Dear Colleagues,

As the publication organ of the Academic Geriatrics Society, we are pleased to see the publication of “European Journal of Geriatrics and Gerontology”. There are more older adults in the world than ever before, and information in the field of geriatrics and gerontology is also increasing in parallel with this fact. In the last 20 years, studies on this subject have also accelerated in our country. Science is universal, and researchers and scientists in our country both follow current developments in the world and contribute to science with their scientific studies. This international scientific journal emerged as a result of a need.

Sarcopenia, fragility, polypharmacy, falls, urinary and fecal incontinence, dementia, depression, delirium, pressure sores, sleep disorders, Parkinson’s disease, diabetes mellitus, hypertension, cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases, osteoarthritis, osteoporosis and other subjects are constantly being studied. In addition, the journal will include aging biology and healthy aging, demographic information, palliative care, long-term care, urology, ophthalmology, otolaryngology, geropsychiatry, gynecology, urology, trauma, emergency medicine, orthogeriatrics, and physical medicine and rehabilitation. Geriatrics is an area that requires multidisciplinary teamwork, so gerontological researches in geropsychology, pharmacology, nursing, dietary expertise, physiotherapy and social work, and developments in gerotechnology are our main fields.

The journal is open-access and accessible free of charge. We believe that we will perform a useful activity in the field of gerontology and geriatrics with our editorial board and referees, including respected names from the international community. We are expecting submissions from clinicians and researchers in our country and other countries. We hope to take our place in national and international indexes such as ULAKBIM, PubMed and Science Citation Index Expanded.

I would like to thank my colleagues, Academic Geriatrics Society and the entire Geriatrics-Gerontology community for their great efforts in the preparation of the journal. I thank you in advance for your support on the behalf of our editorial board, and we believe that we will achieve our goals with your support.
