Gerontology and Geriatric Medicine
Gerontology and Geriatric Medicine (GGM) is an interdisciplinary, peer-reviewed, “Gold” open access journal from SAGE and sponsored by the Southern Gerontological Society. GGM publishes original research and review articles that span the spectrum of gerontology and geriatrics. The journal also welcomes letters to the editors, commentaries, book reviews, case reports, and more. This journal is a member of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE)
SGS members who submit work that is accepted for publication in GGM will receive a significant discount off of the publication fee. Here are some reasons to publish in GGM:
- Rigorous peer review of your research
- Multidisciplinary audience
- Open Access format, driving high visibility for maximum global exposure
- Prompt online publication
- Retention of copyright under creative commons license, allowing for greater flexibility in use of research.
- GGM is in the line for PubMed Central submission, so that will be a big benefit once accepted. Every paper will be searchable in PubMed.

Both SAGE and SGS recognize that open access journal publication questions are very common and hope to help answer those through the Frequently Asked Questions link here: https://us.sagepub.com/en-us/nam/faqs.
Journal of Applied Gerontology
A subscription to the Journal of Applied Gerontology (JAG) is included with your Southern Gerontological Society membership. JAG has been the official journal of SGS for over 30 years. JAG also serves an increasingly international readership. The Journal is devoted to the publication of articles that focus on research applications intended to improve the quality of life of older persons or to enhance our understanding of age-related issues that will eventually lead to such outcomes.
SGS Members receive free and full online access to issues from the last 10 volumes. The JAG website provides other useful features, such as article searches, full access to forthcoming articles (the OnlineFirst feature), and lists of most cited and most read articles.
Instructors should consider JAG articles for their courses and should suggest students use the site for research. Accessing and downloading JAG abstracts and articles supports the Journal and SGS.
Southern Gerontologist Newsletter
SGS members also receive The Southern Gerontologist, a quarterly newsletter that provides updates on applied projects, member activities and emerging issues, and informing members of new books and videos of interest to the field of aging. A sample issue of the newsletter is available for download in PDF format below.
