Digital Chinese Medicine (DCM) is one of the two international TCM journals with a national level funding and the only one university-sponsored TCM journal which was included in the “The National STM Journals Promotion Plan”.

DCM aims at promoting the standardization, quantification, internationalization and digitization of traditional Chinese medicine so that it can be recognized by, and benefit more people worldwide.

DCM is right now 4 issues per year by printed format. But, except for printing version, we have massive e-pub ahead of print. DCM is a peer-reviewed academic journal, including but not limited in the research of best clinical practice, experimental evidences, original studies on acupoints and meridians, and natural herbs, the diagnostics technique based on modern science and technology, data mining on massive cases, combination of traditional medicine and internet of things, TCM renovation, theoretical exploration and creation, etc. 

To accomplish the goal, we are not only publishing a journal, but also are constructing a world-leading bilingual (English, Chinese) database that covers all areas of traditional Chinese medicine. The DCM platform (dcmhi.com) is not barely a publishing system, but the system of funding seeking and research cooperation, as well as getting any help you may need in the area of TCM. It also provides the possibility of conceiving new idea, new products and new technology. “Big data, big platform, and big application” is the eternal persuit of DCM.
