Abstract

Welcome to another volume of the Australasian Journal on Ageing (AJA). This issue includes an acknowledgement of all our 2017 reviewers. Thank you all for your contribution to the journal.I would like to briefly discuss a core requirement for achieving scholarly publication in the AJA and in all journals that follow the guidelines of the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors – evidence of ethical approval for human research. Human research is conducted with or about people, their data and/or their tissue and can include ‘participants’ who may not even know they are the subjects of research. If you wish to publish human research, you will need ethics approval for that research.In recent months, there have been an increasing number of manuscripts submitted to AJA without clear evidence of ethical approval. This oversight is detected very early in the AJA review process, and authors are requested to provide this evidence before the manuscript can be sent for peer review.
