Publishing Addiction Science: A Guide for the Perplexed (3rd edition)

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 third 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 Addiction, the International Society of Addiction Journal Editors, and the Society for the Study of Addiction.
