Pacific College of Oriental Medicine is pleased to announce its partnership with the prestigious Journal of Chinese Medicine as a co-publisher and U.S. distributor of the publication. The Journal of Chinese Medicine has been the foremost English language journal dedicated to professional and student level information on the entire field of Chinese medicine for over 30 years.
The Journal of Chinese Medicine was founded in 1979 at a time when information on acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine was hard to come by. Early issues focused on presenting clear, detailed information on basic Chinese medicine theory on a level unavailable elsewhere in English.
Since then, the Journal - like the Chinese medicine profession in the West - has come a long way, and The Journal of Chinese Medicine is now recognized as the premier English language journal on all aspects of Chinese medicine.
The Journal of Chinese Medicine is published three times a year: February, June, and October.
Also included in your JCM subscription is the JCM online archive. The greatest resource of high-level academic and clinical information on Chinese medicine online, our Journal of Chinese Medicine archive contains:
- Over 700 PDF articles covering every aspect of traditional Chinese medicine published in the Journal of Chinese Medicine since 1979.
- Includes 1,300 abstracts from the Beijing-published Journal of Traditional Chinese Medicine (JTCM).
- Is continuously updated with each new issue of the JCM.
Subscribers will have twenty-four hour a day online access to the entire JCM archive.
