The Journal of Drug Issues (JDI) was incorporated as a nonprofit entity in the State of Florida in 1971. In 1996, JDI was transferred to the Florida State University College of Criminology and Criminal Justice, and the Richard L. Rachin Endowment was established to support its continued publication. Since its inception, JDI has been dedicated to providing a professional and scholarly forum centered on the national and international problems associated with drugs, especially illicit drugs. It is a refereed publication with international contributors and subscribers. As a leader in its field, 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.

For International Authors: English Language Refinement and Editing
JDI receives many submissions from authors that are non native English speakers. Unfortunately, many of these manuscripts must be rejected outright because they are difficult for reviewers to understand. We strongly encourage authors for whom English is a second language to seek help from professional editing services before submitting their manuscripts, which will greatly increase chances of acceptance. For useful resources and information, please see <http://www.sagepub.com/journalgateway/engLang.htm>.
