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

The ADIKTOLOGIE 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 this field, such as Addiction and other significant professional periodicals associated in the International Society of Addiction Journal Editors (ISAJE).

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

ADIKTOLOGIE reflects the modern trend of the continuous development of addictology 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 addictions and research into them, i.e. addictions to all types of both legal and illegal drugs and also addictive behavioural disorders, such as an addiction to gambling machines.

ADIKTOLOGIE is committed to enhance the quality of publications in the field and adheres to the Farmington Consensus (Addiction, 1997, 92, 1617-1618).
