Mission - Italian Quarterly Journal of Addiction - represents more than fifteen years of Italian health services’ experience, interpreting the vision of a complex concept of addiction (biological, individual and social) and its treatment. Always attentive to the epistemological assumptions underlying consumption and abuse phenomena, Mission provide new opportunities of knowledge, updating and discussion to the professionals in the field of Addiction, aiming to be a point of reference for scholars belonging to the related disciplines (Neuroscience, Psychology/Psychotherapy, Management, Social Sciences and Law, etc ..). The purpose is to present solid and updated scientific evidence, with an eye to the possibility to transfer the implications on the field, considering daily criticalities but also looking forward to the changes in progress in the prevention, clinical area and research. The articles proposed for the section "Essays, studies and research" of the journal are evaluated through a system of double-blind peer review, according to which both referees and authors remain anonymous to ensure relevant and rigorous scientific publications.

In the case of research papers, articles submitted to the journal are typically screened by the editor or one of the associate editors to determine whether the manuscript falls within Journal’s Aims and Scope and satisfies the academic standards of the field. Papers are then assigned to an editor who oversees the entire editorial process including the final decision on the manuscript. If judged suitable for publication, the manuscript is sent to at least two independent referees for double blind peer review. Based on their recommendation, as well as possible consultation between Editorial Board members, the editor decides whether the paper should be accepted as it is, revised or rejected.
