In support of the Institute's mission to lead the Nation in bringing the power of science to bear on drug abuse and addiction, NIDA shares the results of the research it funds in print and on the Web. The new communication products include NIDA NOTES collections and science meeting summaries and special reports.
New NIDA NOTES Collections
NIDA will soon offer a rich compilation of past NIDA NOTES articles on cocaine abuse and addiction. This new collection provides a snapshot of research findings and news that seeks to improve understanding of topics ranging from how cocaine works in the brains of abusers to treatments that offer hope for recovery. Capturing the past 10 years of cocaine research as presented in NIDA NOTES, A Collection of NIDA NOTES Articles That Address Research on Cocaine is available in print and online. For access to this and other NIDA communication products noted, see "For More Information."
Also rolling off the press with the cocaine articles collection will be revisions of NIDA NOTES Articles That Address Women and Gender Differences Research and NIDA NOTES Articles That Address Drugs and AIDS. Both collections are highly popular at conferences and other NIDA events. These publications join the ranks of equally popular NIDA NOTES collections on heroin, nicotine, marijuana, club drugs, prevention, and treatment.
The new Science Meeting Summaries and Special Reports will offer synopses of key meeting points and PowerPoint presentations from meeting sessions.
NIDA Science Meeting Summaries and Special Reports
