Mis compañeros Fermina Rojo, Gloria Fernandez-Mayoralas y Diego Sánchez han asumido la edición futura de un número especial del International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health, dedicado a los entornos residenciales amigables para las personas mayores. Me han pedido dar difusión a su convocatoria de trabajos relacionados, que podrán enviarse hasta el 15 de Octubre de 2022. Si te interesa participar con un artículo, este es el call con el que están pidiendo colaboraciones.
we are organizing a Special Issue on Friendly Residential Environments for Aging in Place with Autonomy and Independence invited by the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health (IJERPH) (Impact Factor: 2.849 in 2019). For detailed information on the journal, see https://www.mdpi.com/journal/ijerph . The Special Issue is currently open to submission (deadline 15 October 2022). It is important to notice that papers can now be submitted and will be published immediately once the review process is completed.
This issue welcomes theoretical and applied contributions related to the residential environment of older people, their characteristics, and its influence on autonomy, independence, and quality of life in the aging process, such as studies connected with aging in place, age-friendly cities and communities, the built environment in the active/healthy ageing, residential contexts (housing, long-term care settings, cohousing), residential social networks, residential services, and related topics, for older adults both with and without dementia. Theoretical approaches, literature reviews and methodological studies deserve a special mention, as well as the application of quantitative, qualitative, mixed and photovoice methodology, or the incorporation of new technologies to better understand the environmental dimensions of aging at home. In addition, new studies on the therapeutic importance of environments in aging are accepted, from the multidisciplinary approaches of epigenetic and environmental gerontology. Precisely, some of the responses to health emergencies (COVID-19 pandemic) and climate hazards (floods, heat waves) will come from a better understanding within aging environments.
All articles published in International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health (ISSN 1660-4601) are published in full open access. In order to provide free access to readers, and to cover the costs of peer review, copyediting, typesetting, long-term archiving, and journal management, an article processing charge (APC) of 2300 CHF (Swiss Francs) applies to papers accepted after peer review.
As an expert in this area, we kindly invite you to submit a paper to this special issue on a subject that reflect your current research in this domain.
