A peer-reviewed, on-line, scientific journal dedicated to the most common preventable cause of mental retardation, Fetal Alcohol Syndrome and related conditions. In addition to the fetal effects of ethanol (alcohol), Fetal Alcohol Research (FAR), formerly the Journal of FAS International, will also publish studies regarding conditions caused by other gestational exposures, such as drug abuse, as well as the effects of poverty, discrimination, abuse, and addiction, on the developing unborn, newborn, and his/her family. FAR will inform readers of new findings published in other journals, or reported at conferences and meetings.

Conflict of Interest

While the Motherisk Alcohol and Substance Use Helpline is sponsored by the Brewers Association of Canada, this Journal is not. FAR has no relationship with any corporate sponsors. The Motherisk Program of The Hospital for Sick Children as publisher of FAR retains editorial control over the content of FAR. FAR is independent of commercial funding.
