Special Issue "Alcohol Perception and Consumption"
A special issue of Beverages (ISSN 2306-5710).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 December 2015).
Alcohol is one of the most widely consumed drugs in the world and in many countries is deeply ingrained in the respective culture and tradition. One of the challenges of alcohol research is to bring together researchers from different areas to provide a more complete picture of our current knowledge. This Special Issue aims to increase our collective understanding of alcohol and would be particularly interested in the following topics:
- Factors that influence the effects or perceived effects of alcohol (e.g., environment, social aspects, certain foods)
- Sensory aspects of the properties of alcohol (including taste, smell, perceived strength)
- Recovery from alcohol addiction (connection to sensory aspects)
- Cultural differences in alcohol and alcohol related behaviour (could use quantitative/qualitative methodology)
- Influences on alcohol consumption—experimental work that examines how consumption can be influenced (e.g., packaging, price, availability).
Researchers are welcome to contact the guest editor to check the suitability for submission topics.
