Aims & scope

Women’s Midlife Health is an interdisciplinary open access journal that considers original articles and reviews on the physical and mental health of women during midlife, with a focus on aging, reproductive aging including the menopause, and their inter-relationship. We define the midlife as age 35 to 65 and encompassing the late reproductive to late postmenopausal stages of reproductive aging. The journal welcomes clinical and population-based research that provides new insights into the health transitions that occur during midlife and with menopause, with a particular interest in articles addressing vulnerabilities and opportunities during this life stage and interventions that promote healthy aging.
