    Dear Conflict Management Division member! <o:p></o:p>

    I encourage you to submit your conflict related papers to the Journal of Conflict Management (JOCM). <o:p></o:p>

    A conflict-free state of mind may exist only in death! I came across this statement many years back while reading an old text. It still rings true to me today.  <o:p></o:p>

    Conflict is an integral part of life. We experience it in various forms, intensity and frequency at work, home, and in our daily interactions with others. Conflict is not necessarily a bad phenomenon. When properly managed, it opens up new opportunities for change and growth that should be further capitalized on and explored.  <o:p></o:p>

    And yet, it is surprising that despite being a ubiquitous phenomenon and an omnipresent construct, only a handful of peer review academic journals are dedicated to conflict.   <o:p></o:p>

    Among these very few journals is our university-based publication – The Journal of Conflict Management (JOCM). Multidisciplinary in nature, JOCM has been in existence for nine years, and is an online peer review journal with free access to all.  <o:p></o:p>

    We welcome all types of research papers – quantitative, qualitative and conceptual, as well as research notes, commentary, and relevant book reviews – that explore conflict from various angles, fields, and levels, and that make a contribution benefiting individuals and organizations alike.  <o:p></o:p>

    Again, I encourage you to submit your own work. Please spread the word! <o:p></o:p>

    You are welcome to review the most recent volume of The Journal of Conflict Management, (Volume 8, Issue 1) that was published a few days ago.  <o:p></o:p>
