Aims and Scope

Quality in Ageing and Older Adults (QAOA) publishes international, peer-reviewed content that makes sense of current research and policy in working with older people at a key time of demographic change.

The journal particularly considers the implications of research and policy in the context of researching, managing and commissioning services for older people. 
QAOA draws out practical information about how to promote quality of life in later years as well as offering current guidance on appropriate service provision and delivery. 
Content provides a multidisciplinary perspective on ageing and considers the role of older people within their wider communities and society with the overall goals of promoting the potential for independence, control and enhanced well-being. The journal is relevant to the broad range of researchers and professionals involved in the study of ageing and delivering services to older people.
