The American Association of Integrative Medicine’s acclaimed journal is going from online to print starting this spring in response to growth.
Feb. 17, 2010, Springfield, MO – The American Association of Integrative Medicine, the medical society for the 21st century, has announced that its widely-received flagship periodical, the Journal of the American Association of Integrative Medicine, will become a print publication starting with its spring 2010 issue. Its mission is to provide a forum for integrative medicine professionals through articles, research, opinion pieces and news.
“Most magazines today are going from print to online rather than the other way around,” said Dr. Zhaoming Chen, chief spokesman and executive board chairman for the American Association of Integrative Medicine (AAIM). “We are doing the opposite because of tremendous, increased demand in the healthcare industry for integrative medicine information.”
To date, there are only a handful of publications worldwide that are dedicated to bridging the gap between alternative and traditional medicine. The Journal of the American Association of Integrative Medicine originally made its debut in 2007 as an online publication and has since achieved worldwide distribution. With this change in format, the journal will now be accepting advertising from related companies. It will continue to accept article contributions from complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) providers.
