Portfolio by the numbers
Taylor and Francis publish a broad range of research into addiction and substance abuse, ranging from treatment and therapy to specific cases and regions.
Our Addiction and Treatment portfolio includes bestselling books such as Group Psychotherapy with Addicted Populations, now in its 4th edition, and Drugs in Sport, now in its 8th edition, as well as high-impact, peer-reviewed journals including Addiction Research & Theory, The American Journal of Drug and Alcohol Abuse, affiliated with the International Society of Addiction Journal Editors, the Journal of Substance Abuse.
Since being founded in 1993, Addiction Research and Theory has been the leading outlet for research and theoretical contributions that view addictive behaviour as arising from psychological processes within the individual and the social context in which the behaviour takes place as much as from the biological effects of the psychoactive substance or activity involved.

AJDAA provides a venue for researchers to disseminate clinically relevant research findings and innovative perspectives in the field of addiction. Topics published in AJDAA span preclinical to population-based analyses, including applied methodology, neurobiology, behavioral science, treatment, epidemiology, and public policy. The manuscripts generally present original data analyses or quantitative/narrative reviews of timely developments in our field. Manuscripts exploring behavioral addictions are encouraged. Reviews and Perspectives of emerging fields are given priority consideration. Papers are published on an ongoing basis.
