PHILADELPHIA, May 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Official journal of the American Association for Geriatric Psychiatry

Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, announces that it has entered into an agreement with the American Association for Geriatric Psychiatry (AAGP) to publish The American Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry (AJGP) beginning in January 2013.

"We are extremely pleased to be entering into this relationship with Elsevier," commented Chris M. deVries, Chief Executive Officer/Executive Vice President of the American Association for Geriatric Psychiatry. "The Journal serves as a primary vehicle for disseminating critical information to our national - and global - community of clinicians, educators, and researchers in the rapidly evolving fields of geriatric psychiatry and mental health. Therefore we are enthusiastic about making our content more readily accessible and discoverable through Elsevier's innovative tools, whether readers are at work, at home, or on the go."

AJGP is the authoritative source of information for the rapidly developing field of geriatric psychiatry. Each monthly issue contains peer-reviewed articles on the diagnosis and classification of psychiatric disorders in later life, epidemiological and biological correlates of mental health of older adults, and psychopharmacology and other somatic treatments. With a 3.566 Impact Factor it ranks in the top third of both the Psychiatry and Geriatrics/Gerontology categories according to Thomson Reuters' Journal Citation Reports®.

The decision to publish with Elsevier was the result of a meticulous review process. According to Editor-in-Chief Dilip V. Jeste, MD, "Key factors driving our decision were the advantages offered by Elsevier's global reach and its expertise in all phases of the publishing process. We anticipate that AJGP's position as the premier journal devoted specifically to geriatric psychiatry will be strengthened through this new association, benefiting our authors, editors, reviewers, and ultimately our readership."
