Journal of Behavior Analysis and Therapy (jBAT)

at the following World Wide Web site:
(Link inactive 1 June 2004)

The Journal of Behavior Analysis and Therapy (jBAT) will be a peer-reviewed
journal of basic behavior analysis, applied behavior analysis and behavior
theory and therapy. The journal will have full graphical capabilities as
well. The editorial board of jBAT is composed of an international
assemblage of behavior analysts, behavior therapists, and behavioral
theoreticians. Sections of jBAT will be devoted to behavioral assessment,
behavior therapy (child and adult), and other cutting edge behavioral
research in applied behavior analysis, behavioral medicine, behavioral
pharmacology, organizational behavior management, development and behavior
analysis, behavior analysis and education, and methodological issues in
behavior analysis. A section of jBAT will also be dedicated to student
issues and research in behavior analysis and therapy. Another section of
jBAT will be devoted to reviewing and abstracting other cutting edge
research in basic and applied behavior analysis. Comprehensive review
articles are welcome on a topic relevant to behavior analysis, broadly
defined. In short, the journal would be a comprehensive treatment
ofadvances in behavior analysis and therapy, integrating basic behavioral
research, and cutting across the disciplines of behavior analysis and
behavior therapy. This type of journal does not even appear in the printed
area at present. The coupling of this new format for the integration of
behavior analysis and behavior therapy, as well as the use of the Internet
for rapid dissemination of empirical data and reviews over the World Wide
Web puts this project in a unique position in the history of our scientific
