Aims and Scope

The Journal of Acupuncture Research (JAR), founded in 1983, is the official journal of the Korean Acupuncture & Moxibustion Medicine Society. The journal, by providing a platform for dissemination and discussion, aims to strengthen the scientific understanding of the safety and effectiveness (efficacy) of acupuncture and related therapies in integrative medicine as well as in traditional medicine.

There is a long history of research on acupuncture. Work that takes into account historical empirical evidence, incorporating a broad evidence-based approach to acupuncture, and that is of interest and relevance to those involved in the practice, research, and education of acupuncture-based therapies in health care would be welcome.

JAR considers to publish editorials, original articles, review articles, short communications, case reports, and letters to the editor on:

  • Acupuncture (electroacupuncture, laser acupuncture, acupotomy, embedding therapy, acupuncture needling, the development of new acupuncture techniques, exploration of new acupoints)
  • moxibustion
  • cupping
  • pharmacopuncture (herbal acupuncture, acupoint injection, aqua-acupuncture)
  • the meridian system and other meridian-related studies (meridian diagnosis, acupressure, chuna/tuina, herbal medicine)
