Drugs and Alcohol: Open Access

Check Publishers' Credibility!

While this list is monitored, you should know that there are many questionable open-access publishers who do not screen articles for quality or scientific rigor, and who charge very large author fees. So be cautious about content and be especially cautious about submitting articles for publication. 

Subject Specific Open Access Journals

Open Access drugs & alcohol journals are relatively few in number; their contents represent only a fraction of the research that is freely available. If you just want to find relevant content, the journal articles link is a better option.
