    Aims and Scope


    Biogerontology has now developed a solid scientific base with respect to the understanding of the phenomenon of aging. A spectrum of new and innovative strategies and approaches are being increasingly applied to modulate the process of aging at the level of cells, tissues, organs and organisms. Biogerontology represents this step in research which aims primarily at achieving healthy old age accompanied by improved longevity. The focus is on attempts to understand, prevent, cure or minimize age-related impairments.

    The science of healthy old age requires its own platform to bring forward new ideas, and to encourage the scientific publication of innovative and bold experimental manipulations in this regard.

    Biogerontology therefore provides a peer-reviewed forum for publishing original research data, new ideas and discussions about:

    Modulating the aging process by physical, chemical and biological means, including transgenic and knockout organisms;
    Cell culture systems to develop new approaches and health care products for maintaining and/or recovering the lost biochemical functions;
    Immunology, autoimmunity and infection in aging;
    Vertebrates, invertebrates, micro-organisms and plants for experimental studies on genetic determinants of aging and longevity;
    Biodemography and theoretical models linking aging and survival kinetics.

    Biogerontology will publish:

    original research reports;
    reviews, hypotheses, new methods and interviews;
    special issues on specific topics relating to aging, health and longevity.

Springer may use the article in whole or in part in electronic form, such as use in databases or data networks for display, print or download to stationary or portable devices. This includes interactive and multimedia use and the right to alter the article to the extent necessary for such use.

    Authors may self-archive the Author's accepted manuscript of their articles on their own websites. Authors may also deposit this version of the article in any repository, provided it is only made publicly available 12 months after official publication or later. He/she may not use the publisher's version (the final article), which is posted on SpringerLink and other Springer websites, for the purpose of self-archiving or deposit. Furthermore, the Author may only post his/her version provided acknowledgement is given to the original source of publication and a link is inserted to the published article on Springer's website. The link must be accompanied by the following text: "The final publication is available at link.springer.com".

    Prior versions of the article published on non-commercial pre-print servers like arXiv.org can remain on these servers and/or can be updated with Author's accepted version. The final published version (in pdf or html/xml format) cannot be used for this purpose. Acknowledgement needs to be given to the final publication and a link must be inserted to the published article on Springer's website, accompanied by the text "The final publication is available at link.springer.com". Author retains the right to use his/her article for his/her further scientific career by including the final published journal article in other publications such as dissertations and postdoctoral qualifications provided acknowledgement is given to the original source of publication.

    Author is requested to use the appropriate DOI for the article. Articles disseminated via link.springer.com are indexed, abstracted and referenced by many abstracting and information services, bibliographic networks, subscription agencies, library networks, and consortia.
