Publishing Addiction Science: A New and Valuable Resource

This past year has brought an important new resource for researchers and clinicians who wish to publish their work in the peer-reviewed, scientific journals that focus on addiction, addiction treatment or addiction- related social policy. The World Health Organization and the International Society of Addiction Journal Editors have given the addictions field the first definitive guide to addictions-focused scientific journals. Publishing Addiction Science: A Guide for the Perplexed, edited by Thomas Babor, Kertsin Stenius and Susan Savva (2004), provides clear guidance on writing, submitting and revising articles as well as a directory of the major journals, the scope of their interests and submission guidelines. For those who have long wished for a Bible of addiction publishing, it has arrived.
