Welcome to website of the Australian Journal of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine (AJACM).

The AJACM is the official journal of the Australian Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine Association Ltd. It is Australia's paramount peer-reviewed journal for the acupuncture and Chinese medicine profession.

AJACM seeks to foster intellectual endeavour and academic exchange about the research and clinical practice of acupuncture and Chinese medicine, and to promote quality in the provision of acupuncture and Chinese medicine clinical services.

Its primary focus is the publication of peer-reviewed articles that enhance quality and diversity in acupuncture and Chinese medicine clinical practice and research, and stimulate the exchange of ideas about clinical practice and the role of acupuncture and Chinese medicine in contemporary health care. AJACM publishes original research articles, general papers, reviews, case reports and case series and also includes general articles that are relevant to the Journal's objectives.

The first issue of AJACM was published in 2006 and it has been published biannually since 2007.
