AMZ logoWelcome to Asian Medicine Zone, an open resource portal for practitioners, researchers, and scholars of Asian medicine. Thanks for visiting!

AMZ is an online portal for scholars, researchers, and practitioners of Asian medicine. This resource hosts a range of content, including primary sources in translation, abstracts of peer-reviewed articles, research blogs, and multimedia ethnographic materials such as photos, videos, and audio recordings by a wide range of scholar and practitioner contributors. The website enables users to to disseminate research in a range of text and multimedia formats, and to publicly discuss the intersections of scholarship, clinical research, and practice. Our intent is to encourage communication across diverse areas of the field, and we invite you to get involved as a contributor or reader.
