The International Journal of Gerontology is the journal with intention to explore and clarify the medical science and philosophy in geriatric fields, especially those in the emergency and critical care medicine. The scientific information published here is grounded on clinical cases, statistic evidence of original studies, and accumulation of medical knowledge, humanistic ethics and basic researches.
Topics in the International Journal of Gerontology (IJGE) cover the advancement of diagnosis and management in urgent, serious and chronic intractable diseases in later life, preventive medicine, long-term care of disability, ethical issues in the diseased elderly and biochemistry, cell biology, endocrinology, molecular biology, pharmacology, physiology and protein chemistry involving diseases associated with age. We did not limit the territory to only critical or emergency condition inasmuch as chronic diseases are frequently brought about by inappropriate management of acute problems. We are also interested in studies bridging the gap between basic and clinical aspects of geriatric diseases In addition to original articles, book reviews, short communications and letters to the editor are also welcome.
