CFP: Alcohol, Public Policy, and Social Science

CALL FOR PAPERS

Special Issue of Contemporary Social Science

Alcohol, Public Policy, and Social Science

Alcohol has been a part of most human societies since civilization began. Yet, their relation has been far from unproblematic with several attempts at regulation and even prohibition.

This special issue will highlight the rich interdisciplinary social science research on alcohol and public policy. We welcome original articles from a range of different perspectives exploring all relevant areas of alcohol, public policy, and social science including case studies and critical reviews on topics such as alcoholism; the economics of alcohol (including marketing and taxation); feminist approaches to alcohol; homelessness and alcohol; public disorder, public drunkenness, and violence; and youth and alcohol.

Manuscripts should follow the usual instructions for electronic submission of papers to Contemporary Social Science. Authors should indicate that they wish the manuscript to be reviewed for inclusion in the special issue. The Editors of this issue would be happy to review plans for papers in advance of their receipt. All papers will be peer reviewed. The closing date for submitting papers is 30th April 2012. The corresponding Special Editor for this issue is Thom Brooks (t.brooks@newcastle.ac.uk).
