Interview with Dr Axel Klein, Editor of DAT
"I am looking for critical reflection and experience (bad as well as good)
presented in such a way that people can learn from it."
Drugs and Alcohol Today (DAT) keeps abreast of current events, policy developments and the latest research across drugs, alcohol and related fields.
DAT is the only journal which seeks to expose the causal links between policy and different health and public safety problems. The journal considers ‘drug problems’ internationally as a product of prohibitionist policies as much as of the drugs themselves.
Articles are peer-reviewed, accessible and relevant to a wide and varied audience. Issues combine research with discussion of policy and views from practitioners and users. Drugs are an international problem and this is reflected in the content.
Intended as a tool to assist in the search for better solutions, DAT covers but is not limited to:
The editor is a member of the International Society of Addiction Journal Editors and DAT endorses the ethical principles set out in the Farmington Consensus.
