Abstrakt

On the basis of an interpretive review, the objective here is to discuss the research articles on media representations of older adults published between 2000-2015 in order to examine:
1)The issues and problems that are being addressed,
2)The gaps and blind spots of the studies with regards to the representation of older adults.

The review encompasses 192 research articles found in the databases Academic Search Premiere, Communication Source, SOCindex and Scopus. The criteria for inclusion were that the articles should be in English, published between 2000-2015 in a scholarly, peer-reviewed journal with a primary focus on the media representation of older adults. The searches resulted in more than 3000 hits that were filtered for relevancy. Through this process, the number of potentially relevant papers was reduced to a little above 400 articles that were read and filtered yet again, resulting in the final number of 192 articles.
