About the Journal

Public Policy & Aging Report , published quarterly, explores policy issues generated by the aging of American society. Edited by Boston University policy expert Robert B. Hudson, each thematic issue is designed to stimulate debate, highlight emerging concerns, and propose alternative policy options. Recent issues have addressed: legal and policy issues associated with end-of-life care; technology and aging; income security among older populations of color; Medicare reform; and elder abuse and neglect.

The audience consists of decision-makers in the public and private sectors, advisors and staff to those decision-makers, program administrators, researchers, students, and the interested public. Articles in each issue are informed, to the point, and provocative. Authors are drawn from the leadership ranks of the policy, practice, and research communities. In the Report , these authors are afforded the opportunity to engage readers in a more timely and pressing manner than is afforded through most other publication formats.
