The Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease continues to strengthen and build on its lead as the most prolific and highly cited journal in the Alzheimer’s disease (AD) field. Its prestigious editorial board is led by two internationally acknowledged experts in the field:
Editor-in-Chief George Perry, PhD, Professor of Biology, Dean of College of Sciences, University of Texas at San Antonio, is distinguished as one of the top Alzheimer's disease researchers (http://iospress.metapress.com/content/v932x18k23300844/fulltext.pdf) with over 800 publications and one of the top 100 most-cited scientists in Neuroscience & Behavior.

George Perry and Mark A. Smith commented, “It is extremely rewarding to see continuing evidence of the Journal’s increasing value to AD researchers and academic physicians. It is significant that since its inclusion in Index Copernicus in 2009, the Journal is already ranked so highly in comparison to the world’s top scientific and medical journals.”
