The articles in the annotated bibliography, also summarized in the CanFASD ‘Top FASD Articles of 2019 list’, were selected by a group of Canada FASD Research Network (CanFASD) staff, researchers, and Family Advisory Committee members to highlight some of the work that has been published over the last year in the field of FASD. A literature search of Web of Science, PubMed, PsycInfo, Scholars Portal, Proquest Nursing and Allied Health, Google Scholar, CINAHL, Ovid, and Ovid Nursing Journals databases yielded over 460 articles published in 2018 on FASD.
Many of these were excellent publications (especially in the areas of animal models of FASD, epigenetics, and brainbased research). However, the final list was narrowed down to focus on CanFASD’s areas of emphasis in FASD prevention, intervention, diagnosis, social justice, child welfare, and family collaboration.
Additional consideration for what constituted the “top” articles included:
» Generalizability to Canadians
» Influence on practice or policy
» Scientific rigour
» Media attention
Final selections were categorized by area of focus, and limited to 5 articles or less per category. All articles are published in peer-reviewed journals.
They are arranged in alphabetical order by first author’s surname, and those marked with an asterisk (*) are available in open access.
Top selected articles were sorted into 9 categories: assessment, diagnosis, and clinical presentation of FASD; intervention; mental health; prevention and maternal health; child welfare; caregivers/families; justice; research methodology/policy issues; and basic science and epigenetics.
