Healthy Aging Research is an open access journal that operates with a double-blind peer review policy.
It publishes articles on recent advances in the understanding of the processes responsible for and associated with aging.
Dissemination and implementation of new knowledge on aging will have a significant impact on the improvement of quality of life and the treatment of diseases.
The journal launched in December 2012, and whilst it does not have an impact factor nor is indexed in PubMed/Medline at the moment, indexing will be requested very soon.
Healthy Aging Research is indexed by Google Scholar and Thomson Reuters' Emerging Sources Citation Index.
National Library of Medicine ID: 101647988.
Aims and Scope
Healthy Aging Research focuses on elucidating both normal and pathogenic mechanisms associated with aging, clinical trials of novel drugs and anti-aging agents, and imaging of organs, structures and tumors. It also focuses on treating and preventing age-associated diseases such as stroke, myocardial infarction, cancer, arthritis, cataracts, osteoporosis, type 2 diabetes, hypertension and Alzheimer's disease, to ultimately reduce morbidity and mortality.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to drug development, oncology, neurology, internal medicine, radiology, nuclear medicine, age-related diseases, surgery, nursing, epidemiology, rehabilitation, critical care medicine, physiology, psychology and ophthalmology.
