Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

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.

Four were written for nurses and one focused on medical aspects of dementia and cognitive impairment. A panel of five reviewers from three states across Australia assisted with reading the books, rating them on a range of criteria, and choosing the winner. The winner of the Australasian Journal on Ageing book prize this year was the second edition of a book edited by Rhonda Nay and Sally Garratt: Nay R, Garratt S. Nursing older people: Issues and innovations. Sydney: Churchill Livingstone, 2004. The reviewing panel saw this substantial book as a valuable resource, not only for undergraduate nurses, but also for aged care clinicians from various professional backgrounds. Major strengths include its recognition of the complexity of nursing older people and its coverage of a wealth of information. The Australasian Journal on Ageing book prize was announced at the November Annual General Meeting of the Australian Association of Gerontology, in Melbourne. Congratulations to Rhonda Nay and Sally Garratt, and to their colleagues who contributed chapters to the book. Many thanks to the reviewers who assisted with the process of selecting the prize winner. Yvonne Wells Associate Editor, Book Reviews
