CFP: Social History of Alcohol and Drugs: An Interdisciplinary Journal

Call for submissions: The Social History of Alcohol and Drugs: An Interdisciplinary Journal

The SHAD is a peer-reviewed academic journal dedicated to publishing high-quality original academic research, reflection essays and reviews in the field of alcohol and drug history, broadly construed. We invite authors from a range of disciplines to submit papers on the wide range of topics within the journal’s purview.

General topics include the manufacture, prohibition, consumption and regulation of alcohol, drugs (recreational, pharmaceutical etc), tobacco, coffee, and so on. The disciplinary focus can be broad, from economic, business, political, social, cultural history, to sociology, anthropology and criminology. The journal remains a history journal, however, so the main focus of the papers need to be historical.

The editors are also open to suggestion for special thematic issues. These suggestions should include an idea of whom we could approach as guest editors.

SHAD is published under the auspices of the Alcohol and Drug History Society (ADHS) twice annually, in the Fall (Issue 1) and in the Spring (Issue 2) of each year.

To submit a paper, authors should submit either three copies of a printed manuscript by regular mail or one digital version in MS Word or WordPerfect format to the Editor-in-Chief. Digital copies are preferred, and will usually be evaluated much more quickly than hard copy submissions. We aspire to have decisions to the authors within one or two months of paper submission.

For more information, please contact Dan Malleck, editor-in-chief of SHAD at the email address listed below, or view the society’s website, at the URL listed below.
