Conflict & Dispute Resolution eJournal
Editor: Karen Jehn

This eJournal distributes working and accepted paper abstracts that analyze conflict and the attempts to resolve or manage conflicts. The term conflict is broadly interpreted to include disputes that are interpersonal, intra- or inter-team, organizational, or between organizations or other entities. Conflict and dispute resolution is distinctive from negotiation, as it focuses on what happens when parties are having problems reaching agreement. Subjects related to conflict resolution ay include: power and influence; status; emotion; trust; diversity; styles of handling conflict; personality characteristics; communication; verbal and nonverbal behavior during conflict; escalation; aggression; development of group biases; moderators and the antecedents and consequences of conflict. We are also interested in the effect of the organizational or situational context in which the dispute takes place and how this effects individual, group, or organizational outcomes such as performance, satisfaction, creativity, organizational citizenship behavior, etc. Both theory and empirical pieces are acceptable. We encourage a variety of research ethodologies such as qualitative (e.g. interviews, case studies or ethnography), experiments (laboratory or field) or survey research.
