This article presents a brief description of the specialty chiropractic groups that are affiliated with the Journal of Chiropractic Medicine: American Academy of Chiropractic Physicians (AACP), The American Chiropractic Board of Sports Physicians (ACBSP), The College on Forensic Sciences (CFS), and The International Academy of Chiropractic Neurology (IACN), and the Council on Diagnostic Imaging (CDI).
The Journal of Chiropractic Medicine (JCM) is a peer-reviewed journal dedicated to disseminating scientific and peer-reviewed information to the chiropractic profession. The JCM focuses on providing practical information for the practicing doctor of chiropractic and favors case reports, reviews of the literature, and pragmatic studies. Since the journal began in 2002, it has continued to grow and increase in quality and readership. The JCM contents are indexed in PubMed, the Cumulative Index to Nursing and Allied Health Literature, the Manual Alternative and Natural Therapy Index System, and the Index to the Chiropractic Literature and thus are accessed by a broad readership.
The JCM serves a variety of specialty groups in the chiropractic profession—from primary care and sports medicine to forensic sciences, neurology, and diagnostic imaging. The American Academy of Chiropractic Physicians (AACP) was the first professional society affiliated with the JCM, beginning in 2002. Updating our information from the previous notification,1 the American Chiropractic Board of Sports Physicians (ACBSP) began offering its members the JCM in 2007; the College on Forensic Sciences (CFS) included the JCM as a membership benefit in September 2009 and the International Academy of Chiropractic Neurology (IACN) in December 2009; and the American Chiropractic Association (ACA) Council of Diagnostic imaging (CDI) began offering the JCM as a membership benefit in December 2012. Each of these professional chiropractic societies offers valuable services and membership benefits.
