BOULDER, Colo., Jan. 18, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- When it comes to the field of natural medicine, it's not always easy to discern the credible and reliable research from the unsubstantiated claims. That's what led veteran healthcare publisher Karolyn A. Gazella, in partnership with the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians (http://www.naturopathic.org/), to launch Natural Medicine Journal (http://www.naturalmedicinejournal.com) in late 2009. Since then, Natural Medicine Journal has proven to be the go-to resource for cutting-edge information about integrative medicine.
The purpose of Natural Medicine Journal is to provide scientifically valid, patient-centered healthcare information to the medical community. A key aspect to achieving this goal is bridging the gap between the many related disciplines. "In order to disseminate information and build a cohesive community among those interested in the burgeoning field of natural medicine, we have built strong collaborative relationships with key integrative medical organizations," Gazella explains. "This ensures the important research and information our journal provides reaches beyond the naturopathic community."
To maintain quality of content, clinical articles go through a rigorous peer-review process before publication. "One essential way to guarantee the impartiality, thoroughness, and accuracy of Natural Medicine Journal's content is to put it in front of the discerning eyes of experts before it reaches our readers," explains Tina Kaczor, ND, FABNO, the journal's medical editor.
Another key to the journal's high-quality content is its extensive editorial board. With 45 members from a wide variety of disciplines, Natural Medicine Journal benefits from the input, expertise, and oversight of many of the foremost leaders in integrative medicine.
In keeping with the goal of broad dissemination of trustworthy, peer-reviewed natural medicine information, Natural Medicine Journal has always been and will continue to be a free publication. To receive the journal via email each month, sign up at (http://www.naturalmedicinejournal.com). This open-access website also makes all past content available online.
