The Journal of Aging Research and Clinical Practice.
The aims of the new journal is to connect more closely research on aging and clinical practice in several fields including Alzheimer’s disease, memory and physical decline, sarcopenia, nutrition, and other age-related diseases or syndromes. Our aging population is growing fast, mostly in new emerging countries from Asia, South America and Africa. In the next few decades, these regions will need to benefit from all that has already been accomplished during the last century in Northern America and Western Europe. The Journal of Aging Research and Clinical Practice (J.A.R.C.P) is a new initiative of the IAGG (International Association of Gerontology and Geriatrics), and of the GARN (IAGG’s Global Aging Research Network), dedicated to latest findings and clinical experiences in the fields of aging, gerontology and geriatrics.
