Age and Ageing is an international journal publishing refereed original
articles and commissioned reviews on geriatric medicine and gerontology.
Its range includes research on ageing and clinical, epidemiological and
psychological aspects of later life.
Age and Ageing online contains the full content (in PDF format) of each
issue of the journal, including all figures and tables, beginning with the
January 1999 issue (Volume 28, Number 1). Abstract files are available
beginning in November 1974 (Volume 3, Number 4), and tables of contents
are online beginning with the May 1972 issue (Volume 1, Number 2).
Each issue will be placed online approximately on the date it is mailed to
subscribers; therefore the online site will be available prior to receipt
of your paper copy. The January 2000 issue (Volume 29, Number 1) is the
latest issue online, and the next issue is scheduled to be online on May
29. Online readers may want to sign up for the eTOCs (electronic Table of
Contents) service, which will deliver each new issue's table of contents
The web site also provides access to information about the journal (such
as Instructions to Authors, the Editorial Board, and subscription
information and order forms), as well as access to the Society web site.
Access to the full text of articles is by institutional license, which
comes with all institutional subscriptions, or by individual or student
subscription. All other access (e.g., to Abstracts, eTOCs, searching,
Instructions to Authors) is freely available.
We would appreciate comments, critiques, questions, or suggestions from
you; these can be sent via the Feedback link found on all pages of the
site. Feedback from readers will help us decide what new features would
be most valuable for the site and how well it is working for its readers.
The site is being produced in conjunction with Stanford University's
HighWire Press, which also works with other medical and research journals,
including these frequently-cited journals: BMJ, American Journal of
Clinical Nutrition, and Stroke. A list of online medical and research
