    Abstract

    An anonymous, online survey using a convenience sample of global researchers was implemented during 2013-2014 to explore the actual use or nonuse of their research outcomes in a range of interventions in the area of substance use and related disorders. Eighty-seven researchers from 19 countries responded. Based on their self-reports, the utilizability of their findings were either unknown to them or had no effects in terms of substance use treatment, prevention, policies, or professional education. Most respondents did believe, however, that their investigations had an influence on substance use research. The study's limitations are noted.
