An introduction to Addiction’s new series on gambling

Abstract

Gambling research is flourishing, and Addiction is initiating a new journal series to further stimulate interest in this area. Extension of funding opportunities and publication outlets for gambling research is an important goal to enhance understanding of this disorder, as well as minimize its potential harms. Research in the field of gambling has burgeoned over the past 10 years. With this increasing interest in gambling in general and pathological gambling more specifically, Addiction is making a timely decision to launch a new journal series-National Gambling Experiences-in this issue. This series is likely to spur even greater interest in gambling research and to move gambling to a place of greater prominence in the field of substance abuse and addictions.
