Journal of Drug Issues (JDI) continues its dedication to providing a professional and scholarly forum centered on the national and international problems associated with drugs, especially illicit drugs. With international contributors and subscribers, JDI is an instrument widely used by research scholars, public policy analysts, and those involved in the day-to-day struggle against the problem of drug abuse. Joining the SAGE journal family means that Journal of Drug Issues will be available through SAGE Journals Online and authors will be able to submit articles for review through SAGE Track.

“We chose SAGE because we were impressed with the strength of its criminology list and felt like JDI would fit in well,” said Tom Blomberg, Dean and Sheldon L. Messinger Professor of Criminology. “We were also looking at a publisher who could make the work more discoverable and felt like the SAGE Journals Online platform performs well in that area.”

The Florida State University College of Criminology and Criminal Justiceis known for its ground-breaking research, challenging coursework, and inspiring intellectual community.

“SAGE helps organizations dedicated to furthering their research do so by allowing them to concentrate on selecting the best research for their journal,” said Bob Howard, SAGE Executive Director, US Journals. “SAGE is happy to provide greater technological methods of dissemination and discoverability with our tools and platform.”
