Prize Presentation & Journal Overview

AlzAwardWinner2018 AAIC pic

At the recent AAIC meeting in Chicago, JAD celebrated its 20th anniversary by presenting a special commemorative publication that looks at the journey that lies ahead for AD research. The publication is available online: click here (PDF).

Greg Kennedy received the prestigious 2018 Alzheimer Award for his outstanding article on how excercise can reduce the rate of age-associated cognitive decline published in JAD in 2017. He is pictured here with Editor-in-Chief George Perry at the award ceremony.

We were pleased to meet the many delegates who visited our booth. For those who entered our draw to win a free online subscription to JAD, the winner was selected at our booth on the last day of the exhibition and has now been informed.

Board Presentation

Being in Chicago for AAIC was also an opportunity to meet many of the authors, reviewers and Editorial Board members who work tirelessly to make JAD the success that it is. In order to keep our JAD editors, authors, and readers informed of JAD's progress and development, we are pleased to now share the 2018 editorial update. To view the presentation, click here (PDF).

This includes a wealth of highlights and statistics, including the most-viewed papers, the most popular press releases, and interesting journal statistics such as the turnaround times and submission rates. To discover the milestones that have led to JAD becoming a vehicle for more papers on AD than any other journal, and receiving more citations than any other AD-focused journal, delve into the detailed presentation. We wish to thank our authors and editors for their continued support! For questions or feedback contact us at: editorial@j-alz.com.

Your chance to win a copy by spreading awareness of JAD during September!

World Alzheimer's Month

September 2018

Every year in September across the globe, efforts are made to increase awareness of AD and dementia – and the ongoing research into the disease – during World Alzheimer's Month (WAM).

JAD, publishing more research papers per year on AD than any other journal, is advancing knowledge in the field. It continues to push for a diversity of approaches to AD, and its Editor-in-Chief George Perry is the key driver in this. He comments: "As well as therapeutic targets that fall well within the bounds of the amyloid hypothesis, some researchers are calling for an exploration of ideas that are beyond the mainstream.” (Read more about what Dr Perry has to say on that topic here.) We are calling on the JAD community to spread awareness of JAD this month, leading up to World Alzheimer's Day on September 21.

Share & Win!

Spread the word about JAD by any of the means outlined below and you will be entered for a chance to win a copy of the new book Alzheimer's Disease: New Beginnings. This book looks to the future and the journey that lies ahead for AD research. It highlights the latest insights in AD research and, specifically, in areas in which major advances have been made and that are expected to impact future research approaches. You can read more about the book here.

How to Enter
Our competition in support of #WAM18 will be shared on JAD's Facebook and Twitter. To enter:
* Go to JAD's timeline on Facebook and "like" the competition post from September 3; or
* Retweet JAD's post about it from the journal's Twitter stream; or
* Sign up to the newsletter here; or
* Share this newsletter with your colleagues and encourage them to sign up (and let us know by clicking the link below)

Deadline: September 21

Take part and tell us about it!
