Addictive Behaviors

"Addictive Behaviors is an international, peer-reviewed scientific journal publishing human research on substance abuse. The journal specifically focuses on studies related to the abuse of alcohol drugs and nicotine. Articles represent interdisciplinary endeavors with research in such fields as psychology, psychiatry, epidemiology, medicine, pharmacology and neuroscience. While theoretical orientations are diverse, the emphasis of the journal is primarily empirical. That is, sound experimental design combined with valid, reliable assessment and evaluation procedures are a requisite for acceptance. Uncontrolled clinical demonstrations and case studies are not accepted for publication. Priority is given to the publication of research that evaluates behavioral and/or pharmacological treatment or prevention interventions. In addition, studies of the functional relationships between substance use and any one of a combination of social, emotional, cognitive, environmental, and attitudinal factors are encouraged. Studies that clearly contribute to current knowledge of the etiology, prevention and/or treatment of substance abuse are given priority. Research on the epidemiology of substance use is also published. A limited number of reviews are published." (From publisher's website)
