Description

The mission of Alzheimer's & Dementia: Journal of the Alzheimer's Association is to bridge the knowledge gaps across a wide range of bench-to-bedside investigation. The journal publishes the results of studies in: behavior, biochemistry, genetics, molecular biology, pharmacology, physiology, protein chemistry, neurology, neuropathology, psychiatry, geriatrics, neuropsychology, epidemiology, sociology, health services research, health economics, political science and public policy. Content emphasizes interdisciplinary investigations, integrative/translational articles, related to: etiology, risk factors, early detection, disease modifying interventions, prevention of dementia and applications of new technologies in health services.

The journal publishes

  • comprehensive reviews;
  • research articles;
  • information on clinical trials;
  • short reports;
  • in-depth perspectives/open-peer commentaries;
  • theoretical and/or translational papers that attempt integrate knowledge across discipline;
  • history & politics of science/brief biographies;
  • abstracts of papers presented at international meetings; and
  • negative results, particularly clinical trials, as short communications.

The ultimate objective is to create a novel forum for:

  • rapid communication of new findings, ideas or perspectives;
  • disseminating knowledge, across the spectrum of basic to clinical studies, necessary for optimal translation of research findings into practical applications/interventions;
  • integrating knowledge across disciplines;
  • increase knowledge in diverse disciplines to promote early detection/diagnosis and/or interventions;
  • formulating new theories and/or strategies for the rigorous testing of theories or their predictions;
  • identifying promising new directions of research;
  • providing the scientific impetus for new initiatives; and
  • public policies concerning research on prevention and new models of health services.
