When It Comes to Older Adults, Language Matters: Journal of the American Geriatrics Society Adopts Modified American Medical Association Style
from Wiley Online Library
You are probably wondering what ancient proverbs and a style change for the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society have in common. More than you might think, as we have learned from the American Geriatrics Society's work with the FrameWorks Institute and from the questions we frequently receive from our authors about how to refer to older adults. Simply put, language matters. With input from our publisher (Wiley) and our JAGS Executive Leadership Group, JAGS is reinforcing that truth by adopting the American Medical Association Manual of Style (presently in its 10th edition) as our guide for manuscript submissions, with some important modifications to how we want JAGS authors to write about older people.
