Announcement

Applegate Headshot

The Journal of the American Geriatrics Society welcomes William B. Applegate, MD, MPH, MACP, AGSF as Editor-in-Chief as of the July 2016 issue. Dr. Applegate succeeds Thomas T. Yoshikawa, MD, AGSF, who served the journal with excellence as Editor for 16 years.

Dr. Applegate is a leading figure at Wake Forest School of Medicine and a veteran geriatrics researcher, author and editor. His strong experience in research and publishing inspires the basis of a clear strategic plan for JAGS that includes maintaining its position as a world leader in the dissemination of high quality aging clinical science, and a national leader in dissemination of innovative health policy issues and care delivery models affecting clinical care of older persons.

In addition to maintaining JAGS as the premier title in its field, Dr. Applegate will develop the journal as an interdisciplinary forum for issues that drive geriatrics care forward globally.

A few of Dr. Applegate’s other priorities for JAGS include: the solicitation of high impact articles; increasing the speed to decision and publication of accepted articles; broadening the Journal’s involvement with readers and authors through social media activities and forums; and encouraging articles in areas like health policy/finance, transitions and long-term care, and the good/bad outcomes of care systems.

The strategic plan includes measures of success such as periodic reader survey results, and growth in downloads, global diversity of downloads, impact and immediacy factor.

Make sure to read Dr. Applegate’s first Editorial as Editor-in-Chief in the July issue of JAGS!
