Practitioners and researchers in the field of aging have long relied on Generations to provide them with in-depth research, practical applications, and valuable insight into the lives of older adults and those who work with them. Each issue features several articles on a single topic, guest-edited by one or more recognized experts in the subject area, and includes contributions from a range of practitioners, researchers, policymakers and elders. Authoritative and comprehensive, Generations offers a wide range of perspectives on relevant and timely topics in aging. This is what makes Generations an ideal resource for professionals, academics and anyone interested in aging.
