Blackwell to Publish Alcoholism: Clinical and Experimental Research in

Boston, Massachusetts - November 17, 2005-The Research Society on
Alcoholism (RSA) announced a new publishing partnership today with
Blackwell Publishing to begin in January 2006. RSA selected Blackwell
Publishing, the world's leading society publisher, to publish Alcoholism:
Clinical and Experimental Research (ACER) which is the official journal of
both RSA and The International Society for Biomedical research on
Alcoholism (ISBRA). The journal will continue to be published by
Lippincott Williams & Wilkins until the end of 2005.

"Although great strides have been made in understanding the genetic,
biomedical, and psychosocial factors in alcoholism, much more basic and
clinical research is needed to develop highly-effective treatments." said
Ivan Diamond, Editor-in-Chief. "ACER brings together the best basic and
clinical research findings in our field and we look forward to working
with Blackwell to communicate these exciting discoveries to the world's
research communities, clinicians and policy makers." said Harriet de Wit,
Deputy Editor.

ACER provides readers with access to the latest research findings on
alcoholism and alcohol-related disorders. Articles cover all aspects of
alcohol research including genetics and molecular biology; pharmacology
and cell metabolism; neurobiological, psychosocial, and developmental
correlates of drinking; diagnosis and treatment; epidemiology and
prevention; and alcohol effects on the fetus, brain, liver, and other
organ systems.

According to Gordon Tibbitts, President of Blackwell Publishing Inc., "We
are pleased to be collaborating with the Research Society on Alcoholism
and the International Society for Biomedical Research on Alcoholism on the
flagship journal, Alcoholism: Clinical and Experimental Research. We look
forward to supporting their mission of advancing the knowledge of
alcoholism and delivering the most important clinical research to the
international scientific and health communities."
