Alcohol will publish original reports in English of new and systematic studies in the various fields of alcohol research. All aspects of alcohol's biological action will be covered, including anatomy, biochemistry, cell biology, physiology, pharmacology, toxicology, behavior, social anthropology, and clinical problems. Of immense value to both practitioners and basic scientists, Alcohol is the major international journal devoted solely to biomedical research on alcohol and alcoholism. Appearing nine times per year, the journal is dedicated to excellence and in-depth reporting of the burgeoning literature on alcoholism as a disease state. Topics include, but are not limited to, biomedical factors in the etiology of alcoholism; biomedical factors in the pathologic effects of uncontrolled drinking; biological and biochemical markers in the identification of alcoholism; new drugs and chemotherapeutic strategies in the treatment of uncontrolled drinking; alcohol withdrawal; and psychological and biological problems associated with fetal alcohol syndrome. Alcohol features original research articles, review articles, theoretical articles, brief communications, and rapid communications. Brief communications should describe a new method, technique, or apparatus or present the results of experiments that can be reported briefly with a minimal number of figures and tables. Rapid communications should be original and of high quality and should not exceed four printed pages in length. A limited number of pertinent literature reviews and theoretical articles, results of symposia, abstracts and/or proceedings of meetings, and more comprehensive studies may also be published as special issues of or supplements to the journal. All special issues and supplements are subject to our standard peer-review procedure and final approval by the Editors.
