About the Journal

The Journal of Gambling Issues (JGI) is the world's first and longest-running online, academic journal dedicated to understanding problem gambling. Due to the increasing convergence of gambling and gaming, the JGI expanded its scope in 2020 to include problem video gaming and technology use

JGI is an open-access, indexed journal with a double blind peer review process that provides a scientific forum for developments in gambling-related research, policy issues, and treatments. JGI is now part of the Web of Science: Emerging Sources Citation Index. We are also indexed in Scopus, Crossref, Elselvier Series, Ebsco, Scimago and PsycInfo, among others. 

Publishing Schedule and Fees: Issues are published triannually, although manuscripts are made publicly available as soon as they have been accepted/typeset on the JGI Online First platform.  JGI does not charge any review or publication fees and is fully open access.

The JGI is published by the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health and funded by Ontario’s Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care. 

French Language Announcement: As of June 1, 2021 the JGI will no longer be accepting French language submissions.
