 About Journal of Geriatric Cardiology
General Information
Journal of Geriatric Cardiology (J Geriatr Cardiol, JGC, ISSN 1671-5411/ CN 11-5329/R) is a monthly, open-access (OA), international, and peer-reviewed journal sponsored by the Institute of Geriatric Cardiology (IGC), Chinese PLA General Hospital and published by Science Press.
JGC focuses on both basic research and clinical practice to the diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular disease in the aged people, especially those with concomitant disease of other major organ-systems, such as the lungs, the kidneys, liver, central nervous system, gastrointestinal tract or endocrinology, etc.
Publishing Model
The publishing model of JGC is OA. The biggest advantage of the OA model is that it provides free, full-text articles in PDF and other formats for experts and the public without registration. We believe that OA publishing can foster the exchange of research results amongst scientists from different disciplines, thus facilitating interdisciplinary research, whilst providing access to research results to researchers world-wide. It has been proved that OA publishing is an enriching part of the scholarly communication process that should and could co-exist with other forms of communication and publication, such as society-based publishing and conferencing activities.
Content types
The content types published by JGC are: (1) Editorial: To introduce and comment on the substantial advance and its importance in cardiology; (2) Research Articles: To originally report the innovative and valuable finding in cardiology research; (3) Observation: To update the development of old and new questions, highlight unsolved problems, and provide strategies on how to solve the questions; (4) Symposium: A group of review articles or research articles focusing on a specific topic; (5) Review: To systemically review the most representative progress and unsolved problems in the major scientific disciplines, comment on the current research status, and make suggestions on the future work;  (6) Case Report: To report a rare or typical case; (7) Guidelines: To introduce Consensuses and Guidelines reached by international academic authorities worldwide; and (8) Letters to the Editor: To discuss and make reply to the contributions published in JGC, or to introduce and comment on a controversial issue of general interest.
