CFP: Substance Use, Misuse and Dependence

Call for Papers

PLOS ONE Special Issue: Substance Use, Misuse and Dependence: Prevention and Treatment

This is a call for papers for a special issue for the multidisciplinary, open-access journal PLOS ONE. The guest editors for the special issue include a medical anthropologist (Philippe Bourgois), a medical sociologist (Lindsey Richardson), a researcher in social determinants of health (Hannah Cooper), a psychologist (Carl Hart), and an MD/medical researcher (Daniel Ciccarone). In other words, social scientists are very much encouraged to submit abstracts.  

The editorial team seeks contributions to this Collection that: 1) Assess the impacts of drug use-relevant policies for human health, 2) Evaluate the effectiveness of novel structural prevention and treatment interventions and 3) Identify and measure the contribution of social, structural and environmental conditions to SUD prevention, recovery and relapse. 

The accepted papers will form a PLOS ONE Collection/PLOS Medicine Special Issue, to be published in November 2019. Contributions should be submitted by June 7, 2019.

The journal PLOS ONE is published by the Public Library of Science (PLOS), a non-profit open access publisher and advocacy organization and selects submissions for scientific rigor rather than perceived impact. As an interdisciplinary journal, PLOS ONE is open to all empirical research methods.
