Population Horizons is a forum for analysis and debate on the many complex and contested policy questions that are raised by the prospect of population change. Our aim is to combine the reasoned exploration of differences of opinion about how society should adapt to the pressures of population change, with the methods and conclusions of evidence-based policy making. The journal publishes themed issues containing a mix of submitted manuscripts and commissioned articles, with a strong emphasis on reviews, commentaries, analytical papers and 'think pieces'.

Population Horizons is aimed at researchers, policy makers and practitioners who wish to engage in identifying and analysing the challenges and opportunities that are likely to result from a permanent shift in the age structure of the population. It intends intend to bring high quality research essential to evidence-based policy making, to the debate of how society should adapt to these many challenges. 

Population Horizons would like to invite contributions in line with its focus, as well as encouraging suggestions for themed editions. Those wishing to submit an article should contact
