The new edition from the research journal Alcohol and Alcoholism focuses on the impact oh alcohol on young people.
The papers in this new collection focus on the relationship between alcohol and young people from childhood to early adulthood. The collection includes papers ranging from May 2019 until February 2021.
Overall, research suggests that even moderate drinking by parents may impact children. At the same time, young children’s familiarity with alcohol may put them at risk of early alcohol initiation.
The collection goes on to explore alcohol use in adolescence, from neurobiological implications to association with sexual identity and STI risk; and considers a cohort of adolescents and young adults when analysing the relationship of drinking behaviours with social media use and risk of violence respectively.
Finally, it follows trajectories of alcohol use in early adulthood, with articles assessing predictors of Alcohol Use Disorder (AUD), considering the role of gender and age on drinking practices, and examining withdrawal-associated muscle pain hypersensitivity in healthy episodic binge drinkers.
All articles will be free to access and share until the 14th of June, with a view to disseminating scientific knowledge on the impact of alcohol on young people.
