Launched in 2009, Aging is a peer-reviewed, traditional-style, monthly journal with free access.
As a traditional journal, Aging publishes papers online in monthly issues with page numbers. Each issue/paper can be printed upon special request.
Accepted papers appear online and in PubMed very quickly.
Aging is indexed in PubMed/Medline (abbreviated as Aging (Albany NY), PubMed Central (abbreviated as Aging (Albany NY), Web of Science/Science Citation Index Expanded (abbreviated as Aging-US), Scopus (abbreviated as Aging), BIOSIS Previews, Biological Abstracts, and EMBASE. In 2018, Aging was invited to participate and is now indexed in META, a world-renowned database of scientific literature. All Aging content is archived in PubMed Central.
The publisher also maintains the journal's own digital archive.
(IF) WEB OF SCIENCE
Aging publishes high-impact research papers of general interest and biological significance in all fields of aging research, including, but not limited to, cellular senescence, DNA damage and repair, organismal aging, age-related diseases, genetic control of aging from yeast to mammals, regulation of longevity, evolution of aging, anti-aging strategies and drug development, and especially the role of signal transduction pathways in aging and potential approaches to modulate these signaling pathways to extend lifespan.
Aging also covers many other topics (beyond traditional gerontology), including cellular and molecular biology (e.g., regulation of translation, cell growth, death and autophagy, mitochondria, microRNAs, and stem cells), human age-related diseases, pathology in model organisms, cancer and signal transduction pathways (e.g., p53, sirtuins, and PI-3K/AKT/mTOR among others), and approaches to modulate these signaling pathways.

The Aging Editorial Board is composed of scientists from all over the world, predominantly from the USA. Among them are Cynthia Kenyon, Judith Campisi, Leonard Guarente, Michael Hall, Thomas Rando, and other outstanding scientists. The Board includes six members of the National Academy of Sciences (USA) and Lasker and Nobel Award recipients (Elizabeth H. Blackburn). It also includes the directors of some of the largest American cancer centers, directors of research from prominent pharmaceutical companies, professors from prestigious Universities, Editors of leading journals, and other prolific and distinguished scientists.
Aging has published outstanding papers and reviews by Lawrence Donehower, Toren Finkel, Stephen Helfand, Gerald Shadel, Andre Nussenzweig, Maurice Burg, Karen Vousden, Leonard Guarente, Dale Bredesen and other highly cited authors.
Elizabeth Blackburn, a member of the Editorial Board of Aging, won the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine 2009 while a member of the Board. Elizabeth Blackburn co-authored a paper published in the inaugural issue of Aging.
Andrew V. Schally, a Nobel Prize Laureate, published a paper in Aging.
Shinya Yamanaka, who won the Nobel Prize in Physiology and Medicine 2012, has co-authored a paper published in Aging.
Aging is now offering free Altmetric Article Reports as a new part of our Journal platform, which enables real-time tracking of article coverage in digital and traditional media channels, often long before traditional citations begin to accrue.
We are pleased to announce the new face of Aging coming in 2019 with an enhanced content delivery platform, new features, and intuitive navigation.
Our mission is to share novel scientific discoveries across all fields of age-related research. We welcome scientists from all disciplines, not only those in traditional gerontology. We aim to spread knowledge of the mechanisms surrounding aging and age-related disease, and ultimately seek to understand how to affect these pathways to extend healthy life.
