                   Negotiation Journal:

                 On  the Process of Dispute Settlement

This issue marks the start of the journal's twentieth year. It is also the first to
be created in collaboration with Blackwell Publishing, our new partner in this
enterprise. Some changes  may  have already caught your  eye, including a
redesigned cover and a more useful arrangement of the front matter.You also
may  have felt some greater heft - we are increasing our standard number of
pages by 20 percent to allow us to provide additional material that we hope
will be useful and interesting to our readers.
     Other innovations may soon be  in the offing, particularly after a brain-
storming session with the associate editors, our Blackwell colleagues, and other
friends at the Program on Negotiation. We also plan a reader survey to get an
up-to-date sense of what you want to see in the journal.We will surely take full
advantage of Blackwell's expertise in electronic publishing to make sure that
our authors' work reaches the broadest possible audience.
     Some  things will not change, however. One is our clear commitment
to forge the connection between theory and practice, so that people striving
to reach agreement  have access to the best current thinking and research
on negotiation. If we can also promote excellence in teaching, so much the
better.
     Another constant is Bill Breslin who, to our great good fortune, has served
as managing editor from the outset. No one knows the field and the people in
it as well as Bill does.We also continue to have the singular advantage of being
a central activity of the Program on Negotiation, an inter-university consortium
that spans Harvard University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and Tufts
University, and which also has important affiliations with faculty at other
schools locally and throughout the world. In addition to supporting the Journal,
the Program on  Negotiation sponsors exchange between academics and pro-
fessionals through conferences, workshops, and publication of research and
teaching materials in a variety of media.' These activities, in turn, stimulate the
creation of some of the material that finds its way to these pages.
     Many people who  were  on the journal's original masthead still actively
support the publication with keen editorial insight and their own contributions.
They  include Roger Fisher, Bob McKersie, Bruce Patton, Howard Raiffa, Mary
Rowe,  and Frank Sander. Others joined the crew soon after, notably Deborah
Kolb who  coedited the Journal for several years.
     There is, however, one  conspicuous  loss, our friend and colleague,
Jeff Rubin who  was  faculty editor from the first issue until his untimely
death in 1995. Jeff's zeal and eclectic breadth of interests gave the Journal a
distinctive identity that persists to this day. We remember him fondly and
