Special Call for Submissions
Conflict Resolution Quarterly
Lessons from the Front Lines:
Evidence and research-based articles from seasoned ADR/CR professionals
Conflict Resolution Quarterly publishes scholarship on relationships between theory, research, and practice in the conflict management and dispute resolution field to promote more effective professional applications. Conflict Resolution Quarterly is sponsored by the Association for Conflict Resolution.
This call for papers is designed to elicit a thoughtful examination of evidence-based practices of seasoned professionals in the field of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) and Conflict Resolution (CR). Each article should include a review of any applicable literature and support all claims with research and references.
All submissions on this topic are welcome. Suggested topics might include but are not limited to:
• How are seasoned ADR/CR professionals’ intervention strategies different from novices?
• How have their experiences shaped their intervention practices and strategies?
• How do we apply reflective practice to ADR/CR? What can we learn from other fields?
• How well are the trainings for ADR/CR professionals preparing neutrals for their work? What changes, if any are needed? What did you learn in training that proved inaccurate in practice?
• What are the unanswered questions on which researchers or practitioners should be focused?
• What trends and pressures are currently shaping these questions?
• How has your mediation, Ombuds or ADR practice changed with greater experience?
All articles should reflect an understanding of previous discussions in the literature on the chosen question (a literature review), include a 100 word abstract, and meet CRQ formatting guidelines. CRQ uses a double-blind peer review process to assure fair and equal access to all authors. Deadline is November 1, 2018. Submissions received after this date may be considered for inclusion in a later edition of CRQ.
