Aims & Scope

The International Journal of Drug Policy provides a forum for the dissemination of current research, reviews, debate, and critical analysis on drug use and drug policy in a global context. It seeks to publish material on the social, political, legal, and health contexts of psychoactive substance use, both licit and illicit. The journal is particularly concerned to explore the effects of drug policy and practice on drug-using behaviour and its health and social consequences. It is the policy of the journal to represent a wide range of material on drug-related matters from around the world.

The International Journal of Drug Policy is ranked 4th out of 36 journals in the SUBSTANCE ABUSE category in the 2014 Journal Citation Reports, published by Thomson Reuters, and has an Impact Factor of 3.191.
