Experimental Gerontology appears 12 times per year and provides a forum for the publication of work that elucidates the processes of biological aging in fungi, plants, animals, and humans from the molecular level to that of the whole organism. Experimental Gerontology publishes original work in the fields of biochemistry, cell biology, genetics, molecular biology, neurosciences, nutrition, immunology, and endocrinology. The journal also aims at bridging the gap between basic and clinical aspects of gerontology by publishing papers on basic aspects of age-related diseases such as Alzheimer's Disease, atherosclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, benign prostatic hyperplasia and other proliferative and metabolic disorders of the aged. Manuscripts on psychological, social and epidemiological aspects of aging and reports on clinical studies do not fall within the scope of the journal. In addition to original Research Manuscripts, Short Reports, Reviews, Mini-Reviews, Commentaries, Perspectives, Meeting Reports, Opinions on controversial subjects as well as Images of Experimental Gerontology are published. A team of internationally established Editors covering all fields of gerontology is responsible for the scientific quality of this core journal. A competent, fair and fast reviewing process is guaranteed.
