  • ABMRF Journal. The ABMRF Journal was officially launched in 1991 as an expanded version of its predecessor publication, Monthly List of Pertinent Abstracts. It was a print publication that featured recent abstracts of the leading scientific journal articles on sociobehavioral and biomedical effects of alcohol consumption and was sent to a mailing list that included nearly 1300 subscribers in 31 countries. Because of the rapid proliferation of scientific literature and abstracting services available on the internet, the Journal was discontinued at the end of 2001.
