Application for Membership


Access to TWO fantastic online journals

Acupuncture in Medicine

Acupuncture in Medicine is a bi-monthly scientific and clinical journal aimed at Western trained physicians and other health professionals and uses the prevailing understanding of neurophysiology and anatomy to interpret the effects of acupuncture. The Journal largely restricts its published articles to this Western approach. Clinical reports of the effects of traditional acupuncture will be considered and theoretical aspects that are evidence based. AiM is owned by the British Medical Acupuncture Society (BMAS) and is published by BMJ.

Veterinary Record

Veterinary Record Case Reports aims to publish a high volume of cases in all disciplines so that veterinary professionals, researchers and others can easily find important information on both common and rare conditions. All articles are peer reviewed and copy edited before publication. ABVA members can also submit case reports for publication without having to purchase and individual fellowship number.
