Abstract: The articles in this issue are published in the order in which they were submitted. In light of our editorial commitment to international and interdisciplinary scholarship (see Editor’s Preface, Personal Relationships, Volume 14, Issue 1), the members of my team and I are pleased to note that these eight articles and one brief report are authored by 19 scholars representing four disciplines (communication studies, psychiatry, marriage and family therapy, and psychology) and four countries (Israel, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, and the United States). One of the articles is the result of interdisciplinary collaboration (“The Initiator Style Questionnaire: A Scale to Assess Initiator Tendency in Couples,” by Wayne H. Denton, Psychiatry and Marriage and Family Therapy, and Brant R. Burleson, Communication Studies). This article reports on the findings from three samples, a community sample (married university employees, members of church groups, and residents of a retirement community), a clinical sample (married adults attending a general psychiatry clinic or a marriage and family therapy clinic), and a sample of adults who responded to advertisements inviting participation in a study of marital communication.
