Links

A web search for ”gambling” yields about 38 million hits. There is an immense amount of information (and disinformation) about gambling on the internet. Here are my top picks of international sites, a complete list of gambling research journals and a selection of informative Swedish sites.

International sites – my top picks

Responsible Gambling Council (Canada). This site offers a huge online library and you can subscribe to a good newsletter.

Gambling Research Exchange Ontario (GREO). An abundance of information is offered in an organized way. For example, the Conceptual Framework of Harmful Gambling and the Knowledge Repository with summaries of research articles.

Center for Gaming Research, University of Nevada, Las Vegas. Offers a wealth of high quality information, publications and other resources.

Gambling and the Law Good source for information on gambling legislation, particularly in the US.
