Aims and Scope

Aging Pathobiology and Therapeutics (APT) was launched in 2019, is the official publication of the Gerontology Research Network and Geriatric Department of Guangzhou First People's Hosipital (CN).

APT is an open access, peer-reviewed, interdisciplinary journal available online, committed to disseminating information on the pathological progression and intervention of aging and age-related disease phenotypes in mammalian species, providing an opportunity to communicate pathology data as a primary scientific focus of aging. Scholars from the disciplines of geriatrics, gerontology, physiology, pathology, pharmacology, toxicology, biology, neuropsychology, psychology, nursing, epidemiology, and genetics are encouraged to contribute articles to the journal. Article types considered include research articles, reviews, editorials, case reports, opinions, letters, abstracts and drug therapeutic brief relating to research on Aging. 

The Editorial Board of the Journal comprises a dedicated team of local and international experts in the field of geriatrics, gerontology, physiology, pathology, pharmacology, biology, neuropsychology, psychology, nursing, epidemiology, and genetics. All members of the Editorial Board actively guide and set the direction of the journal. With the aim of promoting effective and accurate scientific information, an expert panel of referees constitutes the backbone of the peer-review process in evaluating the quality and content of manuscripts submitted for publication.

The topics covered by APT include but are not limited to the following fields:

  • Age-Related Disease (Alzheimer’s Disease, Parkinson’s Disease, Epilepsy, Dementia, Vascular Aging Diseases, Cardiovascular Disease, Diabetes and Hypertension, Cancer, Osteoarthritis, Osteoporosis, Contaract, Skin Aging, Immune Senescence, Depression and other age-related diseases.)
  • Geriatrics
  • Gerontology
  • Research on Anti-Aging Drugs
  • Drug Therapy in Older Adults
  • Novel Treatments for Age-Related Diseases
  • Mechanisms of Aging and Aging-Related Diseases
  • Pathogenesis of Age-Related Disease
  • Interventions to the Aging Process (Anti-aging Strategies, Pharmacologic and Psychosocial Interventions)
  • Biology of Aging
