Advances in Group Processes publishes theoretical, review, and empirically-based papers on group phemena. The series adopts a broad conception of 'group processes' consistent with prevailing ones in the social psychological literature. In addition to topics such as status processes, group structure, and decision making, the series considers work on interpersonal behaviour in dyads (i.e. the smallest group). Contributors to the series include t only sociologists but also scholars from other disciplines, such as psychology and organizational behaviour.
