About Us

After serving as editor in chief for The American Acupuncturist for three years, Jennifer A. M. Stone, LAc, assisted by managing editor Lynn Eder, MFA, produced the first issue of Meridians: The Journal of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine in fall 2014. This peer reviewed quarterly publication, geared to all LAcs and herbalists, has continued to publish four times per year without fail.

As both a clinician and a published researcher, along with presenting first rate research articles for the profession, Jen saw the need to share information on how to write these research pieces for a peer reviewed journal as well as address the varied interests of LAcs in the field. As well as case reports and original research, the journal includes Clinical Pearls, book reviews on new publications, opinions on relevant topics in complementary medicine, reports on conferences, and a variety of “how to” resources for clinicians and researchers. AOM students are especially invited to explore these resources.

Assisted by a talented but small staff, the journal continues to play a vital part in the development of this profession’s role in health care today. From the eye-catching cover photos to the easy to navigate layout, the journal encourages readers to delve into its contents now—and then again.
