The Journal of Collective Negotiations was a peer-reviewed academic journal which published articles regarding collective bargaining. The target audience for the journal was academics, students, employers, workers, and collective bargaining negotiators. It was published quarterly until 2008 by Baywood Publishing. The journal was cited by the Oxford Handbook of Work and Organization as a critical journal in collective bargaining theory and issues.[1] A common textbook in Industrial and organizational psychology has cited the journal as one of two key publications in that very narrow field.[2] It also has been quoted by the National Labor Relations Board.[3]

Aims and scope[edit]

The Journal of Collective Negotiations was established in 1972 as the Journal of Collective Negotiations in the Public Sector. The last issue was published in 2008.[4] Its establishment was a direct outgrowth of the expansion of collective bargaining rights in the United States to public sector workers.[4] By 1979, Contemporary Sociology was calling it one of the most prominent journals in the labor relations field.[5]

The journal changed its name in 2004 to reflect a broadening of its editorial mission. It currently publishes articles, book reviews, and comments on collective bargaining in both the private and public sectors. It covers a wide range of topics, including collective bargaining economics, preparation for bargaining, techniques at the bargaining table, labor law, dispute resolution, arbitration, impasse resolution, new developments in collective bargaining language, organizational behavior, contract administration, faculty salaries, the history of collective bargaining and labor-management relationships, and laws and regulations pertaining to collective bargaining. Although the journal focuses on the United States, many articles are comparative or transnational in focus. For example, Human Resources and Skills Development Canada has cited articles on comparable worth which have been published in the journal.[6]
