Social Sciences will begin accepting manuscripts for a special issue on "Social and Personal Relationships", which will deal with all aspects of the development, conduct and dissolution of all kinds of relationships and interpersonal interaction. Papers are invited on romantic relationships, marriage, friendship all across the life span, and everyday interpersonal interaction, whether the relationship is the dependent or independent variable or the topic of qualitative study of everyday communication. All papers will be carefully reviewed by experts and successful papers will be published online in Social Science http://www.mdpi.com/journal/socsci with a starting date of November 2013.
