With the participation of delegates from Taiwan, Japan, South Korea, Singapore, Indonesia, the United Kingdom, the United States and Hungary, the Journal of Clinical Gerontology and Geriatrics (JCGG) was conceived at the founding meeting in 2009 and launched shortly after wards in 2010.

To achieve these purposes, the JCGG Topics covered by the journal include but are not limited to health service research for older adults, clinical trials involving Asian populations (including Asian expatriates, and persons of Asian descent outside Asia), international and comparative research, as well as interdisciplinary clinical gerontology research.
