Editor's Notes
The issue of drugs legalisation continues unabated. Reviewing contents of Addiction in 2013 I am struck by a truth about human behaviour: the harder it is for people to do things, the less they do them. But do we care enough to put the necessary resources into enforcement and deal with the consequences? If it were illegal to sell alcohol to someone without a 'responsible drinker' licence, or tobacco to someone lacking proof of age, the effect on population health would be substantial. But such a plan would be crazy, surely...? The pages of Addiction in 2014 will help answer this question and others like it.

Publishing Addiction Science: A Guide for the Perplexed (2nd edition)

http://www.parint.org/isajewebsite/isajebook2.htm

Publishing Addiction Science is a comprehensive guide for addiction scientists - especially novice researchers - facing the complex process of publishing in scholarly journals. Written by an international group of addiction science journal editors and their colleagues, Publishing Addiction Science tackles such issues as choosing a journal, publishing qualitative research, responding to reviewers’ reports, becoming a reviewer yourself, and appropriate responses to ethical issues common to addiction science publishing. International in its scope, and now in a thoroughly revised, expanded and updated second edition, the book gives special attention to the challenges for researchers from developing and non-English-speaking countries. Publishing Addiction Science is co-sponsored by the International Society of Addiction Journal Editors, and the Society for the Study of Addiction.
