The Australian Council on the Ageing (COTA) commenced publication of the Australian Journal on Ageing (AJA)in early 1982 with the purpose of publishing important issues around ageing, reporting new ageing research developments and providing a forum for the exchange of views on ageing issues. Over a 30-year period, the AJA has evolved into an internationally recognised, peer-reviewed journal, publishing high-quality original work in gerontology and geriatric medicine under the stewardship of six editors, editorial teams and management committees. The journal is currently published on behalf of the AJA, Inc., with representation from The Australian and New Zealand Society for Geriatric Medicine (ANZSGM), the Australian Association of Gerontology (AAG), COTA and Aged and Community Services Australia (ACSA). Key events over the 30 years are explored later and summarised in Table 1.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
