About the Journal

The Asia Pacific League of Clinical Gerontology and Geriatrics (APLCGG) was founded to promote international research on gerontology and geriatrics, especially in the Asia-Pacific region. The APLCGG official journal, Journal of Clinical Gerontology & Geriatrics (JCGG), was conceived in 2009 at its founding meeting, with the participation of delegates representing Taiwan, Japan, South Korea, Singapore, Indonesia, the United Kingdom, the United States of America, and Hungary; it was launched soon afterwards, in 2010.

The JCGG is an Open Access journal, currently indexed in: Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ), Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI), TOC Premier, SIIC Data Bases and EBSCOhost.


The principal aims of JCGG include:

  1. Introducing Asian perspectives on international aging research
  2. Promoting regional collaboration in clinical trials based on similar racial/ethnic backgrounds
  3. Facilitating the development of age-friendly healthcare systems for Asian countries
  4. Encouraging international research collaboration on related topics in the Asia-Pacific region


To these ends, the JCGG covers topics that include, but are not limited to: health service research for older adults; clinical trials involving Asian participants, including Asian expatriates and persons of Asian descent residing outside Asia; international and comparative research; interdisciplinary clinical gerontology research.


The JCGG welcomes Reviews and Original Research articles, Brief Communications, Case Reports and Letters to the Editor.
