Scope At a time when interest in the process of aging is driving more and more research, 'Interdisciplinary Topics in Gerontology and Geriatrics' offers investigators a way to stay at the forefront of developments. This series represents a comprehensive and integrated approach to the problems of aging and presents pertinent data from studies in animal and human gerontology. In order to provide a forum for a unified concept of gerontology, both the biological foundations and the clinical and sociological consequences of aging in humans are presented. Individual volumes are characterized by an analytic overall view of the aging process, novel ideas, and original approaches to healthy aging as well as age-related functional decline.

The SJR is a size-independent prestige indicator that ranks journals by their 'average prestige per article'. It is based on the idea that 'all citations are not created equal'. SJR is a measure of scientific influence of journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where such citations come from It measures the scientific influence of the average article in a journal, it expresses how central to the global scientific discussion an average article of the journal is.

Citations per document

This indicator counts the number of citations received by documents from a journal and divides them by the total number of documents published in that journal. The chart shows the evolution of the average number of times documents published in a journal in the past two, three and four years have been cited in the current year. The two years line is equivalent to journal impact factor ™ (Thomson Reuters) metric.
