Call for papers on Population Aging and Challenges in Asia

With support from colleagues around the world, we launched the a couple of issue of International Journal of Population Studies (IJPS) so far. We would like launch a special issue related to population aging and challenges in Asia.

Asia is the most populous continent in the world with great diversities in population growth and socioeconomic development. Many Asian countries have been witnessing or will witness a faster pace of population aging than most today's developed countries; and most of them will likely grow old before they grow rich. However, the poor health care system, inadequate pension coverage, relatively low life expectancy, unhealthy practice (e.g., high tobacco use), and poor living environments will impose tremendous challenges for Asian countries.

This special issue will focus on, but not limited to, the following topics:

(1) Growth of population aging

(2) Mortality at old ages

(3) Changes of family support system

(4) Successful aging

(5) Aging-friendly city

(6) Social mobility and health/mortality

(7) Urbanization, climate change, and health

(8) Economics of aging

(9) Population aging and healthcare challenges

 We especially welcome multi-culture or cross-nation comparative studies.

IJPS is an open access, multidisciplinary journal that aims to publish high quality original research and reviews of recent advances and emerging issues in population processes, including dynamics of fertility, mortality, and migration, and linkages with socioeconomic and environmental change across time, space, and cultures.

The journal is committed to rapid and high-quality refereeing for all research that is submitted to the journal. We would like to encourage researchers from different countries to consider IJPS as a venue to present your research, and encourage researchers to keep the open access spirit by sharing with IJPS readers all necessary information to replicate and reproduce their research.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been previously published, nor be currently under consideration for publication elsewhere. All papers are refereed through a double-blind, rigorous peer review process. All manuscripts must be written in English. Before you start to prepare your paper, please read the Author Guidelines. All papers must be submitted online. To submit a paper, please go to the Online Submission System. Publication fees can be waived. No publication fee is needed if the primary author is from the low income countries.

The submission is already open and will be closed on September 30. If the accepted papers are more than what can be included in a single issue, we will run multiple issues for this special theme. In addition to this special call for papers, we also welcome other regular submissions.

Thank you for your attention and we look forward to your submissions,

The IJPS Editorial Office
