Aims and scope

BMC Geriatrics is an open access journal publishing original peer-reviewed research articles in all aspects of the health and healthcare of older people, including the effects of healthcare systems and policies. The journal also welcomes research focused on the aging process, including cellular, genetic, and physiological processes and cognitive modifications.

Featured Content: March 2021

Research: Epidemiology and associated factors of polypharmacy in older patients in primary care: a northern Italian cross-sectional study

Developing strategies to reduce polypharmacy and its harmful consequences by studying its epidemiology and associated factors showed that the prevalence of polypharmacy, potentially inappropriate medications and major drug-drug interactions was considerable.

Research: Exploring rehabilitation potential in older people living with frailty: a qualitative focus group study

Rehabilitation interventions are frequently cited as key in supporting frail older people’s recovery and clinicians are required to make decisions about a patient’s potential to respond to rehabilitation determining their access to services. This study aims to explore perspectives on the concept of rehabilitation potential and how it is assessed in acute healthcare settings.

Announcement

As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times.  Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.

Valuable data often go unpublished when they could be helping to progress science. Hence, the BMC Series introduced Data notes, a short article type allowing you to describe your data and publish them to make your data easier to find, cite and share.

You can publish your data in BMC Genomic Data (genomic, transcriptomic and high-throughput genotype data) or in BMC Research Notes (data from across all natural and clinical sciences). 

More information about our unique article type can be found on the BMC Genomic Data and BMC Research Notes journal websites.
