About the Journal

Aims and Scope
The Journal of Alzheimer's Disease (JAD) is an international multidisciplinary journal to facilitate progress in understanding the etiology, pathogenesis, epidemiology, genetics, behavior, treatment and psychology of Alzheimer's disease. The journal publishes research reports, reviews, short communications, hypotheses, ethics reviews, book reviews, and letters-to-the-editor. The journal is dedicated to providing an open forum for original research that will expedite our fundamental understanding of Alzheimer's disease.
Editorial Policy
The primary means of submission is through mstracker.com. The authors should identify an Associate Editor with expertise in the scope of the manuscript. The Associate Editor will be responsible for identifying reviewers and, after receiving reviews, for making a recommendation on the acceptability of the manuscript for publication. All final decisions on acceptability will be made by the Editor-in-Chief. The Associate Editors will be listed in the article as the Handling Associate Editor. Corresponding authors of accepted articles may be invited to join JAD as Associate Editors. See Information for Authors for details.
The Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease is a member of the Neuroscience Peer Review Consortium. The Consortium is an alliance of neuroscience journals that have agreed to accept manuscript reviews from each other.
Impact Factor/H-Factor
JAD has an Impact Factor of 3.731 (2017 Journal Citation Reports), an h-index of 87 (Web of Science), an h-index of 85 (SCImago Journal Rank indicator), an h5-index of 62 (Google Scholar), and an h5-median of 78 (Google Scholar).

Our Cover

For the current cover (2004-present), JAD editors chose Casey Reas, an artist and educator exploring abstract kinetic systems through diverse digital media including software, animation, and digital prints. Casey's cover for JAD was generated from software written specifically for the journal. It generates thousands of flower-like images and from these many variations, Casey selected the cover image. The chosen form and color are a reference to the magnolia flower of Darryl Evan’s cover illustration (1999-2003) of Hippocrates, where the flying pieces of the Alzheimer's puzzle and steel magnolia symbolize the one out of the sixteen Americans who stand behind each Alzheimer's victim. And so with this motif, the two covers, past and present, link and illustrate the continuance in JAD's mission to deliver top-quality science.
