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, intergroup,
intergovernmental, or international-can be addressed through means  other than
coercion, withdrawal, or capitulation. Disputes, we believe, challenge protagonists,
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 instruc-
tive. 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 deliber-
ately multidisciplinary, as is the composition of its International Advisor y 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 policy-makers, marriage counselors, labor
negotiators, environmental mediators, businesspeople, scholars in such fields as
political science, law, international relations, economics, planning, social psy-
chology, sociology, mathematics, public policy, industrial and labor relations, busi-
ness 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, theoretical
pieces, dialogues, reports of educational innovations, integrative book reviews, case
histories, 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 elabora-
tion of a specific topic.
  Third, Negotiation Journal is eclectic in its approach to dealing with differences.
We  believe that effective negotiation depends on an understanding of broader issues
such as: the circumstances in which negotiation itself is an appropriate or possible
procedure; the role in dispute settlement of various forms of third-party interven-
tion; the application of negotiation to arenas in which this process has not previously
been utilized, or in which other forms of dispute settlement have held sway. Most
generally, our approach to negotiation is guided by the view that it is ultimately more
important to pose wise questions than to obtain wise answers. To this end, we are
interested in and responsive to new, varied, and unusual approaches to the nego-
tiation process.
