Addiction Science & Clinical Practice (ASCP) is a peer-reviewed journal with an Impact Factor of 3.088 hosted by leading open-access publisher BioMed Central and edited by Jeffrey H. Samet, MD, MA, MPH, Boston University School of Medicine.

ASCP is seeking submissions for an upcoming special series on the opioid use disorder (OUD) care continuum, specifically articles describing broad research and data supported by the National Drug Abuse Treatment Clinical Trials Network (CTN): its past effort in developing MOUD treatment and current effort in improving MOUD treatment quality.  Edited by E. Jennifer Edelman and Andrew J. Saxon, the series will commemorate 20 years of CTN research activities. Manuscripts are being considered through fall 2020.

Founded in 2002 by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) and indexed in Medline and PsycINFO, ASCP provides a forum for clinically relevant research and perspectives to improve the quality of care for people with unhealthy substance use and addictive behaviors.
