Gerontechnology has a clear-cut commitment to tuning the balance between aging, technology and the emerging knowledge-based society. The aim of this peer-reviewed journal is to provide a forum for reporting original research, review papers, and personal perspectives on the broad area of fitting technological environments to support changing life goals and lifestyle preferences into advanced age.
The gerontechnology domain is interdisciplinary in nature. In addition to technology, Gerontechnology includes the fields of gerontology and geriatrics: biology and physiology, psychology and social psychology, sociology and demography, medicine and rehabilitation, etc. Related technology includes chemistry and biochemistry, architecture and building, communication and information, mechatronics and robotics, design and ergonomics, and business management. This interdisciplinary nature is also the unique feature of the journal.
Research outcomes reported in the journal form the basis - for designers, architects, standards developers, builders, engineers, marketers, manufacturers, medical doctors, pharmacists, decision makers, and related professionals in the health, social, business and technology professions - to provide the proper environment for the greatest number of people in society.
Gerontechnology published one volume with four issues per year in both copy print and online publication. For online publication, the journal uses delayed open access for all contributions (embargo of 12 months or 4 issues) and immediate open access on demand.
