WFR seeks to encourage and facilitate communication among researchers and practitioners in all related fields and from all geographic, social, political, and economic sectors. It is also intended to promote public understanding and education in the methods and use of futures research. The concern of the editors is thus not only with specific techniques and planning tools; we also wish to include analyses of the role of futures research in the larger context of decision-making.
In addition to full-length articles, WFR will publish, from time to time, responsible reactions to articles and the ideas presented in them; short notices from Editorial Board members; news items; reprints of pertinent classic papers; interviews with prominent futurists; and abstracts or more detailed reviews of selected new books and reports. Because it is not always possible to present all viewpoints within the confines of a single issue, we rely upon WFR readers to provide the necessary balance through their responses to controversial or one-sided material.
In brief, it is our intention that this journal shall provide a forum for all who are professionally involved with the theory, methodology, practice, and use of futures research.
