Research and policy consulting publications: search for books, book-chapters and journal articles by DZA authors and series published by the institute.
In various ways the German Institute of Gerontology contributes to the dissemination of knowledge by publishing research findings, social reports, policy consulting papers as well as by giving access to its research data. Many of them are published in scientific journals or books by academic publishing houses.
The DZA prevarably is endavouring to provide an open and free access to its publications; at the time, many, but not all of them, are accessible free of charge. The DZA has signed the "Berlin Declaration on Open Access to Knowledge in the Sciences and Humanities (2003)" and, in its spirit, makes most of its publications available in open access (accessible free of charge, re-usable, sustainable and provided with structured metadata).
Actual findings from gerontological research are published in the following series (german only) and can be downloaded:
