Journal

Journal CoverAsian Medicine: Tradition and Modernity is a multidisciplinary journal aimed at researchers and practitioners of Asian medicine in Asia as well as in Western countries. It makes available in one single publication academic essays that explore the historical, anthropological, sociological and philological dimensions of Asian medicine as well as practice reports from clinicians based in Asia and in Western countries.

With the recent upsurge of interest in non-Western alternative approaches to health care, Asian Medicine: Tradition and Modernity will be of relevance to those studying the modifications and adaptations of traditional medical systems on their journey to non-Asian settings. It will also be relevant to those who wish to learn more about the traditional background and practice of Asian medicine within its countries of origin. On account of its appeal to scholars from a range of academic backgrounds (such as history, anthropology, philology, sociology, archaeology) as well as to practitioners based in Asia and in Western medical institutions and alternative health care settings, the journal constitutes a unique resource for both scholarly and clinically focused institutions.

Journal Access for Members

We are in process of setting up new arrangements with Brill for members’ access to the journal. Later in 2017, members of IASTAM will receive free online access to all past and present issues of the journal via the Brill website. Non-members will have free access to past issues from five years after the date of publication, which will become open access to the general public. Individual and institutional memberships, including electronic and/or print access, will remain available via Brill’s Asian Medicine web page.
