Some types of articles that Addiction publishes are written by invitation only – including but not limited to editorials, commentaries, book reviews, Addiction Debate papers, and papers in some of our special series.  If you are interested in contributing such an article, please email the London office ( with a proposal.

If an article is formally invited, it will still undergo peer review and may be rejected.

When it comes to submitting invited articles, authors should be sure to select “Europe, Africa & Asia” as the Regional Office.
