The History of the Alcohol and Alcoholism Journal

1983 - to date

The MCA journal 'Alcohol and Alcoholism' was launched in 1983 by Dr Allan Thomson, Dr Spencer Madden and Dr Abdulla Badaway.  The journal is the official journal of both the MCA and ESBRA.

In an effort to highlight the health problems caused by alcohol, the MCA originally produced a journal called 'The British Journal on Alcohol and Alcoholism' that was distributed free of charge, quarterly, to GP's throughout the UK.

To mark the 30th anniversary of the Journal, a special editorial was published in 2013 which is available to view online: Click here. Or you can View the PDF version by clicking here.
