                       Negotiation Journal:

                 On   the  Process   of Dispute Settlement

    Negotiation Journal: On the Process of Diispute 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 coer-
cion, 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 settlement, 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.
    Negotiationjournalis eclectic in three major respects. First, the journal is deliberate-
ly multidisciplinary, as is the composition of its International Advisory Board. We hope that
Negotiation Journalwill 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 medi-
ators, businesspeople, scholars in such fields as political science, law, international rela-
tions, economics, planning, social psychology, sociology, mathematics, public policy, in-
dustrial 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 ofpractitioners, 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 elaboration 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 intervention; 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 negotiation process.
