Genus: Journal of Population Sciences
Published/Hosted by Università degli Studi di Roma La Sapienza.
Genus is an online peer-reviewed Journal of Population Sciences published by the University of Rome “La Sapienza” with the support of the “Dipartimento di Studi Sociali, Economici, Attuariali e Demografici” (Department of Social, Economic, Actuarial, and Demographic Studies). GENUS has adopted an interdisciplinary approach to population studies. It publishes articles of “pure” demography and articles aiming to further a better knowledge of the interrelationship between demography and biological, social and economic phenomena, connected with the evolution of the population.Our editorial staff have a breadth of experience and are affiliated with a variety of academic and research institutions that reflect this interdisciplinary focus. These have spanned not only pure demography but also anthropology and anthropometrics, sociology and psychology, biology and genetics. In keeping with the times -and particularly from 1965 under Nora Federici, and from 1993 under Antonio Golini as directors – an increasing number of articles have been published on general population theories, population dynamics and mathematical demography. GENUS has always tried to promote open dialogue across cultural, ideological and at times theoretical walls in the attempt to understand the complexities underlying population issues. GENUS is available free of charge to all members of the International Union for the Scientific Study of Population (IUSSP).
