We've been on the web since 2002, when we first premiered as "Journal of Population and Social Security". We changed our name to "The Japanese Journal of Social Security Policy" to better reflect the nature of our online publication from June 2003.

All our previous issues are here. As always, thanks for spending your online time with us.
