Drugs & Aging delivers essential information on the most important aspects of drug therapy to researchers and healthcare professionals involved in the care of older patients.

Through a program of reviews and original research articles, the journal addresses major issues relating to drug therapy in older adults, including the management of specific diseases or disorders, particularly those associated with aging, age-related physiological changes impacting drug therapy, and issues related to drug utilization and prescribing.

Drugs & Aging offers a range of additional features designed to increase the visibility, readership and educational value of the journal’s content. Each article is accompanied by a Key Points summary, giving a time-efficient overview of the content to a wide readership. Articles may be accompanied by plain language summaries to assist readers who have some knowledge of, but not in-depth expertise in, the area to understand the scientific content and overall implications of the article. The journal also provides the option to include various types of digital features including animated abstracts, video abstracts, slide decks, audio slides, instructional videos, infographics, podcasts and animations. All additional features are peer reviewed to the same high standard as the article itself. Peer review is conducted using Editorial Manager®, supported by a database of international experts. This database is shared with other Adis journals.
