Aims and Scope


The International Journal of Complementary Medicine (IJCO) aims to provide a platform for the publication of high-quality research and review articles on the use of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) in the prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and management of various diseases and health conditions. The journal welcomes original research articles, systematic reviews, meta-analyses, and case reports on the safety, efficacy, and mechanism of action of CAM modalities, such as acupuncture, herbal medicine, naturopathy, homeopathy, chiropractic, and traditional Chinese medicine, among others. The journal also aims to facilitate the exchange of knowledge and ideas among researchers, practitioners, policymakers, and the general public, and to promote the integration of CAM into mainstream healthcare systems. The journal's scope encompasses various fields of medicine, including but not limited to, oncology, neurology, cardiology, pediatrics, and geriatrics.


The journal covers a broad scope of topics including, but not exclusive to, basic and clinical research, public health and policy, traditional medicine, health education, integrative health, and ethical, legal, and regulatory issues. As such, IJCO provides a valuable resource for any practitioner, researcher or student of complementary and traditional medicines.


The scope of the IJCO includes, but is not limited to, the following topics:


Basic and clinical research on the effectiveness, safety, and mechanisms of action of CAM therapies

Comparative effectiveness studies of CAM therapies with conventional treatments

Economic evaluations of CAM therapies

Patient perspectives on CAM use and experiences with CAM practitioners

Ethical and legal issues related to CAM practice and research

Education and training of CAM practitioners and researchers

Policy and regulatory issues related to CAM

Global perspectives on CAM use and research



The journal strives to serve as a platform for professionals to share their knowledge and experiences and to collaborate on advancing the field of complementary medicine. We also welcome therapists, practitioners, and other health professionals to join us in this valuable endeavor. Our aim is to provide a Ultidisciplinary and collaborative view of the field of complementary and traditional medicine that encourages the advancement of high-quality and evidence-based research.


IJCO is published in both print and online formats. All articles published in the journal are freely available to the public and indexed in common search engines.
