Journal Mission

Trust is imperative to constructivesocial interaction and cooperation at and acrossall levels. Positioned as a high-impact source journal providing novel ideas for other journals (both academic and practical), the mission of JTR is:

to inquire into the nature, form, base and role of trust as well as the mechanism and stage of trust-building and trust repairat and across personal, group, organizational, community and nationallevels so as to facilitate andstimulate informed academic dialogue anddebate toward an integrative body ofknowledge via both relevant and rigorous theory-building and theory-testing to influence individuals, groups,organizations, communitiesand nations in the choice ofpracticalsolutionsfor theirtrust-related managementby providing the most relevant and rigorous research.

Journal Philosophy

JTR is particularly interested in those studies that are inter-disciplinary, cross-cultural, cross-level, multi-method, context-rich, process-oriented, and practice-relevant in perspectives, so as to effectively investigate the holistic content and dynamic process of organizational and societal trust, without the perils of reductionist assumptions. JTR identifies the above as the emerging trends with thegreatest potential to contribute to our rich and deep understanding about the complexphenomenon of trust.

Journal Scope

As an inter-disciplinary and cross-cultural journal dedicated to advancing a cross-level, context-rich, process-oriented, and practice-relevant journal, JTR provides a focal point for an open dialogue and debatebetween diverse researchers, thus enhancing the understanding of trust in general and trust-related management in particular, especially in its organizational and social context in the broadest sense. Through both theoretical development and empirical investigation, JTR seeks to open the "black-box" of trust in various contexts.

JTR aims to publish relevant and rigorous research contributing to knowledge in six major domains that are interdisciplinary and cross-cultural:

General research on trust to build an integrative framework with a common language across disciplines and across cultures (building upon but extending beyond disciplinary and cultural perspectives) General research on trust at and across the levels of individual, group, organization, community, and nation Specific research on trust management within and between organizations and societies Specific research on interpersonal trust within and between organizations and societies Specific research on institutional trust within and between organizations and societies Specific research on inter-organizational and social trust within and across nations

Journal Readership

JTR specializes in dedicated research on trust in general and organizational trust in particular, thereby serving the needs primarilyof scholars and secondarily practitioners. The unique features of JTR as a focal point for an inter-disciplinary, cross-cultural, cross-level, context-rich, process-oriented, and practice-relevant research Journalwill appeal to the broadest readership, especially those who believe in such values as the indicators of high quality research.
