Abstract

In 2019, the Journal of Clinical Gerontology and Geriatrics (JCGG) changed the title to Aging Medicine and Healthcare (AMH), and started its journey as a new journal in academic publishing.1 The JCGG was supported by the Asia-Pacific League of Clinical Gerontology and Geriatrics (APLCGG), an international virtual academic platform in Asia-Pacific region with special interest in Geriatrics. When activities of APLCGG ended, the Asian Association for Frailty and Sarcopenia (AAFS) together with the Taiwan Association for Integrated Care (TAIC) took over the mission to continue the journal publishing and changed the title to AMH with a bigger scope. Currently, AMH is the official journal of AAFS and TAIC that welcomes submissions from researchers all over the world. With the new name and new supporting societies, AMH also broadened the aim and scope into a more international journal that published academic research papers on various issues related to population aging, especially the healthcare services and systems. The visibility and submissions of AMH dropped in 2019-2020, which was a common situation at the transitional stage of an academic journal. The indexing in the “Emerging Sources Citation Index” (ESCI) by the Journal Citation Reports (JCR) in 2021 substantially stimulated submissions to AMH. The CiteScore of AMH in the Scopus database was 0.8 in 2020, and significantly increasedto 1.2 in 2021. The Journal Citation Index (JCI) of AMH in the JCR was 0.16 in 2021, and is estimated to increase in 2022 as well. These figures demonstrated the success of the transition of AMH from JCGG, and AMH is expected to grow continuously.
