Aims and scope
GENUS is an interdisciplinary, peer-reviewed, open-access journal of population sciences. Founded in 1934 by Corrado Gini, GENUS is among the oldest demography journals in Europe. GENUS publishes articles on topics that include, but are not limited to: family and fertility; ageing; health and mortality; migration and mobility; formal demography; historical demography; relations between population dynamics and biological, environmental, economic, and social change. Former Directors have been: Nora Federici (1965-1992), Antonio Golini (1993-2008), Graziella Caselli (2009-2010), and Viviana Egidi (2011-2018). GENUS is affiliated with Sapienza University of Rome and published under the auspices of the Italian Association for Population Studies (AISP).
Starting from 2019 through 2024, Sapienza University is fully sponsoring a number of articles. Authors with no open access funding at their institution can request that the article processing charge (APC) is paid via Sapienza University, and they need to contact firstname.lastname@example.org before submitting their manuscripts.
