Aims and scope
Women’s Midlife Health is an open access, peer-reviewed journal that considers original and review articles focused on the physical and mental health of women during midlife, including articles on aging, reproductive aging and their inter-relationship. The journal focuses on research that provides new insights into the health transitions that occur during midlife, welcoming research that examines the vulnerabilities and opportunities during this life stage and their consequences for healthy aging.
Women's Midlife Health aims to enhance understanding of the bi-directional relationships between changes in reproductive endocrinology and functioning, physical and mental health during midlife. It contributes to clinical and public health knowledge about common underling mechanisms of disease and functional decline and encourages submissions of translational research that may enhance opportunities for healthy aging.
The journal considers clinical and population-based research on health in the mid-life and its determinants and welcomes papers that provide international perspectives or data on the health of midlife women in low and middle income countries. Papers that consider the impact of the environment, occupation, and behavioural or social factors on health and disease processes during this lifestage are encouraged.
