The Journal of Intergenerational Relationships (JIR) is the forum for scholars, practitioners, policy makers, educators, and advocates to stay abreast of the latest intergenerational research, practice methods and policy initiatives. This is the only journal focusing on the intergenerational field integrating practical, theoretical, empirical, familial, and policy perspectives.
JIR publishes papers and articles whose content addresses intergenerational relationships evidenced in intergenerational practice, policy and research.
Typically the intergenerational relationships that are the focus of JIR papers and articles reflect ongoing interaction among multiple or skipped generations with a generation representing approximately 20 years. Intergenerational relationships occur in familial and non familial settings and involve interaction that demonstrates positive and negative interactions.
