Addiction was established in 1884 and has been in continuous publication ever since, the longest established journal in its field. It has built up a reputation in that time for scientific quality, for the diversity of material it publishes, and for its pioneering role in stimulating and leading debate.

It is committed to promoting communication - between disciplines, between cultures, and between scientists, practitioners and policy-makers.

Addiction has been successful in these goals because of the huge cast of top specialists throughout the world who contribute to its work through their rigorous peer reviewing, writing, advice, and support in many other ways.

We have strengthened commitment to internationalism and to our authors, by recently establishing regional offices for the Americas and for Australasia, to speed the handling of papers and bring authors and editors closer. Addiction also receives wide media coverage internationally.

Addiction is indexed in Addiction Abstracts, Applied Social Science Index and Abstracts (ASSIA), EMBASE/Excerpta Medica, Index Medicus, Current Contents/Clinical Medicine, Current Contents/Behavioral Sciences, Psychological Abstracts, Science Citation Index, Social Sciences Citation Index, Medical Documentation Service, Research Alert, SciSearch: Social SciSearch, ETOH (NIAAA online database) and ISI/BioMed.
