Over the past decades countries of the world have experienced increase in the share of older people in demographics and the number is expected to rise even more. People are becoming more than ever dependent on digital technologies. The aim of this study is to map the body of literature concerning historical digital development over the last 20 years that people of 75 years and older in European countries have been part of. Moreover the goal is to identify research gaps in the existing literature in order to inform future research. The five-staged Arksey and O’Malley methodology framework is used to guide the scoping review process. Research strategy and eligibility criteria are defined. The study selection is made based on the eligibility criteria. A framework developed for the scoping review informs the charting of data from the included studies. Results will be summarized with criteria relevant for policy-makers, healthcare providers and the public.
