Critical Gambling Studies is an open access, double-blind peer-reviewed journal published bi-annually. We welcome original research and writing from researchers working in established disciplines including: philosophy, psychology, anthropology, sociology, politics, criminology, aesthetics, history, economics, literature, theology, art history and architecture, tourism and leisure studies, public health and law. We are also keen to consider interdisciplinary approaches to gambling research within an activist tradition. Our focus is primarily on research in the humanities and social sciences, but we would be excited to see innovative and accessible work in medicine, life sciences and other disciplines. We are open to any methodological tradition, including: phenomenology; ethnography; meta-analysis and big data analytics; critical race and indigenous studies; conjunctural analysis; experimental studies; survey methods; fieldwork; semiotic analysis; psychoanalysis; political economy; narrative analysis; statistical analysis and quantitative methods; and archival research.
