The Gerontology Wiki is a collaborative encyclopedia about Gerontology, the study of human aging and longevity, with a focus for everything related to Supercentenarians, Longevity, and Oldest People. The wiki format allows anyone to create or edit any article, subject to the rules and guidelines, so we can all work together to create a comprehensive encyclopedia on gerontology. Check out the Help pages to get started!

The Gerontology Wiki was founded in 2007 by Keith Cody.

Robert Douglas Young, the Senior Consultant for Gerontology for Guinness World Records (since 2005) and the Director of the Gerontology Research Group's Supercentenarian Research and Database Division (since 2015), joined the Gerontology Wiki in 2007 and has been appointed the "Chief Bureaucrat" to manage the Gerontology Wiki in terms of policy and administration. The chief purpose of the Gerontology Wiki is to serve as a Wikipedia-style encyclopedia that operates similar to Wikipedia, but whose content focuses on the general area of "gerontology", with a special focus on Supercentenarians. The Gerontology Wiki has experienced tremendous growth in the last few years and now shows up highly ranked in search results for Google search.

Waclaw Jan Kroczek, the GRG Administator for Case Validation (since 2018) as well as GRG Correspondent for Poland (since 2013) and Nordic Countries (since 2023) has developed the modern GRG website in order to fulfill the challenges of ever changing world and monitor the growing global supercentenarian population. The modern upgraded GRG website can be viewed under this link: https://www.grg-supercentenarians.org/. In 2023 Waclaw Jan Kroczek has also been appointed "Chief Bureaucrat" at the Gerontology Wiki.

As a "crowdsourced" Wiki, all are allowed to contribute to the Gerontology Wiki, so long as the rules and policies of the Gerontology Wiki are properly followed. These involve the usage of trusted sources which include independent non-profit scientific organizations such as International Database on Longevity, Okinawa Centenarian Study, New England Centenarian Study, Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research, and Gerontology Research Group. Robert Young has to assist him a dedicated team of Gerontology Wiki Admins who coordinate the growth and maintenance of the Gerontology Wiki on a daily basis.
