Journal of Evidence-Based Complementary & Alternative Medicine (formerly Complementary Health Practice Review) is an open access, interdisciplinary peer-reviewed biomedical journal publishing hypothesis-driven and evidence-based articles concerning observations or studies (both positive and negative) in all fields of healing practices encompassed by the terms complementary, alternative, and integrative medicine, including (but not limited to):
• mind-body medicine
• energy therapies
• homeopathic medicine
• dietary limitation and supplementation
• traditional Chinese medicine (herbalism and acupuncture)
• body manipulation and massage
Categories of articles include editorial comments, original articles (studies with either positive or negative results), brief communications (observations or case reports that generate hypotheses for testing), topical reviews, historical vignettes, correspondence, and book reviews.
From January 2017, Journal of Evidence-Based Complementary & Alternative Medicine (JEBCAM) will publish all new content open access. Therefore, articles first submitted on or after August 8th, 2016 will be subject to an open access article processing charge (APC), if accepted after peer review. An introductory APC of $600 USD, discounted from the full rate of $1,200 USD, is available for a limited time. Authors paying the APC will enjoy the benefits of immediate, full open access publishing and will utilize one of the Creative Commons licenses which enable them to retain copyright.
