Industry News: Inaugural Edition of GeroScience Journal - Submission Deadline Nov. 1 View MoreBACK

As of January 1, 2017, the American Aging Association, AGE, will be changing its name to GeroScience.

This is not simply a change in the name but the creation of an exciting journal that responds to the needs of scientists studying the mechanisms of aging and age-related disease. The journal will be heavily focused on cellular mechanisms of aging (from yeast to humans) but will also publish clinical studies that address mechanisms of aging and interventional studies.  Several special editions are in progress and there a range of opportunities available to publish in the new journal. 

 

The following article types are welcome:

- Commentaries

Review

Full length manuscripts

Methods

Short Communications

Opinions

 

The editorial board has a commitment to:

- Rapid review: Goal is 16 days from submission to first decision. If your manuscript has been reviewed and rejected by another journal, you can request an accelerated review (less than 7 days) by including the comments of the previous reviewers and your response to the critique.

- Quality publishing using Springer Nature

- Wide Circulation: The Table of Contents will be sent to all members of the American Aging Association and a majority of scientists in the aging field

- Citation in PubMed

 

Inaugural Edition: November 1, 2016 is the deadline for submission of manuscripts for the inaugural edition
