Social Science Research Network Expands to Include the Field of Conflict

Scholars in economics, finance and related fields have had for some time now an online system and network for posting and sharing working papers. This system, called Social Science Research Network (SSRN) is now expanding to include other social sciences, and scholars in field of conflict and negotiation are starting to delineate a new corner of the system.

A consortium of scholars led by Harvard's Program on Negotiation (PON) and including members of the Academy of Management's Conflict Management Division and International Association for Conflict Management have been working to get the new system up and running. By early 2002 the group expects to have in place the means for all of us to post and share working papers and abstracts through this system.

SSRN is a network that was developed for rapid worldwide dissemination of social science research. It is composed of a number of specialized research networks in each of the social sciences (accounting, economics, financial economics, law and management). For negotiations and conflict resolution, which is part of the management network, the field has been categorized into the following sub-areas, called abstracting journals: two-party negotiations, negotiation processes and communications, decision-making, justice, multiparty negotiations, third party intervention, conflict and dispute resolution, culture and conflict and negotiation applications.
