Editor's Notes

In addition to requiring authors to register their clinical trials in a publicly accessible database, Addiction now requires authors to report and justify any discrepancies between the trial protocol and the study itself in the methods section of the submitted paper. A full list of registers can be found via the WHO International Clinical Trials Registry Platform (ICTRP).
