• 大类 : 医学 - 3区

This special issue will address the affective and cognitive processes and their interactions potentially reflecting mechanisms underlying the development, maintenance of, or recovery from behavioral addictions. Various specific types of behavioral addictions will be considered, those already included in ICD-11 (gambling disorder, gaming disorder), but also new phenomena that are not yet classified (e.g., buying-shopping disorder, social-network- disorder) and phenomena potentially belonging to behavioral addictions although they are currently classified elsewhere (e.g., compulsive sexual behavior disorder). Manuscripts should investigate directly affective processes (e.g., cue-reactivity, craving, mood, stress, social interactions etc.) and/or cognitive processes (e.g., executive functions, attention, memory). Priority will be given to studies that investigate affective and/or cognitive processes in behavioral addictions using experimental paradigms, neuropsychological tasks, psychophysiological measures, and neuroimaging techniques. We also welcome manuscripts dealing with the relationship between affective/cognitive processes and diagnostic criteria of behavioral addictions and phenotypes of addictive behaviors as well.
We will consider full-length articles (≤3500 words) and short communications (≤2000 words) presenting original experimental-empirical studies. Case studies (≤2500 words), systematic reviews and meta-analyses (≤4000 words), and mini-reviews (≤2500 words) will also be considered, presupposed that these manuscripts substantially contribute to new insights into affective and cognitive mechanisms involved in behavioral addictions and have new theoretical or clinical impact.
The special issue article type will be open to submissions on 1st September 2019 with a deadline for manuscript submission of 1st December 2019 for consideration of inclusion in this special issue. All submissions must adhere to journal guidelines and will undergo peer review. Accepted papers will be published online individually prior to print publication. To be considered for this special issue, the authors must select “VSI: Affective and cognitive processes” as the article type from the drop-down menu.
Prior to submitting a manuscript, the authors are encouraged to submit a brief letter of intent including an abstract of the planned manuscript to the Guest Editors, Dr. Elisa Wegmann (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Dr. Matthias Brand (email@example.com) to ensure that the topic fits within the scope of this special issue.
