New Website: "History of a Public Science: Substance Abuse Research"
Nancy Campbell and Joseph Spillane have just recently launched a website featuring an electronic archive of oral histories collected as part of a study of the substance abuse research field. A complex and multidisciplinary field of scientific inquiry, this site includes oral histories of senior researchers in fields such as: chemistry, pharmacology, neuroscience, genetics, and sociology.
The website features the full interviews, in addition to an extensive "roadmap" to the site that provides users with a historical framework within which to read the oral histories.
The project should be of interest to students of drug abuse and drug policy, as well as those interested in the nature and organization of scientific work.
This project was supported by the NSF, as well as the University of Michigan Substance Abuse Research Center, and the College on Problems of Drug Dependence.
