Korf, Dirk and Benschop, Annemieke and Rabes, Manfred (2002) Pill testing, ecstasy and prevention: a scientific evaluation in three European cities. Amsterdam: Rozenberg .

In this report we present the findings of an empirical study conducted in three European cities (Amsterdam, Hanover and Vienna). All three cities offer ecstasy users facilities for pill-testing. Earlier studies addressing the question whether pill-testing influences the behaviour of ecstasy users did so on the basis of the hypothetical situation that this opportunity was available. Few studies were able to test what users in effect do when actually offered this opportunity. For this reason our study focuses not only on the stated intentions of ecstasy users, but in particular on their actual behaviour in relation to pill-testing.
