The dissemination of the science of behavior has occurred and continues to spread around the world. Maybe not at the rate we would like to see, but nevertheless, at a rate that increases impact. The state of the science, internationally as well as within the United States, must be evaluated as behavior analysis continues to spread. This discussion will take a closer look at the state of academics, the application, and experimental aspects of behavior analysis. The integrity of continuing dissemination while maintaining integrity of the science will be reviewed. The discussants will talk about how each came into contact with the science, his or her education, experimental analysis, and individual application of the science in day-to-day life in his or her respective country. Finally, the discussants will propose goals that we all must meet in order to maintain the integrity of the science as it continues to disseminate around the world.
