Abstract

Research is a part and parcel of today’s medical field. Evidence-based medicine is the key to global acceptance. With the advent of new diseases and incurability through contemporary medicine, the world is looking at the traditional system with optimism. Proper documentation and preparation of standard protocol are the key factors in carrying out any research. Health professionals have a special interest in clinical research when compared to basic research. But, the present situation has demanded health professionals to focus on basic research to throw light on the hidden principles of Ayurveda. Apart from the available literature, there are many unpublished manuscripts in Ayurveda. It is the need of the hour to publish and bring out such manuscripts to the public domain to benefit the general public through the medical fraternity. An overview of manuscriptology is given in this work covering the basic information such as the need, pre-requisites, scribal error, editing, storage, repair and reproduction. More the manuscripts getting published better will be the understanding of Ayurveda, in accordance to changing times.
