Call for Papers: Experimental and Clinical Psychopharmacology
Special Issue for August 2015 on: Sex Differences in Drug Abuse: Etiology and Implications for Prevention and Treatment
The goal of this special issue is to broadly highlight how males and females differ in their risks for substance abuse, in their responses to treatments, and in their relapse to substance use after a period of abstinence. Relevant approaches include (but are not limited to) laboratory behavioral, social behavior and environmental context, brain development and function, and the role of genetics, hormones and neuropeptides. Both animal and human methods are appropriate for this issue. Collaborative manuscripts that bridge animal and human findings are especially valued.
This special issue is intended to showcase the importance of studying sex differences in drug abuse and how this research might lead to more tailored approaches for prevention and treatment. Laboratories engaged in research in this area may submit review articles or primary research reports to Experimental and Clinical Psychopharmacology to be considered for inclusion in this special issue. Manuscripts should be submitted as usual through the APA Online Submission Portal (www.apa.org/pubs/journals/pha/), and the cover letter should indicate that the authors wish the manuscript to be considered for publication in the special issue on Sex Differences in Drug Abuse. All submissions will undergo our normal peer review. Manuscripts received no later than March 16, 2015 will be considered for inclusion in the special issue. We strongly encourage individuals to contact us in advance with their ideas and ideally a draft title and abstract.
