Farewell JCGG and Hello AMH
Fleeting time – Fruition – Senescence – Regeneration?
The dandelion beautifying the cover of our inaugural issue of Aging Medicine and Healthcare can symbolize many contrasting concepts. What more apt visual metaphor then, to represent the raison d’être of our reenvisioned journal?
From cutting-edge therapeutics to hands-on care, healthy aging, and health care services, Aging Medicine and Healthcare aims to bring readers international advances and disseminate best practice across the spectrum of clinical gerontology and geriatrics. We hope that you enjoy reading the new-look journal and look forward to receiving your contributions, too!
The Asian Association for Frailty and Sarcopenia (AAFS) was founded to promote research efforts, both in Asia and internationally, relevant to frailty, sarcopenia and other age-related conditions, as well as servicing the healthcare needs of older people. The official AAFS journal is Aging Medicine and Healthcare (AMH), formerly the Journal of Clinical Gerontology and Geriatrics (JCGG), which was founded in 2010. JCGG was renamed AMH from 2019, to reflect a change to a more intensive focus on research topics including aging medicine, frailty, sarcopenia, and other age-related conditions, and healthcare services for older people. AMH also has the honor of being the official journal of the Taiwan Association for Integrated Care (TAIC), which promotes care integration for age-related conditions.
The AMH is an Open Access journal, currently indexed in: Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ), Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI), TOC Premier, SIIC Data Bases, and EBSCOhost.
The principal aims of AMH include:
1. Disseminating professional perspectives on international advances in aging research
2. Promoting international collaboration in Aging Medicine
3. Facilitating the development of healthcare systems with a life-course approach
4. Encouraging international research collaboration Aging Medicine and related topics
To pursue this mission, the AMH covers topics that include, but are not limited to: aging medicine, healthy aging, and health service research for older adults, with a strong focus on the biology, and pathophysiology of frailty, sarcopenia and other age-related conditions, and therapeutic interventions for people with these conditions.
The AMH welcomes Reviews and Original Research articles, Brief Communications, Case Reports, and Letters to the Editor.
