Dr. Brian Chen, adjunct faculty at The Herbert Wertheim School of Public Health and Human Longevity Science at UC San Diego and the Chief Science Officer of FOXO Technologies, describes his experience publishing numerous papers with Aging (Aging-US).
Hi, I’m Brian Chen, adjunct faculty at the Herbert Wertheim School of Public Health and Human Longevity Science at UC San Diego. I’m also the Chief Science Officer of FOXO Technologies, a startup working to support human longevity using epigenetic science and AI.
I published several papers with the journal, Aging, including one of the first meta-analyses relating epigenetic age acceleration with the risk of mortality. The landmark paper by Morgan Levine as first author, which represents the first second generation epigenetic clock, pheno age. Also published papers relating epigenetic age acceleration to tumor lengths, diet, exercise, lifestyle factors. As well as epigenome-wide association studies for myocardial infarction and coronary heart disease and mortality.
Why did I choose the journal Aging? Three main reasons. First, there’s a world class editorial board that I have the utmost respect for. Second, the turnaround for a review is very quick. We’ve all been there: You’re very busy, you have several papers under submission, and you don’t have time for this back-and-forth with reviewer comments. Aging is very quick. The comments are very reasonable and they stay on top of the reviewers to return those reviews. I value that tremendously. And then also the platform is very modern, the submission and the access to the journals. I don’t always have all my papers saved on my computer, but I know that with just a few clicks, I could download the original PDF straight from the Aging website.
So for all these reasons, I am very grateful for the journal. We’ll continue to publish there. Happy to support them in any way. Thanks, bye.
