Call for Guest Editors and Special Issues on Population Dynamics and Challenges in Asia


We would like to launch a series of special issues related to population dynamics 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 urbanization, 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, poor nutrition, poor facilities and infrastructure, and poor living environments, will impose tremendous challenges for Asian countries. In order to provide some scholarly thoughts for helping to adequately address these challenges, the International Journal of Population Studies wishes to launch for a series of special issues. These special issues will focus on, but not limited to, the following themes:

(1) Population dynamics

(2) Data quality in population and health surveys

(3) Changes of family support system

(4) Successful aging

(5) Aging-friendly city

(6) Pension system reforms

(7) Urbanization, climate change, and health

(8) Economics of aging

(9) Population aging and healthcare challenges

(10) Reproductive health

(11) Child nutrition, health and development

(12) Gender equity and women’s empowerment

(13) Labor force migration in Asian countries and consequences

(14) Youth and development

(15) Low fertility and socioeconomic development

(16) Population growth and sustainable development goals

(17) Dynamics and projections of family household

(18) Business of aging

(19) Marriage matching

(20) Vulnerable populations

If any researcher is interested in taking the lead of a special issue or wishes to propose a new special issue, please send your request to for more information. We especially welcome multi-culture or cross-nation comparative studies.
