The Academy for Gerontology in Higher Education (AGHE), the educational unit of The Gerontological Society of America, has chosen Gerontology & Geriatrics Education® as its official journal. With Volume 26, this quarterly journal joined forces with AGHE to improve awareness of best practices and resources for gerontologists and gerontology and geriatrics educators.

Some AGHE members joined the journal’s already distinguished editorial board. Editor-in-Chief Dr. Judith L. Howe's leadership provides superior exploration and discussion of research results, observations, evaluations, theoretical discussions, and recommendations related to gerontology and geriatric course work, practice placements, and curriculum design and implementation. AGHE and the journal work together to serve the needs of those who educate, train, or work with older adults and their caregivers. AGHE encourages academic institutions and individuals to subscribe to this important journal.

In 2018, members of AGHE get a discounted individual online subscription rate which can be obtained through Taylor & Francis Group's Customer Service department (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.).

Beginning with Volume 26 of Gerontology & Geriatrics Education, the AGHE Awards Committee makes a decision as to who will receive a “Best Paper of the Volume” award.  Designated as the David A. Peterson Award, the author of the year's most outstanding paper receives $250 and an accompanying certificate. There is also a  paper which receives an Honorable Mention. Click for further information on this award and the most recent awardee.
