Short Description

Traditional South Asian Medicine (previously Journal of the European Âyurvedic Society) is a scholarly journal devoted primarily to the study of all aspects of traditional South Asian medical systems, particularly, but not exclusively, the Ayurvedic tradition. It features not only historical and philological studies, but also such as concern themselves with living traditions, including their interaction with non-South Asian medical traditions both modern and pre-modern, and their practical application. The journal is, however, also open to research on matters relating to the human body or issues of health and hygiene in traditional South Asia even when not placed within the context of a particular medical system. Since the journal’s aim is to publish only contributions of a very high standard, it does not appear regularly, but only when enough contributions of such standard justifying the publication of a new issue have come together. No comparable journal with the characteristics mentioned is currently being published; as such, Traditional South Asian Medicine is unique.
