Behavior Analysis in Practice

Behavior Analysis in Practice (BAP) is a peer-reviewed translational publication designed to provide science-based, best-practice information relevant to service delivery in behavior analysis. The target audience includes front-line service workers and their supervisors, scientist-practitioners, and school personnel. The mission of BAP is to promote empirically validated best practices in an accessible format that describes not only what works, but also the challenges of implementation in practical settings. The inaugural issue of BAP was published in the spring of 2008.


New manuscripts for BAP should be submitted online after reviewing the instructions for authors.
