Research articles are rapidly increasing in number of publications in the regular journals on geriatric psychiatry and it's allied fields since 1989. However, they were mainly on dementia, depression, epidemiology and neurocognitive functions. Widening of research areas, refinement of study methodology and multidisciplinary approach based on clinical data are needed. And of importance is submission to the popular foreign scientific journals listed in medical indexes, including the Current Contents, Excerpta Medica, Index Medicus, Medline, Psychological Abstracts, Science Citation Index, and Social Science Citation Index. In the case of home journals, a meticulous peer review system of manuscripts could improve the quality of research activities and of publications. All these activities would help us open a new horizon in the research into mental health problems in Korea.
