What Your Colleagues Say About Substance Abuse: Research and Treatment
This is the second time I have published a manuscript in a Libertas Academica journal.  Once again, the process was really fast, peer reviewing was of high quality and authors were frequently informed by the editors about the stage of the publication process.  Overall a positive experience, therefore Libertas Academica is highly recommended for publishing your scientific work.
