Distinguished Professor and Editor-in-Chief Eva Kahana at Case Western University has advised us of the the most recent "call for papers" for her Journal of Elder Policy. As most of us who work in law and aging recognize, our field is inherently cross-disciplinary and that is why it is so nice to hear from the sociology field when it is seeking new articles. The focus for the upcoming issue is Technology: An Underutilized Late-Life Resource.
The journal, which is peer reviewed, is seeking papers that address policy challenges and implications related to technology use and older adults. They welcome both empirical and conceptual papers from diverse disciplines and have a preference for pieces that employ policy approaches.
Topics may include but are not limited to:
- Internet use/access
- Digital exclusion/inclusiveness
- Interventions using digital platforms
- Intergenerational learning
- E-Health Literacy
- Cultural influences on technology use in later life
- Digital monitoring of frail older adults
- Digital data collection
Now the important part:
