    Acupuncture and Related Therapies is an international peer-reviewed journal that publishes high-quality research in acupuncture and its related therapies (e.g. neural therapy, laser therapy) as well as in all complementary therapies, including whole medical systems (e.g. TCM, naturopathy, Ayurveda), biological treatment methods (e.g. vitamins, biologics, other direct treatments), other biologically based practices (e.g. in nutrition, dietetics), meditative movement therapies (e.g. Qigong, Yoga, TaiChi), mind body interventions (e.g. Meditation), and body based methods (e.g. osteopathy, manual therapy).

    Acupuncture and Related Therapies publishes basic and clinical research papers, review papers, case studies and short communications. Special attention is given to educational contributions, we therefore welcome supplementary material such as videos of treatments, demonstrations and summarising lectures. Equally, papers of relevance to health care providers and policy makers are very welcome.

    Acupuncture and Related Therapies provides a forum for the dissemination and discussion of the findings of acupuncture research and clinical applications in a wide range of medical disciplines, including veterinary medicine. We believe in the principles of Evidence Based Medicine and seek to support clinical decision making by following Evidence Based Medicine. We especially welcome papers that contribute to further integrating conventional and complementary therapies into mainstream care.
