JABAAT is an open access journal, meaning readers may access our articles at no charge. We do not charge publication fees for authors.
We know that in the past you had to search hard for an appropriate place to publish your animal-related ABA research. Search no more. We welcome you to submit your work for our exciting inaugural issue.
The mission of this publication is to address the dearth of professional, practical and understandable studies that benefit the non-human animals that live in close proximity to human animals. The Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis in Animal Training (JABAAT) will publish original empirical research, replication reports, case studies, reviews, guidelines on best practices for service delivery, theoretical papers and related research. The Editorial Board welcomes submissions from behavior analysts, animal care professionals, ethologists and others. Although statistical analyses will be accepted, data from single animals must be present. Subjects’ behaviors should be socially significant; individual behavioral variation should be presented. Measures of behavior should, for the most part, be direct.
Subject matter may include all topics of applied behavior analysis (ABA), such as has been studied in human behavior; from the principles of behavior (reinforcement, punishment, stimulus control, extinction and motivating operations) to the myriad of advanced topics in ABA, including socially significant applications of behavioral momentum, stimulus equivalence, matching law, and others. It is expected that, along with original research, experimenters may strive to replicate the translational research that came from laboratories in the tradition of B.F. Skinner, where the experimental analysis of behavior set the stage for ABA with humans.
