Today Oxford Journals and The Gerontological Society of America (GSA)
announced a new publishing partnership for GSA's three journals: *The
Gerontologist*, and *The Journals of Gerontology: Series A Biological
Sciences and Medical Sciences* and *Series B Psychological Sciences and
Oxford Journals will be publishing the three GSA journals from 2009. First
published as one journal in 1946, *The Journal of Gerontology* was the first
journal on ageing to be published in the United States. Over the years, the
journal grew tremendously and, in 1961, became three separate publications (
*Series A Biological Sciences and Medical Sciences*, *Series B Psychological
Sciences and Social Sciences*, and *The Gerontologist*). *The Journals of
Gerontology*, *Series A and Series B*, cover a broad range of approaches. *The
Gerontologist *is a bimonthly journal that provides a multidisciplinary
perspective on human ageing through the publication of research and analysis
in gerontology, including social policy, program development, and service
Both readers and librarians will be pleased to know that Oxford Journals is
digitizing the back archive of *The Gerontologist *and *The Journals of
Gerontology*. Content dating back to volume one, issue one will be included
in the Oxford Journals Archive in 2009.
*The Gerontologist *and *The Journals of Gerontology* join Oxford Journals'
prestigious collection of journals which is strong in social sciences,
medicine, biological sciences, and public health, and includes complementary
titles in the field of ageing. According to the recent 2007 Journal Citation
Reports, one fifth of this collection is in the top 10% and over two thirds
in the top 50% of their subject category.
Oxford Journals <http://www.oxforjdournals.org/>, a Division of OUP,
publishes over 220 journals covering a broad range of subject areas,
two-thirds of which are published in collaboration with learned societies
and other international organizations. The collection contains some of the
world's most prestigious titles, including *Nucleic Acids Research*, *JNCI*(
*Journal of the National Cancer Institute*), *Brain*, *Human Reproduction*,
*English Historical Review*, and the *Review of Financial Studies*.
