  • Vol 9, No 1 (2021) published

    2021-07-07

    The Co-Editors-in-Chief, Professor Neo Morojele and Dr Anne-Marie Laslett are pleased to announce the release of the first issue of the 9th volume of the International Journal of Alcohol and Drug Research (IJADR).

    This issue includes authors from non-English speaking, low- and middle-income countries (Turkey, Russia) and early career researchers (Australia). We would like to highlight the article by Hughes et al. (2021) that showcases the longest running longitudinal study of sexual minority women in the world, released at the end of Pride Month. In general, we would characterise this international issue by saying that it focuses on measurement of alcohol use, alcohol problems and the costs societies bear in terms of alcohol’s use and harm.  

    Newsbreak: At the recent online 46th Annual Alcohol Epidemiology Symposium of the Kettil Bruun Society organised by our dear colleagues in Helsinki, a strong majority decision was taken by the membership at the Annual Business Meeting to confirm IJADR’s position as the journal of the Society.  Additional financial support was also pledged to support publication by authors from low- and middle-income countries. We would like to thank the Kettil Bruun Society (KBS) for taking this decision and look forward to working more closely with the KBS Coordinating Committee. Together we hope to ensure that our aligned mission, to support international and collaborative research and its publication, is advanced.

    We hope you find these papers inspiring and look forward to receiving more research articles, reviews, commentaries, ideas for special issues, and other papers on social and epidemiological research concerning any of the full range of addictive substances from across the globe. IJADR aims to ensure that our authorship, readership and editorial team are diverse and inclusive.  We also strive to improve the relatively limited geographical and gender representation in the field of alcohol and other drug research and hope you will join us in this important mission. Please do not forget that fees for papers from LMIC are waived and requests from early career researchers for fee relief are considered on a case-by-case basis.

    The editors of the International Journal of Alcohol and Drug Research (IJADR) are pleased to announce the release of the second issue of the 8th volume. This issue is the second issue to have been jointly managed by the new Co-Editors-in-Chief: Professor Neo Morojele from South Africa, and Dr Anne-Marie Laslett from Australia (see our editorial).

    The issue content includes authors from Scandinavia and North America and studies from Canada, Sri Lanka, Germany and the United States. We cover a wide range of topics, with articles on the burden of disease in North America, pricing elasticity in Sri Lanka, the protective effect of marriage on substance use by sexual identity status in the US, a study of techniques that assist qualitative researchers to determine their subjectivity in Germany and a multi-level analysis of factors affecting early adolescents’ alcohol use.  

    We hope you find these papers inspiring and look forward to receiving more research articles, reviews, commentaries, ideas for special issues, and other papers on social and epidemiological research concerning any of the full range of addictive substances from across the globe.

    The editors of the International Journal of Alcohol and Drug Research (IJADR) are pleased to announce the release of the first issue of our 8th volume. This issue is the first issue to have been jointly managed by the new Co-Editors-in-Chief: Professor Neo Morojele from South Africa, and Dr Anne-Marie Laslett from Australia (see our editoral for this new issue).

    The issue content reflects both the Journal’s international character – this issue includes studies/authors from four different continents – and the methodological diversity of present-day alcohol and drug research, including quantitative original studies, systematic reviews, meta-analysis and efficacy evaluation studies.

    We hope you find these papers inspiring and look forward to receiving more research articles, reviews, commentaries, ideas for special issues, and other papers on social and epidemiological research concerning any of the full range of addictive substances from across the globe.
