AIMS & SCOPE
Under what conditions does "development" end? Under what conditions does
"aging" begin? Can these conditions themselves be modified by intervention
at the psychological, social, or biological levels? To what extent are
patterns of development and aging attributable to biological factors? To
psychological factors? How can the social and behavioral sciences contribute
to the actualization of human potential throughout the entire life span?
What are the implications of gerontological research for our understanding
of the total development of human organism?
These are some of the broad questions with which the International
Journal of Aging and Human Development is concerned. Emphasis is upon
psychological and social studies of aging and the aged. However, the Journal
also publishes research that introduces observations from other fields
that illuminate the "human" side of gerontology, or utilizes gerontological
observations to illuminate in other fields.
