Methods Editors, Drug and Alcohol Review

Drug and Alcohol Review is the Asia-Pacific’s leading multidisciplinary journal addressing issues related to alcohol and other drug-related use and harms. As the official journal of APSAD, Drug and Alcohol Review is an international meeting ground for the views, expertise and experience of all those involved in studying alcohol, tobacco and other drugs. The Journal examines and reports on alcohol and other drug use from a wide range of perspectives including clinical, epidemiological, psychological and sociological. Professor Robin Room is Editor-in-Chief, supported by an expert Editorial Board.

The Journal is seeking to make two Methods Editor appointments to support the work of the Editorial Board, a Statistics Editor and a Qualitative Methods Editor. These Editors will be experts in their respective fields with a capacity to advise on the appropriateness of statistical or qualitative techniques applied in scientific manuscripts submitted to the Journal, as well as overall methodological rigour. The Statistics Editor will be expected to have expertise in the appropriate use and reporting of advanced epidemiological and psychological statistical analyses including Bayesian and frequentist approaches. The Qualitative Methods editor will be expected to have expertise in the appropriate conceptual framing and analytical reporting of different types of qualitative data.

Methods Editors will be appointed for 12 months in the first instance, open to renewal, and will receive a modest honorarium for their work.


In the first instance enquiries should be directed towards Erin Grech, Editorial Officer, Drug and Alcohol Review (dar@apsad.org.au).

Applications comprising a brief letter outlining relevant experience (maximum 1 page) and a short CV should be submitted via email to the above address by 31 August 2017.
