Welcome readers I am pleased and honored to write this Editorial Note for the first issue of the Journal of Traditional and Complementary Medicine (JTCM) of 2015, now being published through Elsevier. This publishing transition signifies an elevation of aims and focus for JTCM. JTCM encompasses perspectives from a variety of traditional and complementary approaches to medicine, including traditional medicine, preventive herbal medicine, and dietary therapy. JTCM endeavors to publish the highest quality research and seeks to provide readers with a global platform for informed discussion of traditional and complementary medical science. JTCM appreciates and encompasses perspectives from Eastern and Western medical cultures, two major approaches which have long been applied to the treating and curing of disease. Eastern traditional medicine includes traditional Chinese medicine, Ayurvedic medicine, Japanese Kampo medicine, Korean medicine, Sri Lankan traditional medicine, Thai traditional medicine, Islamic medicine, Oriental medicine, African medicine, and others. Western traditional medicine includes British herbal medicine, traditional German herbal medicine, traditional Roman medicine, European herbal medicine, Aboriginal/traditional medicine in

America, and others. JTCM welcomes articles from all medical perspectives, and encourages articles which present observations and experimental investigation in clinical studies, animal experiments, and in vivo/in vitro studies relating to our scope. I believe JTCM can make significant contributions to global scientific understanding of traditional medicine and of the role that traditional medicine can play in improving quality of life and promoting healthy lifestyles. I hope you will find the viewpoints contained within JTCM to be informative and useful, and that you will support JTCM by submitting your valuable research to be shared with the world. Your contributions make JTCM an outstanding platform for communication and research about Eastern and Western traditional and complementary medical science. Lee-Yan Sheen, Editor-in-Chief
