In response to the Australian Government Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety, the Australasian Journal on Ageingcommissioned three Virtual Issues of previously published articles focusing on the terms of reference of the Royal Commission.  The Australasian Journal on Ageingpublishes studies about research and innovation in aged care across many areas of importance to the terms of reference of the Australian Government Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety. This evidence base should be an important source for policy makers. The breadth and depth of research on ageing in Australia provides a strong case for continued investment in both research and best practice implementation that will support aged care services being delivered in a way that provides efficient and effective outcomes for older Australians. The three Virtual Issues can be found at the links below, and the three editorials for each issue are attached. We sincerely hope that these works can contribute to this important debate.
