Ageing and Gerontology

An ageing global population poses urgent challenges to society that we need to raise awareness about and find solutions to. Our titles on our Ageing and Gerontology list, such as The Short Guide to Ageing and Gerontology, What Death Means Now and The New Age of Ageing, are at the forefront of these important discussions and we want to ensure that invaluable research is made accessible.

We are seeking to publish broad research that fills a clear gap in the current literature, pushing forward knowledge and re-framing perspectives. We are particularly interested in international and comparative works for our established Ageing in a Global Context series.  If you are interested in writing for us, please see the Commissioning Editor information below.

Meet the Editor

Laura Vickers-Rendall, Commissioning Editor

I’ve been at Policy Press for eight years, starting as a graduate in Sociology (I used a number of Policy Press titles throughout my degree). I have had several roles in the commissioning team on the majority of the core Policy Press subject areas over the years.

I enjoy meeting existing and potential authors and talking through their research. Building those relationships over the period of time from inception of a potential book idea to publication is especially enjoyable. It is really rewarding to be able to produce books that authors and editors are proud of.
