Clinical Research in Geriatrics (CRG) supports clinical and translational research on health and disease in the aged, and research on aging over the human life span, including its relationships to health outcomes. CRG include translational research for the development of new interventions for age-related conditions, prevention and treatment of multiple chronic conditions in the elderly, and studies that help to promote evidenced based geriatric care and inform policies affecting older adults.
Clinical Research in Geriatrics (CRG) is a Peer-reviewed scientific journal that publishes original articles, critical reviews, research notes and short communications in the areas of the health and healthcare of elderly people including issues regarding the healthcare systems and policies. Our aim is to encourage scientists to publish their experimental and theoretical results in as much detail as possible. There is no restriction on the length of the papers. The full experimental details must be provided so that the results can be reproduced.
This journal is an open access journal which provides immediate, worldwide, boundary-free access to the full content of every distributed article without charging readers or their institutions for access. Readers are given the authorization to read, circulate, copy, print, download, search, or link to the full texts of all articles in CRG.
Alcrut is a self-reliance organization and does not receive any funding neither from government nor private sectors. Hence, the management of the journal is exclusively supported by the article processing fees received from authors. Therefore, we ask the authors, institutions, funding agencies to pay the article processing charges in order to facilitate our publication process. Our article processing charges are quite flexible compared to many other emerging publishers and we provide wide range of offers to the authors from the middle income and low-income countries. Authors will be sent an invoice along with the galley proof of the accepted article. Then authors could pay the processing charges either through the online payment portal by using credit card or debit card and or can transfer the APC to the publisher's account furnished in an invoice as an open access publishers. Alcrut does not charge the authors for Manuscript submission fee and we only charge them for Article processing Charges.
Alcrut publications appear in a wide range of abstracting and indexing databases. Different journals are listed in different databases. See our dedicated abstracting and indexing page for a detailed breakdown of journals per repository.
Peer-Review Policy: Peer review process is designed to assess the validity, quality and originality of articles for publication. Reviewers play an essential role in validating the research submitted and providing constructive feedback to the editors and authors. You can find further more details about the process here.
Our editors evaluate submitted manuscripts, and those that warrant further consideration are sent out for in-depth review. Manuscripts require a minimum of two reviews to be accepted. Alcrut does not accept pre-submission inquiries or re-submission of manuscripts that have already been rejected for reasons related to novelty or impact. If authors disagree with a reject decision made on the basis of serious reviewer error on a technical point, they can appeal the decision by submitting a formal appeal and must submit the appeals within four weeks of decision date to be considered. Post that, editors will review the appeals and then decide on appropriate steps. Responses to reviews and revised manuscripts will not be considered with appeals unless requested by editors. Alcrut uses a highly selective peer review process drawing from and beyond the full pool of reviewers.
Even in cases where editors did not invite re-submission, some authors ask the editors to reconsider a rejection decision. These are considered appeals, which, by policy, must take second place to the normal workload. Although we strive to provide a decision on an appeal within 14 days, on some occasions it may take several weeks. Decisions are reversed on appeal only if the editors are convinced that the original decision was made in error or critical new information or data has been added. If the manuscript was reviewed, the editor may also discuss the appeal with one or more of the referees and or even obtain advice from an additional referee. If the manuscript was not reviewed, the editor may solicit informal opinions from one or more external experts. In case, if Authors who wish to submit their manuscript elsewhere, they must first withdraw their appeal with us while it is under appeal at our journal.
