The Co-Editors-in-Chief, Professor Neo Morojele and Associate Professor Anne-Marie Laslett are pleased to announce the release of the second issue of Volume 11 of the International Journal of Alcohol and Drug Research (IJADR). The second and final issue for 2023 consists of papers all of which concern the theme of alcohol surveys. The focus of the first paper is on methodological issues pertaining to a survey on alcohol’s harms to others which originated in Australia. The remaining papers describe studies which used surveys to measure predictors and patterns of alcohol consumption in South Africa; patterns of alcohol consumption during the COVID-19 pandemic in Switzerland; and patterns of alcohol consumption and drunk-driving related harm in Tanzania. The papers involve studies conducted in diverse settings, and in this issue they include both high-income (Australia and Switzerland) and middle-income (South Africa and Tanzania) countries.
As mentioned in our Editorial we are continuing to work towards the production of our Special Issue in 2023, with the theme of: Alcohol Prevention Research and Policy Development in LMICs: Facilitating Partnerships, Capacity and Impact. Our second Special issue is the inaugural “KBS 2023 Annual Symposium Issue”. We hope it will become a tradition for IJADR to publish an issue dedicated to papers presented at each annual KBS Symposium. We have extended the deadline for submitting your articles from the 2023 KBS symposium to 26 January 2024.
We continue to seek submissions to IJADR for our regular issue to publish and promote social and epidemiological research on alcohol and other drugs, and foster comparative understanding of substance use and substance problems.Read more about Vol 11, No 2 (2023) published
