Addiction Research and Theory is a cross-disciplinary
journal examining the effects of context on the use and
misuse of substances, and on the nature of intoxications of
all kinds. It aims to provide an outlet for the growing
body of theory and related research which sees the nature
of 'addicted' behaviour of all types as arising from the
social context within which it takes place, rather than as
an inevitable manifestation of biological mechanisms or
pharmacology. It publishes research which is primarily
psychological and social in origin, though these terms are
used in a very broad sense. Contributions are welcomed from
the disciplines of anthropology, economics, sociology,
social- psychology, social and economic history, and any
other area illustrating the relationship between context
and the variable nature of those behaviours described
as 'addicted'. The range will include the substance-based
addictions, but will also cover problems not involving
psychoactive agents, such as gambling, sexual behaviour and
eating disorders.
