7 Items

Dear Colleagues,

We are organizing a Special Section on “Addiction & Dependency”. The destination is a peer-reviewed, scientific journal that publishes original research articles, review articles, short reports, case studies, position papers, commentaries, letters to the editor, and book reviews in the interdisciplinary area of public health.  For detailed information about the journal, we refer you to

The Special Section on “Addiction & Dependency” will welcome submissions across a broad spectrum of topics in this field.  This Special Section is open to contributions with a Public Health relevance from all disciplines on these topics ranging from the medical humanities to biochemical science and genetics. We also welcome qualitative and quantitative research, as well as those employing a mixed methods approach. We are interested in all forms of addiction and dependency. This includes epidemiology, prevalence, and underlying causal factors. We would especially like to encourage the contributions from low and middle-income countries, conflict zones and low resource areas.

This Special Section aims to bring together evidence and narratives on these issues to generate solutions that will contribute to combatting addiction & dependence.

We hope that this section will contribute to advancing our understanding of addiction and dependency in different cultures and contexts into the future. The open call is on a rolling basis and contributions are accepted at any time. Manuscripts which have passed the review process will be published in continuous sequence as part of the spring and autumn volumes of SEEJPH. For original articles a reduced fee of 100 EURO will be requested before publication and for review articles 50 EURO; all other formats are free of charge.

Submissions should be made through the online manuscript submission and editorial system at . For further details on the submission process, please see the instructions for authors at the journal website


We look forward to hearing from you soon.

Kind regards,
