Alzheimer's & Dementia®: The Journal of the Alzheimer's Association is a peer-reviewed journal that aims to bridge knowledge gaps separating traditional fields of dementia research by covering the entire spectrum from basic science to clinical trials and social and behavioral investigations.

- Rapid communication of new findings and ideas
- Disseminating knowledge necessary for optimal translation of research findings into practical application and interventions
- Increasing knowledge in diverse disciplines to promote early detection, diagnosis and/or interventions
- Identifying promising new directions of research
- Providing the scientific impetus for new initiatives
In July 2008, Alzheimer's & Dementia was accepted for indexing by MEDLINE, the premier bibliographic database of the National Library of Medicine, part of the National Institutes of Health. Inclusion in this prominent database signals recognition of the journal's scientific merit and contribution to the field of Alzheimer's research.
