Social Justice Research (SJR) is now embarking on its 25th year, and we are pleased to have been granted the trust to contribute to its management and development during the next 5 years. It is the official journal of the International Society for Justice Research (ISJR) and was founded in 1987 by Melvin Lerner who also was its first Editor. He wanted an international multidisciplinary orientation of the journal, and we share this ambition with him as does Clara Sabbagh, the new President of the ISJR, whose ambition is an expansion of the society to include more members from countries and disciplines that are presently under-represented.
A number of outstanding scholars from different disciplines and countries have agreed to serve as Associate Editors. They are, in alphabetical order: Sarah Brosnan (Georgia State University), Jon Elster (Columbia University), Ernst Fehr (University of Zurich), Adrian Furnham (University College London), Mario Gollwitzer (Philipps-University Marburg), Ja
