New UK Mediation Journal

I would like to draw your attention to a new UK journal: Mediation Theory and Practice, to be published by the College of Mediators. The first edition is to be published in May 2016. The editorial board is comprised of a number of highly regarded academics and mediators from across the ADR world, including Elizabeth Stokoe, Loughborough University, Dale Bagshaw, University of South Australia, Australia, Samia Bano, SOAS, University of London, United Kingdom, Mavis Maclean, University of Oxford, United Kingdom, Madeline Maxwell, University of Texas at Austin, United States and Paulette Morris, University of Brunel, United Kingdom

The journal describes itself as “an international forum for original, peer-reviewed research about mediation, as well as practice and events reports, policy discussions and innovations in mediation training and education. The journal’s approach is multidisciplinary and it is a resource for academics, practitioners, trainers, and policy makers. … Mediation Theory and Practice welcomes empirical, theoretical and practice-based articles which display originality in terms of their theoretical developments, use of empirical materials, transfer and exchange of knowledge between academic, practitioner and policy audiences.”

A journal which integrates theory & practice across a range of mediation contexts will make a welcome contribution to the scholarship and implementation of mediation. The Journal has announced its first Call For Papers for the first volume. I hope that Australian ADR researchers and practitioners will respond to this invitation.
