NIDA’s award-winning peer-reviewed journal, Addiction Science & Clinical Practice, was recently acquired by Biomed Central, a large science, technology, and medicine publisher. The journal continues to be freely available through PubMed Central but will no longer appear in a print edition.

Addiction Science & Clinical Practice is a peer-reviewed international online journal whose focus is to provide a forum for clinically relevant research and perspectives aimed at improving the quality of care for people with unhealthy alcohol, tobacco, or other drug use and addictive behaviors across a spectrum of clinical settings. The new co-editors in chief are NIDA-funded researchers and clinicians Richard Saitz, M.D., M.P.H., and Jeffrey Samet, M.D., M.A., M.P.H., both from the Boston University School of Medicine. They will continue their current editorship of the NIDA-supported online newsletter Alcohol, Other Drugs, and Health: Current Evidence.

You can view back issues of the journal at the NIDA Archives Site. Details about sought-after article topics and submission instructions can be found at the journal’s Web site, www.ascpjournal.org.
