ISAJE is the first society for addiction journal editors and was formally constituted in 2001 as a non-profit organization. ISAJE holds major meetings every year providing an opportunity to discuss shared problems. Full membership with voting rights is open to editors and staff of peer-reviewed journals, with flexible membership fees.

The Society addresses the needs of journal editors, their staffs, authors and reviewers, for support and guidance in our field. We organize training seminars, and through online and printed material we offer guidance on ethical regulations and publication standards. We especially support journals published in the developing world and those published in languages other than English. We represent the interests of scientific publishing vis-à-vis database and indexing systems, publishers, and society at large.

The Society is established to promote excellence in the communication and dissemination of information on addiction and related sciences within the scientific community and to those who have responsibility for the prevention, treatment, cure, professional training and policy formation in this field.
