Abstract: By now you should have received the first three issues of Personal Relationships (Volume 14, Issues 1, 2, and 3) produced by my editorial team (Associate Editors: Susan Boon, Psychology, University of Calgary, Canada; Mario Mikulincer, Psychology, Bar-Ilan University, Israel; Denise Solomon, Communication Studies, Pennsylvania State University, United States; Rodney Cate, Emeritus, Family Studies, University of Arizona, United States; Catrin Finkenauer, Social Psychology, VU University, Amsterdam, The Netherlands; and Susan Branje, Adolescent Development, Utrecht University, The Netherlands and Editorial Assistant: Brandi McCullough). Note that in my editor’s prefaces to the first two of these issues, I discuss how we are working to achieve my editorial team’s goal for PR to become more international and interdisciplinary and the importance of placing personal relationships in structural and cultural context. I would urge potential authors to read these prefaces, because they provide insight into the types of issues that might be raised as a manuscript is reviewed. Associate Editor Mario Mikulincer authored the Editor’s Preface to the third of these issues and discussed the importance of building personal relationships theory, raising issues relevant for the future of our field. At the time of this writing, our fourth issue is all-but-finalized. The tentative table of contents is included in this issue.
