About the Journal

Behavior Analysis: Research and Practice is a multidisciplinary journal committed to increasing the communication between the sub-disciplines within behavior analysis and psychology, and bringing up-to-date information on current developments within the field.

It publishes original research, reviews of the discipline, theoretical and conceptual work, applied research, program descriptions, research in organization and the community, clinical work, and curricular developments.

Areas of interest include but are not limited to Clinical Behavior Analysis, Behavioral Therapy, Behavioral Consultation, Organizational Behavior Management, Human Performance Technology, and Cognitive Behavior Therapy.

The journal is divided into two sections:

  • Behavioral Analysis Today presents current experimental and translational research, and applications of behavioral analysis, in ways that can improve human behavior in all its contexts: across the developmental continuum in organizational, community, residential, clinical, and any other settings in which the fruits of behavior analysis can make a positive contribution.
  • Behavior Consultation and Therapy provides a focused view of behavioral consultation and therapy for the general behavioral intervention community. Additionally, this section highlights the importance of conducting clinical research from a strong theoretical base. Additional topic areas of interest include contextual research, third wave research, and clinical articles.
