Much research work, particularly in developing countries, at present goes unreported. The reasons for this include the intense competition to publish in the scientific press, and difficulties in matching the research resources of developed countries. The DAP research series was established to provide a forum for the rapid distribution of data and findings relevant to critical areas of drug policy and use. The Action Programme has a firm commitment to national operational research as part of its direct country support. It is also strongly committed to making the findings of such studies widely known and accessible. While every effort is made by the Programme to support studies of the highest possible quality, research skills and resources will vary from country to country. Documents in the DAP research series reflect this variation, and range from reports of very small scale studies, undertaken with minimal resources, to major global research involving substantive financial, scientific and editorial input.
