Abstract

Human geographers have been at the forefront of efforts across the social sciences to develop "assemblage thinking", applying and extending this model in a series of highly original empirical studies. This commentary assesses some of the conceptual, methodological and procedural implications of this research for contemporary drug studies. I will argue that the most useful way of approaching assemblage thinking in the analysis of drug problems is to focus on the ways assemblages draw together social, affective and material forces and entities. I will briefly review these three nodes before indicating how their analysis may inspire novel empirical assessments of drug assemblages. I will conclude by exploring how the assemblage may replace the 'subject' and 'social context' as a discrete unit of analysis in drug studies.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 26 October 2015.
All research outputs
#7,685,923
of 12,301,191 outputs
Outputs from International Journal of Drug Policy
#1,345
of 1,546 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#137,762
of 262,243 outputs
Outputs of similar age from International Journal of Drug Policy
#59
of 64 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,301,191 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 23rd percentile – i.e., 23% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 1,546 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 13.5. This one is in the 8th percentile – i.e., 8% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 262,243 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 37th percentile – i.e., 37% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 64 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 4th percentile – i.e., 4% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
