The Boletin latinoamericano y del caribe de plantas medicinales y aromaticas (BLACPMA, English: Latin American and Caribbean Bulletin of Medicinal and Aromatic Plants') is a bimonthly peer-reviewed scientific journal covering research on all aspects of medicinal and aromatic plants. Articles are published in Spanish, English, Portuguese, or French.

History[edit]

The journal was established in 2002 as a communication tool to keep the Latin-American community informed on events and news related to medicinal and aromatic plants taking place around the world. This primary objective is still achieved by means of the so-called "supplements" issued in between each bulletin. The official launch of the publication took place in Buenos Aires, Argentina, during the first Latin-American Congress of Phytochemistry.

BLACPMA started to publish scientific contributions during its second year of publication. In 2007, the journal officially changed from a newsletter format to a more traditional journal format, typically publishing more than five original papers per issue.

Annual meetings[edit]

With support of the Cuban Pharmacological Society, the journal hosts annual symposiums.
