The Stanford Center on Longevity has reached an agreement to expand the global reach of the Center's Design Challenge through Aging 2.0's Chapter network. This year's challenge invites students around the world to "Innovate Aging in Place".

Research on consumer financial fraud is currently spread across a number of fields - including behavioral economics, psychology, marketing, law, finance and criminology. This eJournal includes working and accepted paper abstracts covering all aspects of consumer financial fraud to practitioners across these disparate fields. The objective is to expand the body of knowledge on financial fraud, make research findings and their implications more accessible to academics and policy makers, and encourage research in this field by providing researchers with a distribution channel that targets stakeholders in many relevant disciplines. Relevant topics include, but are not limited to, measuring the incidence and prevalence of financial fraud, profiling victims and fraudsters, understanding the causes and consequences of financial fraud, exploring relationships between cognitive ability and fraud victimization, fMRI research on fraud victims and evaluating the effectiveness of interventions to prevent financial fraud.
