Why is it important?

Through 'big team science', together we can answer fundamental scientific questions about substance use and addiction, build a literature that is representative of a diverse population of researchers and participants, and ultimately achieve our goal of promoting better global health


This article provides an overview of the opportunities and benefits of embedding big team science within addiction research. It reviews contemporary efforts within psychology and the benefits these would bring to addiction science, outlines an approach to teaching students in reproducible big team science, and evaluates challenges and presents solutions for other researchers to develop these initiatives.
