Journal Information

Nature Aging is a new online-only research journal publishing monthly from January 2021.

Aims & Scope

Nature Aging’s mission is to provide a unique multidisciplinary, unifying and highly visible publishing platform for the aging-research community. The journal is highly selective yet broad in its coverage, publishing research from across the entire spectrum of the field, ranging from the basic biology of aging to the impact of aging on society. The journal aims to foster interactions among different areas of this diverse field of research and to promote new and exciting ideas within and beyond the research community, to enable synergy and maximize scientific and societal impact.

Online Publication

Nature Aging is an exclusively online publication. This format enables us to publish articles as soon as they are ready, thus benefiting authors by allowing earlier publication dates and giving readers access to accepted papers several weeks before they would appear in a print issue. Papers published online are definitive and may be altered only through the publication of an addendum or correction, so authors should make every effort to ensure that the page proofs are correct.

Content Types

We publish a variety of content types, including Articles, Resources and Technical Reports, as well as Reviews, Perspectives and News & Views.
