Current issue of KBS journal (Vol 10, No 1)

The Co-Editors-in-Chief, Professor Neo Morojele and Dr Anne-Marie Laslett are pleased to announce the release of the first issue of the 10th volume of the International Journal of Alcohol and Drug Research (IJADR) entitled: “Alcohol and childhood adversity, future health workers, improved consumption estimates and a new research agenda”.

In Volume 10 of IJADR for 2022, we include papers on (a) how a history of childhood neglect results in differential ratings of stress, affect, and desire to drink, during typical alcohol consumption sessions in moderate to heavy drinkers in the US A (Peterson et al., 2022); (b) a study of problematic alcohol consumption, knowledge about drinking limits and health risks among future health professionals in Tanzania (Kureh et al., 2022); (c) improved estimates of individual and population – level alcohol use in the United States, 1984–2020 (Buckley et al. 2022) and (d) a detailed discussion paper on a potential research agenda for alcohol policymaking in the wider world (Room et al., 2022).

These papers all focused on alcohol, a drug that continued to be consumed during the COVID-19 pandemic across the world, and in some cases in greater volumes and with more negative consequences.
