Meridians: The Journal of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine is the official journal of the American Society for Acupuncturists (ASA).  As a Medline-compliant journal, we publish peer reviewed scientific articles that focus on the professional practice of acupuncture and Oriental medicine. The journal is indexed in EBSCO's international Academic Search database and CINAHL, which provides broad content coverage for a wide number of nursing specialties. 


Meridians: JAOM welcomes papers from published and first-time authors on aspects of acupuncture and Oriental medicine, including original research, clinical practice, case reports, meta-analyses, evidence-based and integrative medicine, literature reviews, business practice, policy, nomenclature, translations and related disciplines. 

   Please read our Author Guidelines for complete submission information.
