Perspectives on Integrative Medicine (Perspect Integr Med: PIM) is the official, open access journal of Jaseng Medical Foundation, a non-profit medical organization dedicated to academic research and philanthropy. The journal is a triannual, peer-reviewed publication of high-quality academic, pre-clinical, and clinical research on complementary and integrative medicine and related therapies.

The journal promotes the scientific validation of complementary medicine therapies in an integrative medicine approach to wellness, wherein complementary and conventional medicine are used in combination. Complementary medicine may include physical practices (acupuncture, pharmacopuncture, chuna, tuina, osteopathy, manual therapy, yoga, and tai chi), natural products (e.g., naturopathic medicine, herbal medicine, medicinal plants, and dietary supplements), and mindfulness-based therapy (e.g., cognitive therapy and mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR)), whilst conventional medicine includes pharmacological drugs, surgery, and physical rehabilitation.

The aim of this journal is to promote the communication of biomedical scientific research on complementary medicine integrative therapies to bridge the gap between scientific research and clinical practice.

The content of the journal reflects the interests of clinicians and researchers involved in all areas of medicine. The research should be scientifically rigorous and presented in the form of an original article, a literature review, short communication, protocols, or case reports, and may cover retrospective, qualitative, or practice-based research networks. The journal regularly publishes articles with continuing medical education (CME) credits. Studies involving animal models or artificial intelligence are also within the scope of this journal.

PIM publishes tri-annually (at the end of February, June, and October), and covers original articles, review articles, short communications, protocols, case reports, commentaries, and letters to the editor.
