About

The American Association for Geriatric Psychiatry (AAGP) is the only national association that has products, activities and publications, which focus exclusively on the challenges of geriatric psychiatry. Practitioners, researchers, educators, students, the public—anyone interested in improving the mental health of the elderly—have relied on AAGP since 1978 as the key driver for progress for elderly mental health care.

The American Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry is the authoritative source of information for the rapidly developing field of geriatric psychiatry. The Journal is a benefit of AAGP membership; non-members can subscribe. The Journal contains peer-reviewed articles on the diagnosis and classification of psychiatric disorders of later life, epidemiological and biological correlates of mental health of older adults, and psychopharmacology and other somatic treatments. The Journal is published twelve times a year.

Indexed by Index Medicus Current Contents (Life Sciences, Clinical Medicine), Social & Behavioral Sciences, Social Sciences Citation Index, Science Citation Index, SciSearch Database, ISI/BioMed, Research Alert), EMBASE/Excerpta medica, BIOSIS, Chemical Abstracts, Sociological Abstracts, Biological Abstracts, PsycINFO, and CINAHL.
