The Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis (JABA) was established in 1968 as a peer-reviewed, psychology journal, that publishes research about applications of the experimental analysis of behavior to problems of social importance.
The journal is indexed in, among others, PubMed PsycINFO, and Web of Science. It is published quarterly by the Society for the Experimental Analysis of Behavior (SEAB). It typically publishes 80-90 articles per year. Its ISSN is 0021-8855. The current editor of JABA is Timothy R. Vollmer, University of Florida. The most recently released issue is Fall 2014 Volume 47, Issue 3. As of 2014, its impact factor is 1.087. SEAB also publishes the Journal of the Experimental Analysis of Behavior, which commenced publication in 1958.
Up until 2013, JABA was a delayed open access journal: all issues from 1968 onwards, except the most recent three, were available free from PubMed Central. JABA is now published by Wiley-Blackwell, and is only available to subscribers. However, articles up to and including the year 2012 are still available on PubMed Central.
Since 2009, JABA has experienced a decreasing trend in its impact factor from a high of 1.496 in 2009 to a low of 0.762 in 2012. In addition, the journal has seen a restriction of its content to largely developmental disabilities.
