Contemporary Expertise in Homeopathy

Our journal must keep pace with contemporary expertise and active participation in the field of homeopathy, particularly in its clinical and research development. A key facet of any academic journal is the individual and collective membership of its Editorial Advisory Board (EAB), who help to ensure a rich supply of current ideas, articles and peer-reviewer input. We have recently reviewed and updated Homeopathy's EAB team, the first time we have done so since 2019.

In enhancing its overall specialist knowledge base, research activity and relevant geographic spread, the journal is welcoming 15 new EAB members: Harleen Kaur, Munmun Koley, Praveen Oberai, Subhranil Saha, Simran Tandon (India), Patrízia Ana Bricarello, Cidéli Coelho, Elizabeth C. Perez Hurtado (Brazil), Jean Duckworth, Esther van der Werf, Elizabeth Thompson (UK), Maria Olga Kokornaczyk, Sandra Würtenberger (Switzerland), Joyce Frye (USA), and José Manuel Mazón-Suástegui (Mexico). Five individuals are departing from the EAB after many years of committed contribution to the journal: Philippe Belon, Brian Berman, Martin Chaplin, Klaus Linde and Lionel Milgrom.

Not untypically, the current issue of Homeopathy includes contributions from amongst its EAB membership, with articles in both fundamental and clinical research. The former add further evidence for physical or biological effects of homeopathic medicines in the laboratory setting,[1] [2] [3] while the latter report in vivo effects of homeopathy from clinical trials in humans[4] [5] and, notably, in penguins.[6] The final article is a case report of a woman who received treatment for two concurrent clinical complaints using individualised homeopathic medicine.[7]
