Alzheimer's & Dementia: Journal of the Alzheimer's Association aims to bridge knowledge gaps separating traditional fields of dementia research by covering the entire spectrum from basic science to clinical trials and social and behavioral investigations.
The journal provides a forum for rapid communication of new findings and ideas; disseminating knowledge necessary for optimal translation of research findings into practical application and interventions; increasing knowledge in diverse disciplines to promote early detection, diagnosis and/or interventions; identifying promising new directions of research; and providing the scientific impetus for new initiatives.
Alzheimer's & Dementia: Diagnosis, Assessment & Disease Monitoring concentrates on the discovery, development, and validation of assays, instruments, and technologies with the potential to facilitate accurate detection of dementia in its various forms and stages.
