Development of the Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test (AUDIT): WHO Collaborative Project on Early Detection of Persons with Harmful Alcohol Consumption--II.
The AUDIT provides a simple method of early detection of hazardous and harmful alcohol use in primary health care settings and is the first instrument of its type to be derived on the basis of a cross-national study.
AUDIT - The alcohol use disorders identification test: guidelines for use in primary care.
This manual introduces the AUDIT, the Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test, and describes how to use it to identify persons with hazardous and harmful patterns of alcohol consumption.
SCAN. Schedules for Clinical Assessment in Neuropsychiatry.
The new system, known as SCAN (Schedules for Clinical Assessment in Neuropsychiatry), includes the 10th edition of the PSE as one of its core schedules, preliminary tests of which have suggested that reliability is similar to that of PSE-9.
The Composite International Diagnostic Interview. An epidemiologic Instrument suitable for use in conjunction with different diagnostic systems and in different cultures.
The design and development of the CIDI is described and the current field testing of a slightly reduced "core" version is described, allowing investigators reliably to assess mental disorders according to the most widely accepted nomenclatures in many different populations and cultures.

The Cannabis Youth Treatment (CYT) Study: main findings from two randomized trials.
Types of alcoholics, I. Evidence for an empirically derived typology based on indicators of vulnerability and severity.
An empirical clustering technique was applied to data obtained from 321 male and female alcoholics to identify homogeneous subtypes having discriminative and predictive validity and suggest that an empirically derived, multivariate typology of alcoholism has theoretical implications for explaining the heterogeneity among alcoholics and may provide a useful basis for predicting course and estimating treatment response.

Sensitivity and specificities of the AUDIT or criteria of current hazardous use and, to a slightly lesser extent, lifetime alcohol dependence are high, and AUDIT scores are at least moderately related to other self-report alcohol screening tests.
