Special Issue Information
Behavioral Sciences is currently publishing manuscripts for a Special Issue on race, ethnicity, and drug addiction. This Special Issue will include articles that draw on a range of theoretical and methodological perspectives that will contribute to our understanding about drug addiction among diverse racial and ethnic groups. We welcome articles that utilize quantitative, qualitative, or mixed-method approaches. Given the focus of the journal, we anticipate that several articles will reflect psychological perspectives. However, we also encourage the submission of articles that draw on multidisciplinary work or integrate individual and structural factors in studies of race, ethnicity, and addiction. Articles that focus on measurement or research design as they relate to race, ethnicity, and addiction would also be of special interest. All articles are subject to peer review. For further information, please contact Karen McElrath, Ph.D. ([email protected]).
