Drugs: Education, Prevention & Policy publishes multi-disciplinary research papers, reviews and commentaries on policy, treatment, prevention and harm reduction issues regarding both the use and misuse of alcohol, tobacco and other drugs.

The policy of the journal is to encourage submissions which reflect different cultural, historical and theoretical approaches to the understanding of the drug and alcohol field and the development of policy and practice. The journal provides a forum for communication and debate between researchers, policy makers and practitioners concerned with social, health and judicial policy responses to legal and illicit drug use.

The Editor welcomes contributions based on original research, policy discussion, social responses to substance use or misuse, co-evaluations of policy and practice, literature reviews, and finally those papers which examine historical and cultural aspects of substance use.
