India has nearly three lakh registered homoeopathic medical practitioners, practicing in government or private clinical/research settings. However, there is lack of a common platform where documentation/ publication of their successful clinical cases can be done regularly which will help in promotion of homoeopathy on a global scale. HCCR portal is poised to fill this gap by serving as a platform which will be a national database of clinical cases where homoeopathic clinicians, researchers and medical students can share their successful clinical cases around the homoeopathic community worldwide. It will also provide opportunity to explore other cases, treatment trends, morbidity patterns and cure rates of common and rare clinical conditions using homoeopathic intervention.
A few other benefits of publishing with HCCR portal are
The open access policy of HCCR portal allows maximum visibility of case reports as they are available to a wide, global audience.
Speed of publication
HCCR portal offers a fast publication schedule in our in-house journal, namely, Indian Journal of Research in Homoeopathy whilst maintaining rigorous peer review; where peer review is managed fully electronically (articles are distributed in PDF form, which is automatically generated from the submitted files). We want to publish cases in IJRH worthy of discussion, particularly around aspects of differential diagnosis, decision making, management, clinical guidelines and pathology.
Promotion and national visibility

Some may be highlighted on HCCR portal homepage and promoted on scientific press of CCRH website, thus, increasing the exposure and number of accesses for case reports accepted in HCCR portal.
