                     Negotiation Journal:

                   On the  Process of Dispute  Settlement


  Negotiation  journal: On  the Process of Dispute Settlement is guided by an
explicit point of view. We believe that most disputes - be they interpersonal, inter-
group, intergovernmental, or international - can be addressed through means other
than coercion, withdrawal, or capitulation. Disputes, we believe, challenge protago-
nists, interested observers, and would-be intervenors to find new and creative ways
of moving toward a settlement of differences. Moreover, quite independent of settle-
ment, the very process of working toward wise agreements requires continued and
vigorous attention. It is the mission of Negotiation Journal to encourage the search
for and development of better techniques for dealing with differences through the
give-and-take of negotiation.
  Although   we are primarily  interested in success stories, we believe that
instances of failure to reach agreement or inability to find a wise solution are
equally instructive. Such examples can stimulate creative efforts to explain and
modify negotiation strategies in ways that advance the journal's mission. Effective
negotiation practice, we believe, can be both influenced and informed by  the
diverse experiences of the negotiators themselves.
  Negotiation  Journal is eclectic in three major respects. First, the journal is
deliberately multidisciplinary, as is the composition of its Editorial Policy Commit-
tee and International Advisory Board. We hope that Negotiation Journal will be
read and utilized by everyone interested in and committed to the practice and
analysis of negotiation. Lawyers, diplomats, politicians, public- and private-sector
policymakers, marriage counselors, labor negotiators, environmental mediators,
businesspeople, scholars in such fields as political science, law, international rela-
tions, economics, planning, social psychology, sociology, mathematics, public pol-
icy, industrial and labor relations, business administration, organizational behavior
-  these are the sorts of people for whom Negotiation Journal is intended.
  At a second level, Negotiation Journal is eclectic in the variety of articles that it
seeks to publish. We invite the participation of practitioners, theorists, researchers,
advisers, and teachers. New and better ideas for the practice of coping with conflict,
we  believe, can be generated only through a free exchange of ideas and points of
view. To this end, we will publish a variety of features: research reports, short
columns, longer articles focused on theory development or actual practice, reports
of educational innovations, integrative book reviews, case studies, accounts of
notable successes and notable misadventures, even polemics. We also encourage
interested individuals to submit proposals for special issues of Negotiation Journal,
to be devoted in their entirety to the exploration and elaboration of a specific topic.
   Third, Negotiation Journal is eclectic in its approach to dealing with differ-
ences. We  believe that effective negotiation depends on an understanding  of
broader issues such as: the circumstances in which negotiation itself is an appropri-
ate or possible procedure; the role in dispute settlement of various forms of third-
party intervention; the application of negotiation to arenas in which this process
