Journal of Gambling Issues

The Journal of Gambling Issues (JGI) is the world's first and longest-running online, peer-reviewed academic journal established for the purpose of understanding problem gambling. The scope of the journal has since expanded to include the study of problem gaming and other addictive technologies.

JGI is an open-access, indexed journal that provides a scientific forum for developments in gambling and gaming-related research, policy and treatment. The aim of the journal is to make sense of how these issues affect people, families and communities, through the publication of peer-reviewed articles focusing on the social aspects of gambling/gaming, as well as on prevention and treatment strategies.

Published by the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health, and funded by the Ontario Substance Abuse Bureau of the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care, our journal invites manuscripts submitted by researchers and clinicians, people with problem gambling/gaming experience and their family and friends.
