Oxford University Press (OUP) is pleased to announce that it has entered a new long-term collaboration with the Medical Council on Alcohol (MCA) to jointly publish the journal Alcohol and Alcoholism.At the end of 2011, OUP bought a 50 per cent stake in the journal Alcohol and Alcoholism, which was previously wholly owned by the Medical Council on Alcohol, a charity founded in 1967 to improve the understanding and management of alcohol related health problems.
“The Medical Council on Alcohol is delighted that OUP, the longstanding publisher of Alcohol and Alcoholism, has now become a co-owner of the journal in equal partnership with the Council", said Dominique Florin, Medical Director of the MCA. “This transition offers a period of stability for the MCA which will allow us develop the journal and our other activities in the alcohol and heath field. We have had an excellent relationship with OUP over many years and know from experience that this collaboration will be successful and allow Alcohol and Alcoholism to continue to flourish."
“Oxford University Press is extremely pleased to be partnering with the MCA in the ownership of Alcohol and Alcoholism” said Mandy Hill, Publishing Director, OUP. “We look forward to continuing our excellent relationship with the Council and further developing the journal as one of the leading resources in its field.”
Alcohol and Alcoholism publishes papers on biomedical, psychological, and sociological aspects of alcoholism and alcohol research. Papers include new results obtained experimentally, descriptions of new experimental (including clinical) methods of importance to the field of alcohol research and treatment, or new interpretations of existing results. Theoretical papers on alcohol research are also considered for publication. For more information about the journal, please visit: http://alcalc.oxfordjournals.org/.
