* The ACM network was officially created in 2011, with the assistance of a Partnership Development Grant from SSHRC. These publications have been included as they were formative in the creation of the network.
Most of the publications included speak directly to the intersections of ageing and communications. We have however, included the occasional publication by team members that are on ICTS, more generally.
