Frontiers journals are at the top of citation and impact metrics
The rate of dementia is rising sharply.
More than 48 million people around the world are already affected, and this number is expected to double every 20 years, reaching 131 million in 2050. Caring for people with dementia presents profound emotional, physical, and financial challenges to families and societies. There is currently no known prevention, cure, or effective treatment for dementia.
Dementia is a specialty section of Frontiers in Neurology that aims to publish significant clinical, translational, and basic research findings on all of aspects of dementia due to neurodegenerative disease. We welcome papers on cognitive, behavioral, and motor features of dementia. Papers address the broad spectrum of dementia, including but not limited to the model care of people with dementia, caregiver health and wellbeing, concussion and chronic traumatic encephalopathy, molecular insights into pathological prediction and disease mechanism, biomarkers for diagnosis and progression, potential therapeutics and clinical trials, or the relation between inflammation and neurodegeneration. Other important areas will be prevention and healthy aging. Studies that create translational links between basic and clinical research will be particularly valued.

Dementia welcomes submissions of the following article types: Book Review, Case Report, Clinical Study Protocol, Clinical Trial, Correction, Editorial, General Commentary, Hypothesis and Theory, Methods, Mini Review, Opinion, Original Research, Perspective, Review, Specialty Grand Challenge and Systematic Review.
All manuscripts must be submitted directly to the section Dementia, where they are peer-reviewed by the Associate and Review Editors of the specialty section.
Articles published in the section Dementia will benefit from the Frontiers impact and tiering system after online publication. Authors of published original research with the highest impact, as judged democratically by the readers, will be invited by the Chief Editor to write a Frontiers Focused Review - a tier-climbing article. This is referred to as "democratic tiering". The author selection is based on article impact analytics of original research published in all Frontiers specialty journals and sections. Focused Reviews are centered on the original discovery, place it into a broader context, and aim to address the wider community across all of Neurology.
