Business Meeting #280
Encyclopedia of Psychology
Sunday, May 25, 2014
6:00 PM–6:50 PM
W176a (McCormick Place Convention Center)
Chair: William L. Palya (Jacksonville State University)
Presenting Authors:

The Encyclopedia of Psychology ( has a strong behavior analytic structure and is in the first five hits when "psychology" is entered into a Google search. It is very popular among high school and introductory college students, and receives more than 50,000 hits a day. This meeting is to discuss publication opportunities in the Encyclopedia of Psychology. The explicit goal of the Encyclopedia of Psychology is the dissemination of behavior analysis and to correct any erroneous psychological world views of its readers. Our intent is to provide a very broad range of short articles from a behavior analytic perspective. Articles could be applications (especially novel ones) of behavior analysis, short discussion/analyses of notable figures or perspectives in psychology from a behavior analytic perspective, and various white papers that articulate behavior analytic perspectives. Papers would typically be one to two pages, would include a figure and a short biography and picture of the author. The meeting is open to anyone, is conceptualized as a working group, and hopefully will include additional ideas and strategies from the floor.
