Journal’s Aim & Scope

ADDICTOLOGY is an international journal devoted to publishing peer-reviewed interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary scientific reports on psychoactive substance use, other behavioural addictions, and related issues.

The articles include papers on the education, training, and fostering of professionalism in addiction practitioners, prevention and treatment research, public health interventions, and studies employing a range of methods and exploring substance use from the epidemiological, economic, historical, and cultural perspectives.

The original research reports, scholarly reviews, policy analyses, editorials, commentaries, and book reviews aim to stimulate and support internationally relevant and inspiring interaction between science and prevention, clinical, and decision-making practices. It is a continuous goal of the journal to support the translation of science into practice and policy.

ADDICTOLOGY is a peer-reviewed journal. Each manuscript is subject to two independent reviews.

ADDICTOLOGY is a proud member of the International Society of Addiction Journal Editors (ISAJE).

The ADDICTOLOGY journal has been published since 2001. It is based on an interdisciplinary approach to addictive substances and their use (and/or users). It follows the line of traditional journals in the field, such as Addiction and other significant professional periodicals associated under the International Society of Addiction Journal Editors (ISAJE).

The journal strives to mediate communication among professionals working in the field, provide a valuable platform for such communication, and present the latest knowledge, in terms of both theory and practice. In addition to the printed form (the journal itself), the interactive section of this website provides a broader space for communication.

ADDICTOLOGY reflects the modern trend of the continuous development of addiction science as a separate discipline, a new branch of science with clearly designated boundaries. The quest for the development of a new discipline capable of going beyond the inadequate single-field concept, integrating knowledge generated by different theoretical perspectives, is becoming an increasingly significant factor shaping the field of the prevention and treatment of, and research into, addictions involving all types of both legal and illegal substances and addictive behavioural disorders, such as pathological gambling.

ADDICTOLOGY is committed to enhancing the quality of publications in the field and adheres to the Farmington Consensus (Addiction, 1997, 92, 1617–1618).
