Why Case Reports in Homeopathy?
A well-presented homeopathic case report provides important and detailed information about an individual. Case reports serve as an important evidence-based instrument. A good case report may provide variety and interest, giving a degree of lightness to an otherwise turgid publication. It is capable of stimulating the desire to value the uncommon symptoms and prescription and pass on the information gained to a wider audience.
Case reports educate clinicians about the clinical features, diagnosis, investigation, and/or the treatment of unusual problems or unreported presentations of known clinical conditions. They also provide information on errors in diagnosis, previously unreported adverse reactions to a treatment, and unanticipated beneficial responses to a treatment (Alwi, 2007 ; Kidd & Hubbard , 2007). On the other hand, they also aid in hypothesis generation which can be translated to better clinical research designs and vice versa.
Why Journal of Case Studies in Homeopathy?
Although a number of homeopathic journals publish case reports, but there exists a constraint of space due to which these reports tend to lose importance. Also, case reports are considered to be of low importance (as per the pyramid of evidence level) therefore, their citations tend to be low. There has been a strong need for journals specifically devoted to these valuable reports.Journal of Case Studies in Homeopathy (JCSH) fills this void.
