The journal encompasses a wide variety of methodological approaches to population research. Its geographic focus is global, with articles addressing demographic matters from around the planet. Its temporal scope is broad, as represented by research that explores demographic phenomena from past to present and reaching toward the future.

Subscribe to Open

Demography is available through a Subscribe to Open (S20) model in an effort to achieve the goals of broad dissemination of content valued by scholars, researchers, mayors and city practitioners. S2O is a sustainable and equitable non-APC revenue model that offers a wide range of benefits to researchers, libraries, and the community at large. Institutional subscribers access the content through subscription, as with a regular subscription model. Once an annual subscription threshold is met, the volume year becomes available as Open Access (OA). This makes the content available to all without any cost to authors.
