Welcome to GJRMI
Research and Development forms the basic tool for all sciences in order to keep
up to the standards of fast changing lifestyle. R&D in the field of Medicinal plants
has a niche for itself, which is fast growing and the huge potential demands for
it will be in vogue, till the last life pulsates on this planet. WHO describes that
still 80% of the world population depends on Herbal Medicine, which implies that
the same number of research & development works also prevail. Every Nation has got
its own potential to produce different groups of Medicinal plant species, sadly
many nations have not utilized their potentials to give the needed output as per
When this is the case in reality, there are also some aspects to be concentrated,
like conservation of Medicinal plants as many plant species are being over exploited,
which draws the number of plants featuring in the Red list on a hike.
The guesstimates show that the cost pertaining to conservation can really be never
met with by the developing countries especially on a large scale. Hence, the existing
situation has to be accepted for instance as a part of evolution & change is the
rule of Nature, paving way for new plant species which needs to be explored meanwhile,
which is a part of the researchers.
On the other end Traditional Medicines keep flourishing in specific Geographical
regions, and most of these sciences lacks the knowledge of what happens at the next
door. There are a number of branches in science, which does and will continue to
do research on a large scale on Medicinal plants. This Journal would strive to bridge
up the gap between traditional medicine & Contemporary sciences, by accommodating
researches from both the fields there by a constant flow of research information
on either side could be maintained.
Looking into other part, there is a silent undocumented system of medicine which
too prevails with miraculous effects and time tested remedies for dreadful diseases.
Only a few scholars throw enough light on Ethno-Medicine.
With this vision the GJRMI will be working at publishing & highlighting High quality
research profiles from both Traditional & contemporary sciences revolving around
the world of Medicinal plants & research.
