Advances in Group Processes
Advances in Group Processes publishes theoretical analyses, reviews, and theory-based empirical chapters on group phenomena. The series adopts a broad conception of "group processes." This includes work on groups ranging from the very small to the very large, and on classic and contemporary topics such as status, power, trust, justice, social influence, identity, decision-making, intergroup relations, and social networks.

Volume 35 brings together papers related to a variety of topics in small groups and organizational research. The volume includes papers that address theoretical and empirical issues relating to consumer behavior, vocal accommodation, measuring aggression, social identity theory, and criminal sentencing. Other contributions examine reverse discrimination, perceptions of responsibility for the behaviors of others, and expectations and coordination in small groups. Overall, the volume includes papers that reflect a wide range of theoretical approaches from leading scholars who work in group processes.
