The 11-item Assessment of Criteria for Specific Internet-use Disorders (ACSID-11) is a newly developed screening instrument based on the ICD-11 criteria for gaming disorder. It measures five (potential) specific Internet-use disorders (i.e., gaming disorder, online buying-shopping disorder, online pornography-use disorder, social-networks-use disorder, and online gambling disorder) with the same set of items by following the principles of WHO's Alcohol, Smoking and Substance Involvement Screening Test (ASSIST).

The original version in German was developed in the context of our Research Unit, FOR2974, and published in early 2022 (Müller et al., 2022). Since then, there have been various efforts for further validation studies and translations into other languages.
