MICHIGAN CENTER ON THE DEMOGRAPHY OF AGINGThe TRENDS Network at the University of Michigan seeks manuscripts on the topic of dementia and population health trends for an upcoming Supplemental Issue in the Medical Sciences section of the Journal of Gerontology: Series A. We are interested in research from a broad array of scientific disciplines including those within public health, the social sciences, and the clinical sciences.

Several priority areas have been identified:

  1. Leveraging of national health surveys (e.g., HRS, NHATS) or large-scale electronic health records/medical claims to understand trends in dementia or dementia care in the United States
  2. International comparisons of dementia or dementia care trends
  3. COVID-19 and dementia or dementia care trends
  4. Interrelations between changing family demography and future care for older adults with dementia.

The deadline for manuscripts is October 1, 2023. Authors will submit their manuscript through the Journal’s ScholarOne submission website. Submission of a manuscript does not guarantee the manuscript will be accepted for publication. Authors wishing to validate interest in a manuscript for this Special Issue may email a title and abstract to the Guest Editor, Neil Mehta (nemehta@utmb.edu) directly.  Questions can also be directed to Neil Mehta.

Authors are advised to carefully read and follow formatting directions detailed in the Author Guidelines for the Medical Sciences section of The Journals of Gerontology, Series A. When selecting manuscript type, select Supplement Article.
