In view of the fact that 10 years has passed since its publication, the Publishing House has invited Nanjing University of TCM and Shanghai University of TCM to organize experts to recompile and translate the Library in order to update the study and development of Traditional Chinese Medicine.

Nanjing University of TCM and Shanghai University of TCM are well-known for their advantages in higher education of traditional Chinese medicine and compilation of traditional Chinese medical textbooks. The compilation of A Newly Compiled Practical English-Chinese Library of Traditional Chinese Medicine has absorbed the rich experience accumulated by Nanjing University of Traditional Chinese Medicine in training international students of traditional Chinese medicine.
