Aims and scope

  • Journal of Research in Traditional Medicine (JRTM) has clearly defined aims and objectives that position it as a valuable resource for traditional medicine.


    • Bridging the Knowledge Gap: JRTM seeks to create a bridge between the wisdom of traditional medicine practices and the evidence-based approach of modern science. This can lead to a more comprehensive understanding of health and healing.
    • Advancing the Field: The journal aims to propel the field of traditional medicine forward by encouraging rigorous research and development. This can lead to the integration of effective traditional therapies into mainstream healthcare.
    • Promoting Global Exchange: JRTM fosters collaboration and knowledge sharing between practitioners, researchers, and healthcare professionals from all over the world. This international exchange can accelerate progress in the field.


    • Publishing High-Quality Research: JRTM prioritises the publication of original research articles, reviews, and clinical trials that are conducted using strong scientific methods. This ensures the credibility and reliability of the information presented.
    • Encouraging Innovation: The journal aims to stimulate innovative research that delves into the mechanisms by which traditional medicine therapies work, their effectiveness, and potential safety concerns. This can lead to the development of new and improved treatments.
    • Disseminating Evidence-Based Knowledge: JRTM strives to make traditional medicine knowledge accessible to a global audience. It's worth checking their website or editorial guidelines to see if they offer specific open access initiatives, such as free online publication or article processing fee waivers for authors from developing countries.This promotes wider adoption and understanding of traditional medicine practices.

    Overall, JRTM plays a crucial role in bridging the gap between traditional and modern medicine, fostering scientific research, and promoting the global exchange of knowledge in this field.

    About the Journal

    Bridging Tradition and Science: Journal of Research in Traditional Medicine

    The Journal of Research in Traditional Medicine stands as a leading international platform for advancing the science of traditional medicine (TM). We bridge the gap between age-old practices and modern scientific inquiry, fostering a deeper understanding of the efficacy and mechanisms behind TM interventions. Presently the journal is published as an open access model with biannual issues. 

    A Diverse Landscape of TM Research

    The Journal welcomes a wide range of research methodologies, encompassing:

    • Clinical Research (including interdisciplinary approaches): We publish rigorous clinical trials evaluating the safety and effectiveness of TM for various health conditions.
    • Survey Studies: We explore patterns, prevalence, and perceptions surrounding the use of TM in diverse populations.
    • Systematic Reviews & Meta-analyses: We provide comprehensive syntheses of existing research to inform clinical practice and future research directions.
    • Review Articles: Our in-depth reviews offer critical appraisals of current knowledge within specific areas of TM research.
    • Monographs: We offer focused examinations of specific medicinal plants or traditional practices, including comprehensive data on chemistry, pharmacology, and clinical applications.
    • Educational Research: We explore advancements in pedagogy and curriculum development for effective dissemination and preservation of TM knowledge and practices.
    • Pharmacology Research: We delve into the pharmacological properties and mechanisms of action of natural products used in TM systems.
    • Pharmaceutical Standardisation: We address the critical issue of quality control and standardisation of herbal medicines to ensure safety and efficacy.
    • Pharmacognosy Research: We explore the botanical origin, chemical constituents, and biological activity of plants used in traditional medicine.
    • Case Reports/Series: We document compelling case studies that highlight the potential benefits of TM interventions for individual patients.
    • Short Communications: We facilitate the rapid dissemination of concise, groundbreaking research findings in the field of TM.
    • Proceedings and Book Reviews: We offer summaries of relevant conferences and critical reviews of impactful publications within the field.
    • Letters to the Editor: We encourage a dynamic forum for scholarly discourse and exchange of ideas on TM research.
    • Protocol Publications: We facilitate transparency in research methodology by publishing the protocols of original research works before data collection begins.

    The Power of TM Research

    TM research plays a pivotal role in:

    • Evidence-based Integration: By establishing the scientific foundation of TM practices, we can ensure their safe and effective integration into mainstream healthcare systems.
    • Improved Patient Care: Expanding the available treatment options with evidence-based TM interventions empowers healthcare professionals to provide more comprehensive and personalised care plans.
    • Promoting Public Health: Understanding the effectiveness of TM allows individuals to make informed choices about their health and well-being.

    The Journal fosters a vibrant community of researchers, practitioners, and healthcare professionals dedicated to advancing the science of traditional medicine. We invite you to submit your innovative research, engage in stimulating discussions, and contribute to the ongoing quest to unlock the full potential of traditional healing practices.
