Aging and Public Health aims to advance the scientific basis of knowledge and action to improve the health and quality of life for the older adult populations. Our intention is to further the aging and public health field by adding to the knowledge base about the needs of an aging population and most effective strategies to promote health for older adults.
Aging and Public Health aims to advance the scientific basis of knowledge and action to: (1) improve the health and quality of life for older adult populations; and (2) enhance the research, practice, and policy related to aging. This new Section in the suite of Frontiers in Public Health offerings is based on the premise that older adult health is fundamental to the health of a population, and the continued sharing of research and practice endeavors is essential to influence the professional workforce and establish an effective public health system within and across nations. In the context of global aging, the goal of Aging and Public Health is to further the aging and public health field by adding to the knowledge base about the: (1) needs of an aging population; and (2) most effective strategies to promote health for older adults.
We call for innovative research, practice, or policy solutions that can help older adults make better personal health choices, health professionals and community service providers more effectively engage in evidence-based action, and societies enhance programmatic efforts and policy initiatives to promote population health and successful aging.
The Aging and Public Health section focuses on furthering a global understanding of the factors associated with, and multi-level interventions for, healthy aging. This section will consider a wide range of conceptual and research-based articles focusing on the interrelation among aging, health, and contextual factors. Submissions can focus on older populations, or take a life-course approach to examine predictors and interventions at different life stages. Aging and Public Health is especially interested in promoting successful interventions for older adults and understanding the role of social, behavioral, technological, and environmental factors associated with promoting healthy aging among underserved and vulnerable populations.
To ensure breadth of perspective and global applicability, Aging and Public Health will also seek to represent all geographic regions, with Associate Editors, Review Editors, and authors representing North America, South America, Europe, Africa, Australia, and Asia.

Aging and Public Health welcomes submissions of the following article types: Brief Research Report, Correction, Data Report, Editorial, General Commentary, Hypothesis and Theory, Methods, Mini Review, Opinion, Original Research, Perspective, Policy and Practice Reviews, Policy Brief, Review, Specialty Grand Challenge and Systematic Review.
All manuscripts must be submitted directly to the section Aging and Public Health, where they are peer-reviewed by the Associate and Review Editors of the specialty section.
Articles published in the section Aging and Public Health will benefit from the Frontiers impact and tiering system after online publication. Authors of published original research with the highest impact, as judged democratically by the readers, will be invited by the Chief Editor to write a Frontiers Focused Review - a tier-climbing article. This is referred to as "democratic tiering". The author selection is based on article impact analytics of original research published in all Frontiers specialty journals and sections. Focused Reviews are centered on the original discovery, place it into a broader context, and aim to address the wider community across all of Public Health.
