Ayurveda, evidence-base and scientific rigor.
A very interesting and thought provoking article on the importance of Ayurvedic research, with a focus on the need to adopt intercultural standards for research, for the appropriate methodology and protocols. The author stresses that doing research based completely on methods in modern science will not work; Ayurveda does need certain adaptations, based on the very nature of its traditional bases. As Editor in Chief of the Journal, he stresses that every effort will be made, to guide authors to submit articles with scientific rigor; and there is a need for time lag between submission and acceptance, to ensure high quality of articles.
