Dr Hurria and the Editorial Board invite you to submit a manuscript online to the Journal of Geriatric Oncology.
September 13 - Journal of Geriatric Oncology now Indexed by PubMed/MEDLINE
We are delighted to announce that the Journal of Geriatric Oncology is indexed in PubMed/MEDLINE.
PubMed comprises more than 23 million article citations from the biomedical literature and is one of the most consulted databases for newly published literature worldwide. Coverage in PubMed will provide international visibility and recognition for JGO's authors and confirms the importance of the growing field of geriatric oncology to the wider medical community.
JGO is now covered in the world's premiere abstracting services, including PubMed/MEDLINE, the Scopus, Science Citation Index Expanded, Current Contents/Clinical Medicine, and the Journal Citation Reports.
August 13 - The Editorial Team for the Journal of Geriatric Oncology, SIOG’s official publication, is delighted to announce that the journal’s latest Impact Factor is 1.118.
This is JGO’s second Impact Factor. It measures citations made in 2012 to articles published in the journal in 2010 and 2011. The Editorial Team is excited that JGO’s second Impact Factor has increased and we look forward to working with our authors, reviewers and readers to continue this in the years ahead.
The Impact Factor is not the only measure of a journal’s impact and influence. One popular measure is the number of articles that are downloaded. During the last 12 months, July 2012 to July 2013, more than 16,000 papers have been downloaded from JGO worldwide, indicating a strong interest in the journal and in the field of geriatric oncology.
