Presenting Authors:

This is a meeting of the editors, reviewers, and governing board members as well as authors and potential authors. We welcome the American Psychological Association (APA) as our new publisher. We will discuss what we know about the transition to becoming online journals of the American Psychological Association, how that will affect authors, reviewers, and editors. There should be a much larger readership because of APA's great strength in marketing and its prestige. The readership and citation rate should rise and the tenure value to authors should increase. All are encouraged to attend and discuss the future and ask questions. Behavior Analysis Online APA Journals now include 1. Behavior Analyst Today (JBAT) Subsections on Behavior Analysis in Health, Sports, Fitness and Medicine Behavioral Health and Medicine Behavior Analysis of Offender and Victim Treatment and Prevention 2.
