NIDA Briefs Addiction Research Organizations

NIDA International Program Director Steven W. Gust, Ph.D., participated in the International Confederation of Alcohol, Tobacco and Other Drug Research Associations (ICARA) meeting, which was held in conjunction with the International Society of Addiction Journal Editors (ISAJE) meeting, September 4–5, 2014, in Chicago. Dr. Gust described the productive partnership between the NIDA International Program and ISAJE that is designed to help scientists from low- and middle-income countries (LMIC) publish their research results in peer-reviewed journals. NIDA has provided partial support for the ISAJE website Publishing Addiction Research Internationally (PARINT.org). A second NIDA-ISAJE initiative is an online writing mentor program where addiction journal editors provide one-on-one tutoring for LMIC researchers. NIDA also provides partial support for scientific writing workshops where ISAJE members train researchers in a specific country or region. Dr. Gust also summarized NIDA’s international mission, funding support, research priorities, and fellowship opportunities. ICARA is an international network of national, regional, and international societies that promotes research on alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs through professional exchange, collaboration, and advocacy.
