2016 Thematic Series: Disordered Gambling and Health-related Problems

Disordered gambling is derived from a complex interplay of neuro-biological and psycho-social factors.

The special issue aims at promoting academic debates and exchange on this important topic.
We invite original research articles, and evidence-based discussion papers on awareness and preventive efforts, treatment services and policy intervention strategies. SpringerOpen sponsors the 2016 Best Paper Award (a Certificate and HK$2500 or US$330) to the winner(s) of the 2016 Best Paper. The results will be announced at the journal website in August 2017.
