Gerontology Contacts

Springer Publishing Company is a pioneer in gerontology publishing, entering this niche in the 1960s, when gerontology was a growing discipline. During that decade, we published more gerontology titles than any other publisher, establishing ourselves as a leader in the field. Our gerontology selection ranges from certification and exam review guides, to award-winning books exploring aging from a multitude of perspectives, including psychology, nursing, professional issues and trends, dementia, sociology, and more. We also publish highly respected gerontology journals, including the landmark Annual Review of Gerontology and Geriatrics.
