Substance Use and Abuse

Special Issue

Corrections: Policy, Practice, and Research (CPPR) is currently soliciting manuscripts for a special issue on substance use and abuse and its relationship to interactions with the corrections system.  While the topic area is largely open to the author’s discretion, manuscripts considered for publication in this special issue can focus on a variety of topics related to: 1) barriers and challenges faced by individuals with substance use/abuse histories involved in the corrections system and/or undergoing reentry; 2) successful policies, treatments, and/or interventions for individuals with drug convictions, and/or 3) special corrections considerations for juveniles with histories of substance use and abuse.  Manuscripts dealing with probation, parole, incarceration, prison reentry and other aspects of community corrections are especially encouraged.  Qualitative, quantitative, and mixed-methods approaches are welcomed.  

Submission Guidelines

Manuscripts should be submitted electronically to CPPR's ScholarOne site. Manuscripts should be no more than 40 double-spaced pages, Times New Roman, 12 point font, 1” margins.  No color pictures, graphs or tables should be included.  Authors should follow all formatting guidelines of the APA Publication Manual, 6th Edition and CPPR's Instructions for Authors. Questions should be directed to Editor, Dr. Cathy Marcum, or Associate Editor, Dr. Tina Freiburger.

Submission Deadline: March 1, 2020
