Instructions for Authors (PDF)

Online production tracking is available for your article through Wiley Author Services

Author Services enables authors to track their article – once it has been accepted – through the production process to publication online. Authors can check the status of their articles online and choose to receive automated e-mails at key stages of production, and, when published online access the article for free. Authors may also nominate up to 10 specialists to receive free access as well. The corresponding author will receive an e-mail with a unique link that enables them to register and have their article automatically added to the system. Please ensure that a complete e-mail address is provided when submitting the manuscript. Visit for more details on online production tracking and for a wealth of resources including FAQs and tips on article preparation, submission and more.

Copyright/License Agreement

Wiley Author Licensing Services (WALS) enables corresponding authors to complete their agreement via a browser-based interface. The corresponding authors interact with WALS but through Author Services. If your paper is accepted and is co-authored, the author identified as the formal corresponding author for the paper will receive an email prompting them to login into Author Services; where via the Wiley Author Licensing Service (WALS) they will be able to complete the license agreement on behalf of all authors on the paper. The terms and conditions of the CTA can be previewed in the samples associated with the Copyright FAQs below: CTA Terms and Conditions

A signed copyright transfer agreement/license is needed for publication. It is important to promptly complete this agreement within WALS. As part of the manuscript's production process, the journal's production editor will monitor that this is completed before the article can be published. The journal's production editor will check with the corresponding author in case the agreement within WALS has not happened within the required time and investigate toward resolution.

Early View Announcment

We are happy to announce that Conflict Resolution Quarterly is now part of Wiley’s Early View service. Articles will now be published on a regular basis online in advance of their appearance in a print issue. These articles are fully peer reviewed, edited and complete – they only lack page numbers and volume/issue details – and are considered fully published from the date they first appear online. This date is shown within the published article online. Because Early View articles are considered fully complete, please bear in mind that changes cannot be made to an article after the online publication date even if it is still yet to appear in print.

The articles are available as full text HTML or PDF and can be cited as references by using their Digital Object Identifier (DOI) numbers. For more information on DOIs, please see

To view all the articles currently available, please visit the journal homepage on and simply click on the “Early View” area at the top of the list of issues available to view. On print publication, the article will be removed from the Early View area and will appear instead in the relevant online issue, complete with page numbers and volume/issue details. No other changes will be made.

The implementation of Early View for Conflict Resolution Quarterly represents our commitment to get manuscripts available to view to the academic community as quickly as possible, reducing time to publication considerably without sacrificing quality or completeness.
