Connections will publish a special issue on the application of social network analysis to understanding adolescent substance abuse issues. We invite empirical papers that incorporate the latest social network methods and theories using ego-centric (local) or sociometric (complete) data. Substances of interest include tobacco, alcohol, marijuana, and any other illicit substances. Deadline for completed papers is October 1, 2002 and should include 3 paper copies and an electronic version (Word or Wordperfect, including all graphics).
