In 1967, Gerontologia Clinicia became the official journal of the British Geriatrics Society under the joint editorship of A N Exton-Smith and E Woodford Williams. In the early 70s, it was felt there was a firm foundation for the establishment of a British journal devoted to geriatrics and gerontology and in February 1972 the first issue of Age and Ageing was published by Bailliere Tindall under the joint editorship of A N Exton-Smith and H M Hodkinson.
Age and Ageing is owned by the Society and, since 1989, has been published by Oxford University Press. At present, it is managed by the Editor and an Editorial Board and the commercial and financial aspects are overseen by a Supervisory Board chaired by the President of the BGS.
