Dementia: The International Journal of Social Research and Practice has proved an exciting step forward for the field of dementia care generally, and social research specifically. Dementia acts as a major forum for social research of direct relevance to improving the quality of life and quality of care for people with dementia and their families.

"Dementia will be of interest to all clinical disciplines involved in dementia research and the care of individuals with dementia and will be a valuable addition to many libraries and personal collections. It undoubtedly fills a gap among the mass of journals and will make a significant contribution to the effective dissemination of research and the development of high-quality clinical practice." Times Higher Education Supplement

"There is now increasing attention being given to psycho-social aspects of the dementias, with a better balance with biomedical factors being apparent. The journal Dementia has played a key role in developing good quality research in this domain, across a variety of disciplines. It has already contributed to developing and disseminating better practice and quality of care, as we have come to understand better the impact of social and psychological factors on people with dementia and their supporters." Bob Woods, Bangor University

"The field of social research and practice development in dementia care is growing rapidly. There is a compelling need for the key players - people living with dementia, their families and the range of professions supporting them - to work together towards realising the full potential of people living with dementia. The Journal provides just such a forum." Murna Downs, University of Bradford, UK

"Dementia research has come of age and recognizes the value of studying psychosocial aspects related to this disease. Dementia serves an important role in the dissemination of studies on how to improve quality of care and thereby quality of life in people with dementia and their informal carers. It also offers a forum for studies on care staff, which is increasingly important since many countries struggle with a lack of well-educated staff. Dementia helps academics, educators, students, professionals working in dementia care and policy makers in acquiring knowledge and valuation of psychosocial aspects related to dementia. It is a new but well-regarded journal, with an international perspective and a willingness to publish cross-boundary and innovative research which makes it essential reading." Prof. M. Vernooij-Dassen, Radboud University Medical Center Nijmegen, the Netherlands.
