The Gerontological Society of America:
The Gerontological Society of America (GSA) — the country’s largest interdisciplinary organization devoted to the field of aging — has named Bob G. Knight, PhD, of the University of Southern California as the next editor of the Journal of Gerontology: Psychological Sciences, effective January 2012.
“We are very pleased to have Dr. Knight assume the position of editor,” said Thomas Hess, PhD, chair of GSA’s Publications Committee. “He is a well-respected gerontological researcher who has an appreciation for the diversity of both the approaches and topics associated with the study of psychological aspects of the aging process. I anticipate that he will continue building the reputation of the journal as the premier outlet for research in the field.”
The Journal of Gerontology: Psychological Sciences, published by Oxford Journals on behalf of GSA, contains peer-reviewed articles on the psychological aspects of aging in areas such as attitudes, clinical applications, cognition, education, emotion, health, human factors, interpersonal relations, neuropsychology, perception, personality, physiological psychology, social psychology, and sensation.
