contributions to this important Special Issue will thus be accepted by invitation only.
You are welcome to send a tentative title and a short abstract to our Editorial Office (firstname.lastname@example.org) for evaluation before submission. Please note that selected full papers will still be subjected to a thorough and rigorous peer-review.
We are looking forward to receiving your excellent work.
