Our 11-year publishing history with the Canadian Geriatrics Journal

The Canadian Geriatrics Journal (CGJ), the official publication of the Canadian Geriatrics Society,  is a peer-reviewed and open access publication that is home for innovative aging research aimed at improving the health and the care provided to older persons residing in Canada and outside our borders. The CGJ is targeted to family physicians with training or an interest in the care of older persons, specialists in geriatric medicine, geriatric psychiatrists, and members of other health disciplines with a focus on gerontology.

We are happy to highlight some of the many accomplishments of the CGJ over our 11-year history:

2012CGJ is accepted for inclusion in PubMed and archived in PubMed Central.

2014CGJ implements Author Fees to help fund their open access publishing model. Multimed worked with the Editor to develop a fee description and policies, and also provided the functionality to support member and non-member rates with fees collected through the OJS platform.
