Addiction scientists working in low- and middle-income countries can now have one-on-one support to facilitate the publication of completed work. The free service, offered by the International Society of Addiction Journal Editors and its satellite Web site, (Publishing Addiction Research Internationally), offers investigators who often work in institutions that lack a history of writing for peer-reviewed journals guidance when preparing their work for publication. At the core of the service is a database of established researchers who have agreed to offer their services as mentors. They include members of the advisory or editorial boards of scientific journals, and many are themselves editors and the recipients of other indicators of esteem from the scientific community.
