Issue 4/2018 – Editorial

Dear Readers, Authors, Reviewers and Editorial Board Members, we are pleased to present you the XII issue of the Journal of Gerontology and Geriatrics. This is the last Issue published in 2018, and I feel very satisfied of these three years of editorial experience.

The JGG is undergoing important developments and improving its performances: incoming manuscripts are increasing, and the journal acquired international visibility.

According to this, I am very delighted to announce that the JGG has been recently included in the Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI) by Clarivate Analytics, accessible through the Web of Sciences.

This means that the JGG has passed initial editorial evaluation and can continue to be considered for inclusion in products such as Science Citation Index Expanded (SCIE), which has rigorous evaluation processes and selection criteria.

This issue hosts nineteen manuscripts collected in a Special entitled “Urologic problems in elderly patients”. I am very grateful to Riccardo Autorino (Virginia Commonwealth University), who guest edited this Special Issue. We are thankful to all the Authors and we invite all the Readers to consider these contributions as their reference bibliography. We would like to take this opportunity to wish you a Wonderful 2019!
