Gerontology and Geriatric Medicine (GGM) is an interdisciplinary, peer-reviewed, open access journal focusing on the psychological, behavioral, social, and biological aspects of aging. The journal addresses a wide variety of topics in gerontology and geriatrics, including health economics, health services research, health outcomes, public health, medicine, biology, equity, social science, epidemiology, demography, and nursing. GGM reflects the global importance and interest in this subject area and its particular relevance to countries that are experiencing an exponential growth in older population.

GGM seeks to be one of the world’s premier Open Access outlets for gerontological academic research. As such, GGM does not limit content due to page budgets or thematic significance. Papers will be subjected to rigorous peer review but will be selected solely on the basis of whether the research is sound and deserves publication. By virtue of not restricting papers to a narrow discipline, GGM facilitates the discovery of the connections between papers. The journal emphasizes novelty and new directions and encourages contributions with diverse theoretical and methodological approaches.

Gerontology and Geriatric Medicine is affiliated with the Southern Gerontological Society.

The Southern Medical Association provides Continuing Medical Education (CME) credits for the Teaching Case Studies series, "Managing Aberrant Behavior In Patients With Dementia".

Open Access
Open access is an interesting alternative model to the subscription model of journal publication. In the traditional subscription system, full access to the journal is granted either via annual subscriptions or in the form of fee per article. On the other hand, open access does not require a fee for accessing the content of each article, and thus is available freely.

Authors who should submit to Gerontology and Geriatric Medicine include:

  • Require their articles to be published immediately on an Open Access basis (eg due to university, government or funder mandates)
  • Require their articles to benefit from rapid peer review and efficient production, ensuring rapid publication time
  • Want their articles to receive free, broad, and global distribution on a powerful, highly discoverable publishing platform
  • Want their articles published by a world-leading independent publisher

Our goal is to publish sound science. This means we look for research that adheres to ethical standards, uses robust methodologies that are transparent and reproducible, and uses appropriate statistical analyses to ensure clear, credible, and trustworthy results. We care more about the quality and reliability of the contribution an article makes than we do the size of that contribution. Gerontology and Geriatric Medicine evaluates manuscripts based on how the research was conducted and reported.
