I founded The Journal of Chinese Medicine (JCM) in 1979. I’d just qualified as an acupuncture practitioner and only had a few patients so I had lots of spare time. It’s hard to imagine now, but in those far-flung days there was hardly any literature available in English – just a handful of poor quality books. The first dozen or so issues of the journal therefore included articles on the most basic theories of Chinese medicine, for example the functions of the zangfu, that simply weren’t available anywhere else.
Now, 37 years later, the journal is still going. We have published articles on almost every conceivable topic by the very best international authors/practitioners of our generation. The entire back content is now online, with thousands of abstracts and research reports available to subscribers. We think this now constitutes the broadest and deepest library of Chinese medicine on the internet.
