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, systematic reviews, short communications, hypotheses, commentaries, editorials, ethics reviews/responses, and book reviews. Letters-to-the-Editor and blogs are considered for online posting. 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 Editorial Manager. The authors should identify an Associate Editor (co-authors are disqualified) 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 3.4 [Journal Citation Reports (Source: Clarivate, 2024)], an h-index of 171 (Web of Science), an h-index of 177 (SCImago Journal Rank indicator), a CiteScore of 6.4 (Scopus), an h5-index of 83 (Google Scholar), and an h5-median of 123 (Google Scholar).

During 2018, JAD celebrates its 20th anniversary and we invite you to view the special message (here) about the journal's 20 years from Editor-in-Chief George Perry. An open access celebratory issue was published as JAD 62:3. View the content at: tiny.cc/JAD-anniv. The anniversary issue pays tribute to those who have contributed to JAD and then, we look forward to what lies in store to the next years of AD research, in our new book Alzheimer's Disease: New Beginnings. We also published a special commemorative publication that can be viewed online here (PDF).


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.



Book Series

The book series "Advances in Alzheimer's Disease" brings together the latest insights in Alzheimer’s disease research in specific areas in which major advances have been made. It assembles and builds on work recently published in JAD, and also includes further contributions to ensure comprehensive coverage of the topic. The emphasis is on the development of novel approaches to understanding and treating Alzheimer’s and related diseases. Find out more at: tiny.cc/AIAD. The latest volume, Alzheimer's Disease and Air Pollution, is available here.
