European Journal of Population

The European Journal of Population addresses a broad public of researchers, policy makers and others concerned with population processes and their consequences. Its aim is to improve understanding of population phenomena by giving priority to work that contributes to the development of theory and method, and that spans the boundaries between demography and such disciplines as sociology, anthropology, economics, geography, history, political science, epidemiology and other sciences contributing to public health.

The Journal is open to authors from all over the world, and its articles cover European and non-European countries (specifically including developing countries) alike.

The European Journal of Population is published under the auspices of EAPS by Springer Nature Publishers.

EAPS is proud that its flagship Journal is fully open access! This new status makes it even more
attractive to submit to our Journal. In addition to full Open Access, we are also proud that, in a joint effort with Springer Nature Publishers, EJP guarantees Equal Access Opportunities to ALL potential authors! Read more here
