  Scope of the journal

The Tzu Chi Medical Journal (TCMJ) is the peer-reviewed and open access publication of the Buddhist Compassion Relief Tzu Chi Foundation. The mission of the TCMJ is to provide practical, timely, and relevant clinical and basic science information to physicians and researchers practicing in Taiwan and worldwide. Scientific papers of original research on clinical medicine and basic science, case reports, clinical pathological pages and review articles are included in this journal. In addition, any scope that can improve diagnosis and treatment in clinical medicine and advance basic research, and special features for continuing medical education (CME) are also covered in the TCMJ. TCMJ is published quarterly by Elsevier and indexed in EMBASE, Scopus, ScienceDirect, SIIC Data Bases and CAS. TCMJ was launched in 1989. Although TCMJ is a regional journal, the submission is not limited to Taiwan. We have received submission from not only from the Asia-pacific region but also some other countries worldwide. The editorial board covers experts of all major medical fields from Taiwan and other countries.

All papers considered for publication in TCMJ are reviewed by one associate editor and two to three reviewers. With strict review policy, only 60% of high quality articles can be accepted for publishing in TCMJ. We have previously published several important articles related to the specific disease patterns in Asian Pacific region such as tuberculosis, gout, and aboriginal alcoholism related diseases. These articles are worthy to be refereed. We have also expanded the scope of TCMJ to cover vegetarian, medical education, medical ethics, medical legal, clinical practice and therapeutics, image in clinical medicine and medical economic commentaries. TCMJ is an useful resource for clinicians, researchers, as well as the medical professionals.

Review articles, Original articles, Case reports, Medical ethics, Medical education, Clinical Practice & therapeutics, Images in clinical medicine and Pathology pages are considered for publication.
