Alzheimer's & Dementia
The Journal of the Alzheimer's Association
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 and, • abstracts of papers presented at international meetings. Negative results, particularly clinical trials, are published 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 and, • providing the scientific impetus for new initiatives; or public policies concerning research on prevention and new models of health services.
