Documentation and studies form a fundamental part of the activity developed by the Paracelso Institute. The aim is to provide researchers, scholars and professionals with selected documentary material on traditional medicine and in general on non-conventional medicines, and enable them to use it as a subject of further investigation, evaluation, verification, improvement, development as well as to introduce it in their everyday activity.
The task of documenting is implemented along the following workstreams:
- Scientific cultural exchange with Italian and foreign institutions and organizations that carry out studies on traditional and folk medicines, non-conventional medicines, ethno-medicine, history of medicine;
- Literature research;
- Original and in-the-field researches on ethno-medicine.
