Abstract: Since its inception, the various Editors and Associate Editors of Personal Relationships have strived to achieve its vision as an interdisciplinary and international journal. The team that oversaw the review process for the articles published in this issue is no exception. We have been working since June 1, 2005, when we first began processing new submissions, to attract and cultivate manuscripts submitted by authors from a variety of disciplines and countries. In addition to working with our publisher, Blackwell, to recruit authors from outside of psychology and residing in countries other than the United States, we have continued several traditions established by previous editorial teams to encourage interdisciplinary and international personal relationships scholarship. We, like our predecessors, firmly believe that interdisciplinary and comparative scholarship on personal relationships is necessary to advance theory and to increase how useful scholarship on this topic is to clinicians, policy makers, and other practitioners.
