National Association of Social and Applied Gerontology (NASAG) has recently assumed responsibility for the planning and introduction of a new international journal, namely, the Journal of Aging and Long-Term Care (JALTC). With world societies facing rapid increases in their respective older populations, there is a need for new 21st century visions, practices, cultural sensitivities and evidenced-based policies that assist in balancing the tensions between informal and formal long-term care support and services as well as examining topics about aging. The JALTC is being launched as the official journal of the NASAG.
The preceding journal aims to foster new scholarship contributions that address theoretical, clinical and practical issues related to aging and long-term care. It is intended that the JALTC will be the first and foremost a multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary journal seeking to use research to build quality-based public policies for long-term health care for older people.

The National and Applied Gerontology Association (NASAG) is a leading non-profit organization in Türkiye that promotes healthy and productive aging via evidence-based research. The utilization of multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary research in gerontology is crucial in integrating research, practice, and policy, given the need for evidence-based programming to improve the quality of life in old age. As an advocate for social action for older people, the NASAG is particularly concerned that public policies are strongly and genuinely focused on supporting and protecting the most vulnerable, marginalized, or disadvantaged older people.
The NASAG has been a member of the International Association of Gerontology and Geriatrics (IAGG) since 2007.
