Aims and scope of the journal

The journal Négociations is a peer-reviewed academic journal (double-blind evaluation) that covers formal or informal negotiations as well as related processes (conflict, deliberation or joint decision-making processes) by considering negotiation as an ordinary practice of social life. The journal aims at analyzing social interactions between actors confronted with real or supposed divergences to be overcome or with subjects of common interests on which to agree.

The activity of negotiation, deliberation, conflict management, or joint decision-making must be at the heart of the articles proposed to the journal: it cannot be a mere secondary or contextual element. The journal wishes to publish articles that give a detailed account of the processes and results of negotiations, of the practices and actors who negotiate as well as of the contexts in which they take place. The articles must enrich theory, concepts or the knowledge of a field or of an empirical case study.

The editorial line of Négociations evolves around three major perspectives by being:

  • An academic journal open to different perspectives: the journal welcomes theoretical and/or empirical contributions, which can be based on various methodologies. The journal is also open to practitioners (via the Grands Entretiens or by welcoming their possible contributions) and accepts contributions with a pedagogical stance.
  • An inter- and multi-disciplinary journal: the subject of negotiation can be approached from a variety of disciplines (sociology, management, law, economics, political science, history, psychology, anthropology, industrial relations, etc.).
  • A French-language journal with an international openness: articles can be published in English. It aims to disseminate the work of French-speaking academics and to have other research traditions on negotiation discussed with French-speaking productions.

Although generalist in scope, the journal is structured around two main themes: international relations (IR) and employment relations (ER) in order to best deal with proposals submitted to the journal (but without excluding proposals outside these two themes).
