All articles published in the Journal, including perspectives, review, original articles, and short communications are the original content of the authors. eJTCM considers the Quality Control and the procedures for the preparation and characterization of herbal medicines, as well as the authentication of dietary supplements, as basic requirements to guarantee efficacy, safety and reproducibility in Traditional and Complementary Medicine. eJTCM encourages submissions which present observation and experimental investigation in translational and clinical studies, animal experiments, and in vivo/in vitro studies. Particular emphasis is given to the pathophysiological basis and the cellular-molecular mechanisms that underlie the beneficial effects of Traditional and Complementary Medicine.
