The Psychological Record

We are delighted to announce that ABAI will now publish the esteemed quarterly journal The Psychological Record (ISSN # 00332933). Previously produced by Southern Illinois University, Carbondale, the journal includes empirical and conceptual articles related to the field of behavior analysis, behavior science, and behavior theory.


The Psychological Record (TPR) was founded in 1937 by renowned interbehaviorist J. R. Kantor, and B. F. Skinner served as the first experimental department editor.


The journal welcomes investigations of basic behavioral processes, as well as translational studies that bridge experimental and applied analyses of behavior. Conceptual articles pertinent to the theory and philosophy of behaviorism are also welcome.


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