The idea underlying the journal Group Decision and Negotiation emerges from evolving unifying approaches to group decision and negotiation processes. These processes are complex and self-organizing involving multiplayer multicriteria ill-structured evolving dynamic problems. Approaches include (1) computer group decision and negotiation support systems (GDNSS) (2) artificial intelligence and management science (3) applied game theory experiment and social choice and (4) cognitive/behavioral sciences in group decision and negotiation. A number of research studies combine two or more of these fields. The journal provides a publication vehicle for theoretical and empirical research and real-world applications and case studies. In defining the domain of group decision and negotiation the term 'group' is interpreted to comprise all multiplayer contexts. Thus organizational decision support systems providing organization-wide support are included.

Descriptive normative and design viewpoints are of interest. Thus Group Decision and Negotiation deals broadly with relation and coordination in group processes. Areas of application include intraorganizational coordination (as in operations management and integrated design production finance marketing and distribution e.g. as in new products and global coordination) computer supported collaborative work labor-management negotiations interorganizational negotiations (business government and nonprofits -- e.g. joint ventures) international (intercultural) negotiations environmental negotiations etc. The journal also covers developments of software for group decision and negotiation.
